Lyn is a life-long animal lover. She got involved in rescue with a vision to create a safe haven for dogs transitioning from shelters to adoptive families when foster families are not an option as well as a place for educational events and volunteers. Thus, Muddy Paws Farm was born. She also has a soft spot for older and hard-to-place dogs with disabilities. She fostered and successfully placed a number of blind and deaf dogs. Lyn has two grown children, each with rescue dogs of their own. Lyn joined the Board in 2009.
