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.

    Paulette, Whenever you post one of these going home picture galleries, I smile, and realize the wonderful work you do, and you see it in each of the smiles, in the eyes, and you know it is in the hearts. Take care, Bill

  9. Womderful adoptions going on there. Those people just made the day for themselves and the pet/s that they were taking home. This is my own quote:

    “A pet will be a light in your eyes and a highlight of your life.” – yvonne daniel

    Let me just say – Kiki’s new dad is quite yummy… Maybe I must go sit in one of those cages to be adopted!! Then again, I might be ready to be put to pasture ๐Ÿ˜‰
    As for the rest – I just love these posts of yours P – they always put a smile on my dial, even if I’m not checking out the biped specimens ๐Ÿ˜‰

  11. Paulette–this scroll for me was a range of emotions. From pure pleasure, to avid curiosity to see the facial expressions of the furry babeez, to sighs of genuine pleasure–I actually said ooOOOh, out loud, ahem, to my kitties, of course–and felt tears in my eyes even before that last heart-string tugging & accurately worded picture.

    It is the greatest thing! I am sharing everywhere! And my book arrived just this morning–when DarDar stops napping on it, I will be reading very soon.

    To say: keep up all your awesomeness is redundant, because you will. ๐Ÿ™‚

    • Hi there! Interestingly it was a range of emotions for me as well. When I was downloading the photos from SPARs facebook page and I read the comment by the one above “family” he mentioned that the man in the photo was being reunited with his dog, despite his having his own problems. Look at how his dogs reacted to seeing his master, his family, made me want to weep. Some brought absolute joy, a couple a deep sincere wish that the furry family member has a good life and stays with their forever family, as part of the family. It’s a prayer I put out to life, that things will work out and there will be less suffering. That last one was a killer but I had to post it or I would have carried it around in my head till I did. Prayers that more find forever homes and it works out for all concerned. Give Dar-Dar a rubbie from me and tell her I hope you read some of the animal parts in the book to her, the good ones. Hope you enjoy!. Have a great weekend. xoxox

    Such adorable animals and a great job on helping find them loving homes!

  14. Deb says:

    Nothing warms my heart more than to see precious animals get their forever homes.
    The last one made makes my eyes tear.

    • I’m with you on both accounts, heartwarming, eye tearing. We rescued an elderly chocolate lab, Eli, a little over two years ago. He was 12 when we took him off the hard cold concrete slab in a kill shelter. We only had him for 10 months but in that time he loved us a lifetime worth of heartwarming memories. He looked just like the dog in that last photo. ๐Ÿ™‚
