Lorrie Sullenberger's Causes
As an avid dog lover, Lorrie has been a Guide Dogs for the Blind volunteer for over 20 years. She first became involved with the organization as a way to give back to the community, but it has become much more than that for Lorrie. In an effort to keep the breeding dogs from living out their lives in a kennel, Guide Dogs places these dogs with volunteer families with what are known as Breeder Custodians. In 2000 they became "custodians" to Lorrie's beloved Twinkle, an adorable and energetic yellow lab.
Lorrie along with her husband Sully were recently honored with The Hope Award for their decades long work with newborn kittens with ARF. Lorrie has long been a firm believer that the human/animal bond has beneficial benefits for everyone involved, and so have always been strong supporters of her local animal shelters.
