She is known for being the amazing human companion to a beautiful dog named Squish whose story has gone completely viral through The Dodo, Rachael Ray, and many other features in print, social media, and television.

He lost an eye and lives with a famously crooked jaw, which his fans cannot stop sharing about through photos, videos, and news articles. Some of his fans even share original drawings and other artwork! A lot of animals would not have survived this far in the journey.

151: Laura Schenone, The Dogs Of Avalon Presentation At Book Passage
After adopting an Irish sight hound, her dog Lily, Laura Schenone discovers a remarkable and little-known fight to gain justice for dogs and for all animals. Greyhounds, bred to be the fastest dogs on earth, are beautiful, gentle, and astonishing creatures. Yet for decades, countless numbers of them have been abandoned and destroyed every year once they can no longer compete and win. The Dogs of Avalon introduces us to the strong-willed Marion Fitzgibbon, born in rural Ireland, where animals are valued for their utility. But Fitzgibbon believes suffering is felt by all creatures and champions the cause of strays, baffling those around her—including her family—as she, and a group of local women rescue any animal in need, taking on increasingly risky missions.
