Pet Rescue

I loved writing about pet rescue because I feel strongly about it.

I used to volunteer at Pet Orphans of Southern California and became a dog adoption counselor. A really wonderful organization!

Here are some of the pet rescue organizations I contacted or otherwise found during my research for my Pet Rescue mystery series.  Check them out--and consider adopting from them or donating to them!

Also, if you would like to suggest other organizations for me to add, please let me know.  I sometimes donate autographed books for them to raffle off for cash donations and would consider other fundraising events.

Arfriend Wonderful resource guide for people and pets http://www.arfriend.org
Best Friends Excellent organization known nationally http://www.bestfriends.org
Four Legged Friends Foundation Promotes pet-human bond and helps with vet care where financial assistance needed http://www.flff.org
Glendale Humane Society I have volunteered there. Great group! http://www.glendalehumane.org
Humane Society of the United States Their Animal Rescue Team was the beneficiary of Penguin Group (USA)'s donation for the Read Humane program. http://www.humanesociety.org/
