Rizzo speaks to Kiwanis about saving animals

Published 10:32 am Friday, January 27, 2012

On Dec. 28, Lennie Rizzo visited the Tryon Kiwanis Club to talk about his work saving animals. As a volunteer with Foothills Humane Society and regular columnist in the Tryon Daily Bulletin, Lennie and his labor of love for dogs and cats are well known in the community. He said his fundraising for veterinarian bills helps many pets who need medical care stay in their homes with owners who cannot afford the costs. He also seeks loving homes for animals that have been abandoned or mistreated. Kiwanians said his stories tugged at their hearts. Shown above are Chuck Davis and Kathy Woodham with Lennie (right) after his talk. The children’s book “Who Is Melvin Bubble?” will be given to a local school library in his honor.
