Foundation Thanks Lynn Johnston

Lynn Johnston, artist and cartoonist, is a Canadian icon. Her syndicated comic strip, For Better or For Worse® which chronicles the life of the Patterson family, has appearing in over 2,000 newspapers worldwide.

In 2001, Lynn Johnston generously loaned one of her most beloved characters, Farley the English Sheepdog, to the Foundation. The name of the Foundation pays homage to Farley, who died in the comic strip while saving April Patterson from drowning when she fell into a river. Farley helps to promote awareness of the Foundation, making it possible for thousands of low income pet owners to continue the relationship with the pets that mean the world to them.

To learn more about Lynn Johnston and For Better or For Worse®, visit the official web site for the comic strip at www.fborfw.com.
