TODAY reported of Emmylou Harris’ new venture,
It’s called Bonaparte’s Retreat named after the beloved dog she rescued just hours before he was to be euthanized. It was then that a bell went off in Emmylou’s huge heart, and she decided to make it her mission to save animals facing the same fate.
The songwriter currently has 29 dogs in her program, many rescued just minutes before euthanization from local animal shelters.
