Emmylou Harris Establishes Bonaparte’s Retreat to Support Nashville Animals

In 2004 when Emmylou Harris’s beloved road dog Bonaparte passed away, she knew she needed to do something in his honor to give back to the community. Harris established Bonaparte’s Retreat as a non-profit organization with the mission of rescuing shelter dogs and making sure they find good homes.

Harris’s heart for supporting those with no voice doesn’t stop at animals. Harris gives her time, talent, and money to support The Lantern Tour: A Concerts for Migrant and Refugee Families. The Lantern Tour is an annual concert series that benefits the Women’s Refugee Commission and brings together art and advocacy to stand with migrant and refugee women, children, and youth worldwide.
