Watch how Bonnie Austin’s love of the animals started as little girl and how through the years has turned into a legacy of helping pets in need.

Bonnie Austin has loved animals as far back as she can remember. She was first introduced to Lollypop Farm when she was just 11 years old. Bonnie came with her Girl Scout troop to learn pet CPR for their “First Aid to Animals” badge, and she has never stopped doing everything she can for pets in need. Bonnie helps socialize dogs in the shelter, matches pets with their new families, and answers calls on our Pet Peeves Behavior Helpline to assist struggling pet owners. She’s even included Lollypop Farm in her will to ensure care for homeless and abused pets for many years to come.

Animal lovers like Bonnie help pets in need get the second chances they deserve. Learn more about how you can help homeless and abused pets.
