Amid the devastation of the last several years of the worst fires in California history, LHSHR has been a first-responder, working with EVAC teams to pull animals from the raging infernos and getting them to safety.
1999 - Betsy purchases a "sound" horse for her daughter out of the newspaper, and discovers the animal has been horribly abused. // Betsy connects with North Bay Horse Rescue and Welfare about similar cases, and ends up as the group's Vice President.
Seeing the incredible need for animal rescue, Betsy leases 20 acres in Sonoma County home, and creates a sanctuary. In 2004, she finds a lovely property with a house, 4 acres and a 1947 barn, and LHSHR has a forever home.
