Talking Animal Rescue on CAPS TV in Ventura County (VC Public TV Station)


Ventura County, CA, public TV station brings in lots of local talent from around the county. I was a lucky guest to be asked to come talk about animal rescue and how my book is helping that cause. May 1, 2013


I’m being interviewed by Ken McAlpine, who wrote for National Geographic and has several books out on the market. He’s a great guy and we had a lot of fun chatting.


More fun with Ken talking about tolerance, animal rescue, writing, and writers. What a great time.


The time went by way too fast. Sure does fly when you’re having fun. The atmosphere in the studio was relaxed and comfortable. Very guest friendly.


The Director, Petrina Sharp, is placing a mike on me. You can see the TV monitor in the background and where the curtain backdrop ends. A very casual setting.


Before the shooting, shooting the breeze with Ken while the lovely Director, Petrina, sets the space up.


What a lovely reception greeting from the studio staff, George Alger (Producer), Petrina Sharp (Director) and Ken McAlpine (author interviewer), who all made me feel very welcome. It is scheduled to air in two weeks and might be shown in cities around the U.S. if the syndicated show is picked up. Whether it is or not, today was a whole lot of fun for all involved.

Thank you, CAPS TV, for having me over to your show for this great experience. Let’s hope it helps bring many fury friends to their forever homes.

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.

    How fabulous for you. What a fun day. Keep us up to date on air dates/stations. Even here in Mexico I might get to see it.

    • Yes, it was a lot of fun. What a great group of people over there wanting to help the community and make a difference. They said they’d send me a link with the info. Maybe we’ll be able to see it on the web if not directly on TV. I’ll post the link to the blog here when I get it. Ken McAlpine was such a terrific interviewer and has lots of wonderful things to chat about also. I lucked out today. 🙂 xoxo

    Congratulations. You bear a striking resemblance to a friend of mine 🙂 It was strange looking at you and seeing … Tasha. Looking forward to seeing it.

    • Thanks! The only Tasha’s I know are dogs, lol. But hey if I remind you of or even look like a dog friend of yours that is a compliment I love. I got a good laugh out of that. I even went to your site to see if I could find a photo, Tasha, so you will see a few “likes” there from moi. Oh what fun!

      I’m supposed to get a link for the show and am hoping that it has a net connection (video) to watch. If so, I will post that and we can all watch together. 🙂

  13. This is really good!
    Kuddos to you!

    Reblogged this on tazziesplace and commented:
    The Persecution of Mildred Dunlap is featured at CAPS TV in Ventura.

  16. Just remember us little people when you are even more famous than you are already! 😉

    Congratulations on all the lives you have touched and will touch with your big, beautiful heart! 🙂 🙂

    • I have no idea what a little person is, unless it has fur, lol. My head is so full of junk I doubt it will ever be inflated by any good fortune. Already been slammed down way too many times and am staying low to the ground, learned the good lesson on humility. It scares me. 😉 Seriously though, I really hope that when the freebie is over I can get some funds to the animals. So far it’s been a steady flow but all good things… Lots of love to you and your beautiful ❤ kiddo. 🙂 🙂
