Rescue Your Air & Drain’s founder and CEO, Mike Wilson, is a 20-year heavyweight in the Memphis HVAC industry.
As the former General Manager and Vice President of the largest heating and air conditioning company in the Memphis area, Mike has experience partnering with every warranty provider in the region.
A true customer-service guy at heart and an operations wizard, Mike believes passionately in doing right by his customers each and every time. That’s why he started Rescue Your Air & Drain.
Mike has a soft spot for animals in need, having rescued four of his own.
Stella, pictured here with her pint-sized sister, Gracie, had a rough start. Mike and his wife, Lori, rescued Stella from a Mississippi highway median.
Freezing and terrified as cars whizzed by her on both sides, Stella had clearly been in that highway ditch for some time. Her body was nearly frozen to the ground and she was emaciated.
Mike rushed her to the vet. After months of special care, Stella was on her way to becoming the big lovable lapdog that she is now.
Little Gracie was dropped off at a high-kill shelter, sadly, by owners who were less than thrilled that their purebred Yorkie didn’t have purebred puppies.
An animal rescue group fortunately pulled her from the shelter. Mike and Lori brought her into their home and have spoiled her ever since.
Mike is an equal-opportunity rescuer. In addition to the two rescue dogs, Mike has rescued two kittens into his forever home, too.
Mike found Henry, an orange tabby, with a badly injured tail in need of amputation. While Henry may have a short little nub of a tail now, he definitely isn’t short on courage.
And Piper, a grey tabby, has definitely had her 15 minutes of fame.
Having heard there was a tiny kitten stuck in a sewage pipe in the Binghampton area of Memphis, Mike brought his plumbing crew and equipment to the scene to see if they could lend a hand.
The big equipment scared her further underground, so Mike and his crew spent more than 15 hours digging her out by hand. They used their plumbing camera to keep an eye on her as they worked through the night.
When he finally got to her at 4 am, he knew that he’d be bringing her home. And naturally, her name would be Piper. Read more about Piper’s story below.
