She is also the founder of Recycled Pets are Best, a non-profit organization to help animals needing adoption.
Byrne has written two books based on her involvement in helping abandoned, abused and neglected animals. Following in the footsteps of “Recycled Pets are Best,” Byrne’s second book, “Recycled Pets are Best 2,” continues to tell stories of the difference one person can make in the lives of unwanted pets.
She also encourages pet adoptions through shelters and rescue groups, and discusses the importance of spay and neuter and making sure pets have the proper identification.
Byrne is a native of Webster County and for over 40 years has been involved in helping animals find forever homes. She has an MBA in aviation, however, she left FedEx Express in 2006 to follow her passion in writing and photography.
Byrne and her husband, Reb, live in Horn Lake but are building a house in Webster County and hope to be moving back soon.
