Girl Next Door: Tour This Animal Philanthropist's Chic Brooklyn Pad

Here at R29, we're suckers when it comes to dogs, cats, or anything on four legs, really. So, Bethany Obrecht, the former artist and brains behind Found My Animal, a company who's mission is to raise awareness for rescue animals, is basically our soul sister. She's dedicated her time to raising awareness (and $$!) for needy animals, and uses her creative skills to create leashes and other accessories for adopted dogs. To top it off, this philanthropist's got style in spades. She took time out of her busy schedule (did we mention she's also a new mom?) to show us around her brownstone digs and fill us in on her amazing work. Click through to check out her interview, marvel at her awesome design skills, and prepare for some serious doggy fever.
