Pet Events Newsletter for June 8 - June 15, 2016
Archive    Member Directory    Media Kit
This week's Pet Events Newsletter is brought to you by
Free Days with George!

Free Days with George is memoir written by Colin Campbell and is
now a New York Times Bestseller!

  The memoir which released in the U.S. Tuesday, May 3, 2016 is the remarkable true story of a 140-pound homeless dog named George and his human Colin, who felt like his life was crumbling around him.  George teaches Colin the real meaning of happiness and hope through their connection which transcends a lot of things we know about loyalty and love.

Since its official launch, Campbell and "George" have been crossing America on a bus tour visiting animal shelters and appearing at sold-out book events.
The tour will end mid-June.

A perfect summer read - you won't be able to put this book down!

Senior sweetheart: 11 year old, Buttercup has had a rough go so far. Adopted from us by a loving local man, who then became ill. Adopted again to what we thought would be her forever home. Unfortunately she was returned to us when the owner lost their home. Buttercup sits patiently and waits for her final home. The one she hopes she will spend her golden years in without interruption. At her age she deserves this. Buttercup is a dignified senior who will give anyone lots of joy!
