Guest: Val Silver lives in northern New York with her husband and Bichon/Shi Tzu mix, Teddy. She is a lifelong animal lover and advocate with a heart for animals and humans in need of compassion and healing. She wrote Rescue Me, her first book, as a fundraiser for homeless dogs, to raise awareness of their plight and needs, and to show what wonderful companions these dogs make when given a chance. Val is a reading teacher, a healer, and a holistic wellness educator. She believes that it takes education, positive action and compassion to create healing and better lives for all creatures-animal and human. Val shares her knowledge and insights on her websites and facebook pages, in on-line groups, in her monthly Bellesprit magazine column, and in the media.
About Rescue Me:
Rescue Me will touch your soul with twelve inspirational accounts of ten dog lovers who rescued the dogs who ultimately rescued them. Read (and listen to) true tales of extraordinary commitment, physical and emotional healing, faith in the midst of challenges, twists of fate, second chances, and the magical joy that comes from the bond of unconditional love and acceptance between humans and their dogs.
The dog adoption stories in Rescue Me are written for the love of dogs in rescue and shelters, and for the devoted people who save them in little and big ways. It is written to raise funds to help them, to raise sensitivity to their plight and their need, and to celebrate all they have to offer when given a chance.
Donations from Rescue Me royalties help shelters and rescues meet expenses and fund projects designed to make life better for the animals in their care. The accompanying webpage includes a list of sponsored organizations, home videos, photographs, bonus audio interviews with three of our authors, and more.
