My Other Life – Michael Macomber

Michael Macomber

Michael Macomber

Job: Associate attorney at Tully Rinckey PLLC

Age: 30

Passion outside of work: Providing foster care for dogs and puppies. Michael Macomber and his wife, Deanndra, always have a lot of dogs in their Niskayuna home.

That’s because the couple have three of their own dogs, and they also provide foster care to dogs for the canine rescue agency Help Orphan Puppies, a local nonprofit agency that also runs an adoption program.

“We always seem to have them in the house,” Macomber said. “We usually have one or two foster puppies or dogs in our home.”

That may seem like a lot of work for two busy attorneys — and it is.

“It takes a lot of time and a lot of commitment,” said Macomber, who is a graduate of Union College and Albany Law School. “We train them all while they are here.”

Deanndra Macomber is on the board of Help Orphan Puppies, which was founded by Christina Francis. The group gets a lot of its dogs from shelters down south and then works to find people in the Capital Region who will adopt them. The process isn’t an easy one. Besides a $250 adoption donation, there is an application process as well as a phone interview, a reference check and a home visit. The group wants to know that the dogs are going to good homes.

People who are interested in providing a foster home for the animals or adopting one of their dogs can learn all they need to know at the organization’s website at
