A Message from Lisa LaFontaine, CEO & President, Washington Humane Society - Your Help is Needed to Honor, Gwen, the Dog of a Lifetime


Friends and Family - I have a favor to ask of you. This year, I am raising money for the DC Walk for Animals in honor of the incomparable Gwen. She is my sidekick, and an unsung hero in the humane world. Gwen has been a foster mother to literally hundreds of animals. She has healed them all - the sick, the injured, the frightened, the traumatized. The hundreds of people who have one of our former fosters have a little Gwen love in their lives.

Gwen sleeps most of the time now. She wears diapers, she cannot hear at all, and she can barely see. We carry her up the stairs. She has been attending animal walks for fifteen years, and last year she led the entire way. This time I'll bring her in a wagon because she won't be able to walk the route.

She will be grateful to be there, just as I will be grateful for any gift you can give to honor the dog of a lifetime. It would do my heart good if you would join me in thanking her in a big way by giving generously.

Lisa (and Gwen)
