#2 Living his dream

#3 People were thrown into economic war during the Great Recession in 2017
When the Great Recession hit the US in 2017, a lot of people lost their means of income and faced homelessness.
“Modesto got hit especially hard, it was ground zero for California as far as job loss and home loss, and people were just dumping their pets in shelters,” Stewart told CNN.
“That was the moment for me career-wise that was enlightening. Up until then, I’d been practicing high-end medicine for clients who could pay for everything. But suddenly I was thrown into this economic war and people couldn’t even afford to help their pets.”
