UPDATE ON DAKOTA: (he’s on the left with new sister Lucy on the right) this from his new family: “Dear SPARC, It has only been one week since we adopted Dakota and it has been a GREAT week. He fits in perfectly with our family, especially our other chocolate lab, Lucy. They go on walks together every day. We started both of them in dog obedience training, and he is responding to clicker training beautifully. We feel so blessed that Dakota came into our lives.
Thank you to everyone who took such good care of Dakota while he was at the shelter.”


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.

    Being the proud mom of a rescued cat, I can only do a happy dance myself for these great animals going to loving homes. It is such an amazing thing that happens between the animal and the future family member. All deserve love and I am so grateful that there are those who will get it, both the animal and rescuer. I know my boy truly rescued me!

  5. This is so lovely to see 🙂

    Paulette, It’s great to see what good work the Center is doing finding homes for our furry friends. Take care, Bill

  7. I pray all the new homes and families will be the answered prayer for these wonderful gifts from God. Dakato and Lucy look so content and happy. Makes my heart happy.
    I have taken in strays for the better part of 20 years and for all those strays and things I provided to make their health as good as possible, I rarely advertized for homes for them. People were referred to me from people who had gotten pets from me. It was truly amazing how God opens doors to these new lives for His creations. I called my advocacy group, ” Recyled Cats.”
    You are such a kind hearted person.
    God bless you

  8. What happy faces!!!!! Fuzzy and not so fuzzy faces alike. 🙂

  11. Sage says:

    This definitely put a smile on my face!

  12. Glad to hear it because you’ve put a smile on our faces with all your mud play and today resting in your pool. You’re too much, Sage. And, now some of our fury cousins are going to get a chance to find their own mud and water. wag wag, BOL, Max & Bella (& bipped typist). 🙂

    All round good news!!!

  15. Misaki says:

    That’s such great news!

  16. This warms my heart and makes me smile all over. 🙂

  17. Love to hear good people are adopting these animals. I have always gone to the SPCA for all our cats. They seem to know they have been rescued, don’t they?

    • Tess, I think they know much more than that, more than I can ever envision from a place that isn’t weighed down with a lot of thinking. Anyone who says an animal doesn’t have emotions… and the rescue thing, saving a life, what a great experience for all. The relief on all the dogs we’ve ever pulled out of cages on death row says it all, from depression to happiness in seconds. They’re the best teachers. The best friends. The best… 🙂
