Tony La Russa
If you read the paper or listen to the radio, or watch a sports cast on television you know that Tony La Russa is retiring - from baseball. You can read all about his impressive career. Less mentioned is his lifetime of advocacy for homeless animals. His passion was forged into commitment 30 years ago when a feral cat wandered onto the field during an Oakland A's home game. The story is told on the web pages of "Dog Time". La Russa and his wife founded the Animal Rescue Foundation to be sure that such creatures could have a safe forever-home. Fortunately for the countless animals who have been rescued by Animal Rescue, he will carry on in their behalf.
