One Wag at a Time – Patch


This weekend I watched a piece on The Today Show about The Tornado Dog. If you haven’t heard the story you can catch up HERE.

Watching his recovery I marveled at he extraordinary strength of people who care for injured, sick, abused and abandoned animals. 

This week’s Knowsy Neighbor, Lynn Nielsen-Eeg, is a prime example of one of these people I admire, respect and appreciate. She has dedicated her time, money and endless efforts to rescuing animals from all over the country. It is her purpose, her joy, her heartache and her world.

For years, Lynn would read about abused animals, and see programs picturing mistreated pets and she would have to change the channel. Witnessing acts of abuse, neglect, irresponsibility and apathy towards the furry companions of the world caused her significant pain. This is what inspired H.O.P.E. Safehouse.
