Come to our Facebook EVENT
Animal lovers get together Sept 9-16
Our goal is to sell the two anthology books to animal lovers and make the next $100 donation to an animal shelter, sanctuary or animal hospice.

The Read for Animals project started when I was organizing and rewriting the short stories I have written the past few years. The idea came to me that with a few of my friends we could put together an anthology to help animals, and I asked my animal lover friends if they’d like to participate. They responded, and the stories and poems started flooding in. We published the first book of the Read for Animals series, and the first $100 donation was made to Columbia Greene animal shelter of NY, thanks to animal lovers who purchased the book.
Some stories in the books will make you laugh out loud; others will warm your heart and make you cry. Some stories are true, and the fantasy stories will make you think… what if? Each author and poet brings their unique writing style, to make the book enjoyable. Thank you for helping our furry, scaly and feathered friends in need, by purchasing these book.

My motto had been all my life:
"I never choose an animal to be my pet, they always choose me to be their human."
My neighbors have this adorable pig and guinea hens, but they love to hang out in my backyard. I'd like to think it's my personality they're attracted to, but I guess they love the treats too.
We have three bunnies, they're very shy, but I managed to take a quick picture of one of them. They're funny though, they have no clue that carrots or other vegetables are food. They eat only grass.
Even a vixen knew their baby's will be safe in my backyard. Read their story here:

I'm not a very outdoorsy person and don't really have the "green thumb" my mom had, but I managed to grow some plants outside and in my kitchen window.
I have no clue what is the name of this plant, I call it "good luck pot"
My hubby urged me to throw out these cacti plants that I got from one of my patients, years ago. Well, being just "ugly corner pieces" for years, they surprised us with some beautiful flowers.
The violets love my kitchen window, and my homemade bonsai tree loves it there too. This small needle pine sapling was dug up and chewed on by my neighbor's dog a few years ago, but I managed to save it with some surgical tape and planting it in a soup bowl. I don't know much about pruning bonsai, but it seems to be a healthy and happy midget tree in my window.
