Denise Bash is the founder of a nonprofit animal rescue organization called Animal Lifeline, which helps animals by helping the people who want to help animals.

“It’s a passion to them, but it’s hard to get things done.  So what we do is to try to network people together so that everyone is more successful — especially the animals.”

Bash also finds foster homes for the pets of abused women until their situations improve.  She operates a thrift shop in Warrington (Bucks County), Pa., and all of the proceeds from the shop go to homeless animals.

“There’s an amazing amount of stuff that people are done dusting, wearing, listening to, whatever, that can turn into a life-saving thing.”
