Gretchen Wyler (Performer) | Playbill

Gretchen Wyler


Ms. Wyler also crusaded for animal rights. Her passion for animals began in 1966, the Times reports, after she witnessed the harsh conditions at a New York shelter. In fact, Wyler would manage that shelter for ten years, and in 1991 she formed The Ark Trust, which a decade later, would join forces with the Humane Society. She was vice president of the Humane Society in Hollywood until last year.
