Lost and Found

Calling all animal lovers! My local animal shelter is in dire straights. They need donations – as little as thirty-three cents a day on a monthly basis. That’s $10 a month. As an ex-employee of the animal shelter – which BTW is a ‘no kill’ shelter – I know the work and cost involved in taking care of lost, abandoned or surrendered cats and dogs, plus paying a handful of dedicated employees. A lot of elbow grease, kindness and generosity go a long way for a furry friend.

I left the animal shelter to pursue my writing career. The payoff from leaving my job was a novel. The book – Lost and Found – is part of my teen psychic mystery series ‘Mysterious Tales from Fairy Falls’. It’s about a fifteen-year-old girl named Meagan Walsh, an animal communicator, who hasn’t used this gift since she was a little girl. She is forced to serve community hours at the local animal in Fairy Falls where her aunt works. There, an old calico cat named Whiskey befriends Meagan, and gets her to open up, listen and use her voice to talk to the shelter animals. The Fairy Falls Animal Shelter is in danger of closing down because there are not enough funds to support it. Sound familiar?
I urge any of my readers, followers or anybody that passes by this blog to visit the Animal Shelter for Huntsville website and see how you can help. ANYTHING you choose to do will be of great assistance, even going on your Facebook page or Twitter about the animal shelter will bring awareness to others. And if you’ve got a local animal shelter in your area, I hope that you will support it any way you can, even as a volunteer to walk the dogs or socialize with the cats.

Remember: “An animal’s eyes have the power to speak a great language.” – Martin Buber.
