On Saturday, August 14, 2021 ARF held the Bow Wow Meow Ball @home and presented Patsy Topping with a Lifetime Achievement Award for her rescue and transport work over the years in South Carolina.

When Patsy Topping moved from her family’s Swan Creek Horse Farm in Bridgehampton to South Carolina, she encountered a problem not seen in the Hamptons for years – unaltered dogs producing unwanted puppies, year after year. Patsy began working with ARF to transport and rescue abandoned dogs. Thousands of dogs owe their lives to Patsy, and they have filled thousands of homes with unlimited love.

Patsy sadly passed away in March 2022.
