Letting the dogs out

Bless the kind hearts that help the vulnerable and voiceless.

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.

  5. What a wonderful world of people and beagles.

  6. Paullette this is wonderful of you to put this on your blog. I saw this or one similar some place or maybe I read about this rescue group who do these wonderful deeds.

    My hope is that this rescue group can keep pulling beagles from the labs. It surely makes one cry to look at those sad eyes and then to see the quick response to human kindness and love. A marvelous post.

  7. What wonderful people to help these dogs. And how trusting and forgiving they are – amazing animals, they never cease to amaze me. Thank you for sharing such a lovely story.

  8. The video made me cry. I am so happy they have been set free. Bless everyone involved and getting those sweeties. They are all so cute! I wish every dog that is kept in cages like they were could be set free. They don’t deserve to not be as a dog is meant to be. Hugs

    It’s lovely to see these dogs getting a new life, but it breaks my heart to think of all the animals still in labs.

    A truly inspirational piece P.
    Humans. What can I say – we have so much power and apparently so little will to do good with it.
    With a few exceptions…
