Meet Mildred and the Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center

Meet puppy Mildred and the Santa Paula Animal Shelter.Thank you Christoph for your support.


Many of you have heard me recommending “The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap” by Paulette Mahurin. I was so impressed by the book that as a writer I did not want to recommend it for anything else than the book and the quality of the writing itself.

It is time however to emphasise how the author uses all of her energy to promote the book on behalf of a worthy cause: All proceeds of the book go to the Santa Paula Animal Rescue Center. I was so impressed by her selfless kindness that I named my first born Labradoodle Puppy after the main character, Mildred – a symbol of kindness and tolerance.

About The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap

The year 1895 was filled with memorable historical events: the Dreyfus Affair divided France; Booker T. Washington gave his Atlanta address; Richard Olney, United States Secretary of State, expanded the effects of the Monroe Doctrine in settling a boundary dispute between the United Kingdom and Venezuela; and Oscar Wilde was tried and convicted for "gross indecency" under Britian's recently passed law that made sex between males a criminal offense. When the news of Wilde's conviction went out over telegraphs worldwide, it threw a small Nevada town into chaos. This is the story of what happened when the lives of its citizens were impacted by the news of Oscar Wildes' imprisonment. It is chronicle of hatred and prejudice with all its unintended and devastating consequences, and how love and friendship bring strength and healing. Paulette Mahurin, the author, is a Nurse Practitioner who lives in Ojai, California with her husband Terry and their two dogs--- Max and Bella. She practices women's health in a rural clinic and writes in her spare time. All profits from her book are going to animal rescue, Santa Paula Animal Shelter, the first and only no-kill shelter in Ventura County, CA, where she lives. (see links below on Ventura County Star Article & Shelter) To find out more please go the The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap on facebook or Amazon or e-mail us at the gavatar addresses. Thank you.
