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.

    SPARC has done a remarkable job of adopting out furry (& rescuing feathery) friends. πŸ™‚

  3. This is the most heartwarming news I’ve heard so far this year. Wonderful pictures too. πŸ˜€

  4. Reblogged this on writerchristophfischer and commented:
    Happy dogs – a feel good post!

  5. How great these adoptions and lots of them too. Marvelous work by the individuals that made it all happen. I know you had a hand in the wonderful events.

    The dog that was lost for 5 mo. So wonderful that he was lucky to be kept alive. That would make a nice story here so that people would know how it all came about.

    Regards, yvonne

    Sometimes I’m a little slow on the uptake. I just realized that the initials of your animal rescue centre reads SPARC, while it says “spark” as well. What a descriptive title for the kind and wonderful service you continue to provide our fellow creatures.

  7. What a glorious roll call of deliciousness – well done everyone!
