In October 2008, Donna was attacked by a pit bull and nearly died. Understandably,the attack left her extremely fearfulof dogs, but that changed in August 2009. That is when she met Susie, the puppy that was found beaten, burned, and left to die in a Greensboro, North Carolina, park. Susie has helped Donna overcome her fear of dogs and has given Donna new inspirations for life.
Donna is the Founder and Executive Director of the Susie's Hope™nonprofit
organization that educates children and adults about the importance of animal
care and safety. Because of Susie, in 2010 North Carolina citizens pushed animal
legislation forward by strongly encouraging their legislators to vote for Susie's Law. This law allows judges to sentence people convicted of animal abuse in North Carolina to jail time.
This is Susie's story. Susie's Miracle-The Inspiration Behind Susie's Law written by Donna Lawrence and designed by Jennifer Tipton Cappoen is a personal,
powerful message of love, hope, and forgiveness. It's about facing fears headon
and watching them disappear. And it's about getting a second chance at life and
running full speed ahead with it.
