Emmylou Harris Rocks for Shelters
Singer help spread the word that "Shelters Rock!"
Harris gives her time and support to help animals and shelters. In fact, she has her own rescue/fostering operation, Bonaparte's retreat.
"I had this dog named Bonaparte who I adopted in '92. He became my road dog—he went everywhere with me. When I lost him in 2002, I felt I'd lost my best friend, and I didn't think I'd get another dog. But I started thinking that maybe I could foster some dogs. That way I'd be helping dogs, to honor the memory of my pal."
Emmylou Harris' latest album is "All I Intended to Be." Find out more at www.emmylouharris.com.
