THE NOT SO SECRET LIVES OF PETS
WHO WE ARE
We are Ryan and Lovelia Horn, and we’re crazy about rescuing dogs. For over five years, we’ve welcomed a shelter dog into our home as temporary fosters. In fact, we jokingly call our home the Horn Doggy Hotel. Each little guest gets a taste of life as a family pet, and a chance to decompress from the noisy shelter environment. Your family can be a lonely pup’s starter family too. Dogs are such beautiful, grateful creatures. No matter how much abuse they’ve suffered in their previous lives, they forgive. They deserve a home of their own. As animal rescuers, we work with animal advocates in the Southern Illinois area to help stop animal overpopulation and shed a spotlight on rampant animal abuse.
