Jill Rappaport has been on TODAY for 20 years. She was the entertainment correspondent for the first 17 of those years, but when her beloved dog Jack got bone cancer, her life and career changed forever.
While chronicling Jack's illness on the show, she realized that animal welfare issues were her calling, and so her path changed. In her popular "Bow To Wow" series, shelter dogs get a makeover and a second chance at life, and through her work, she helped to save hundreds of horses that were severly abused. She also keeps TODAY viewers informed about the latest health trends for pets.
Rappaport is also the best selling author of "People We Know, Horses they Love," and has written three others books, including "Jack & Jill: The Miracle Dog with a Happy Tail To Tell," and "500 Cats."
She has just come out with a clothing line for Pendleton for women and pets, which will benefit the Jack and Jill Fund for animal cancer. Most recently Jill and TODAY received the coveted Genesis Award, which is the Oscars of the animal world, for her reporting on animal issues. Rappaport lives on a farm with her four dogs and nine horses, whom she refers to as her "fur angels."
