Helen Pitts

Helen Pitts and her 18-year-old Yorkie, Bruno. 

Helen Pitts spent her marketing career working in cosmetics. After the death of her beloved dog, Daisy, she became involved in finding lost pets and reuniting them with their owners. While working to find a lost dog, she encountered “It’s Always Sunny In Philadelphia” stars Rob McElhenney and Kaitlin Olson who had recovered the dog. That story was covered by multiple news outlets, but it was not Pitts’ first brush with fame. In 1994, when Howard Stern answered a call on air from a man who was prepared to jump off the George Washington Bridge, Pitts was the motorist who got out of her car and hugged the would-be jumper until more help could arrive.
