Bonnie-Jill Laflin helps troops with PTSD with pet project

Bonnie-Jill Laflin is a passionate person. She started out as a cheerleader in the NBA and NFL and here with the short-lived XFL. She went on to become a broadcaster, the first woman scout ever in the NBA, and was even a general manager for the LA Defenders Of The Developmental League.

She does a lot of charity work in support of U.S. troops, but she is perhaps most passionate about animal rights - and she is ready to talk about all of that.

Bonnie Jill visits Good Day LA to chat about her nonprofit charity Hounds & Heroes, which specializes in rescuing dogs from shelters to train them as service dogs and therapy pets for veterans suffering from PTSD.

Bonnie-Jill recently adopted a rescue dog from China, saving him from the dog meat trade—she is on a mission to save more puppies in China and her pair them up with veterans.
