Many animal books are inextricably tied to rescue organizations or projects. Every time Books for Animal Lovers purchases copies of certain titles from publishers, a portion of the sale goes to those organizations. And every time a customer purchases a copy from us, we also make a donation, thus doubling the benefits.
Below are just a sampling of books that give back. For more organizations, go to our About Us section and see a list: http://booksforanimallovers.com/content/4-about-us.
- Stephen McGarva (RESCUE AT DEAD DOG BEACH) has given voice and inspiration to many rescue organizations in Puerto Rico, including www.Allsatorescue.org. Their work is turning the tide on a heartbreaking situation.
- The beagle is the most-often used breed in cosmetic and household product testing, but the Beagles Freedom Project helps place those lucky ones who are released from their imprisonment. Author Teresa Rhyne—THEDOG LIVED (AND SO DID I) and THE DOGS WERE RESCUED (AND SO WAS I)—has donated time, money, and a lot of heart to this organization. See their site at www.beaglefreedomproject.org.
- A STREET CAT NAMED BOB, and THE WORLD ACCORDING TO BOB author, James Bowen, is working to create cat cafés throughout London. His fundraiser can be found at https://www.indiegogo.com/projects/bob-s-world-cat-cafe-fundraiser.
- Jo Anne Normile (SAVING BABY) created two hugely successful horse rescue organizations: CANTER, the first organization to take racehorses from the track to safe havens, and Saving Baby Equine Charity (www.savingbaby.org). She’s on the board of other equine charities as well.
All animal lovers can contribute regularly to the Humane Society of the US, the ASPCA and state chapters, as well as regional and local rescue and adoption organizations. There are volunteer opportunities at every turn, either through day-to-day operations, providing foster care, or participating in political events.
