207 dogs rescued from a kill shelter

I’m deeply grateful to everyone who has purchased, read, and taken the time to review one of my books. All profits from my books go to help get dogs like Yoki, and siblings Roxy & Rochelle, and Keifer, Asha, Don, Sully, Marko, Chino, Cora, Coco Puff, Toby, Geordie, Faith Condor, Pacino and Dusty (see photos below) out of kill shelters. We’re off to a good start in 2017 with the freedom of 207 dogs. In in 2016, 250 dogs were freed. In 2015, 148 dogs were freed.

AND please for everyone who’s purchased a book could I humbly ask you to write a review when you’ve completed the read.  Amazon promotes and ranks books according to number of reviews in addition to sales. Every voice helps spread the word and that is an energy that can help a dog.

RECENT REVIEWS FOR THE SEVEN YEAR DRESS

AMAZON

on February 22, 2017
Very good book. Characters were interesting and the pace was perfect. The book reminds you that no matter what the circumstances we are still humans and need the support we get from others to help when we are down or scared. Life matters was the theme but it also showed that while life matters it is how you maintain your compassion for others is what makes life matter.

Love historical fiction, especially during the WWII Era. Well written, easy read. I was sucked into the storyline immediately and could not put this book down. The imagery was vivid and I felt I walked alongside Helen and witnessed first hand the love, joy, sadness, sorrow, fright, torment and abuse she endured as she told her story. The book left me wanting to learn more of her story after relocating to the US.

This was a good read. It was from a perspective of a Jewish girl, Helen, whose childhood joined the Hitler Youth Movement to hide his relationship with an “undesirable” person. After Kristallnacht, Helen’s friend risks his life to save her and her brother from Hitler’s persecution of the Jews.

Sully has been rescued. She had a bad skin condition (mange) and wasn’t listed on the shelters website. An angel dog rescuer  who goes through the shelter looking for dogs not listed (to give them a chance) found Sully and rescued this sweet girl.

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.

    Gorgeous results thanks to you Paulette.

  12. Clowie says:

    It’s so good to see the dogs getting new and happy lives.

    • It sure is Clowie. Just finished honoring my pledges for several more, two of which are seniors–one 18 years old. Clearly I’ve been deeply impacted by the incredibly wonderful dog-loving people I am a part of to help the dogs.

      Please give your biped a special wag and cuddle from us and again glad she’s okay from her recent tumble. ❤
