Here’s a picture of me puppy-wrangling the on-air talent, Roscoe, in the dressing room. He thought my hair was the best toy, lol. (Spoiler Alert: It looks like Roscoe has since found his forever home after filming)

🐾 Supporting Our Furry Friends – A Message from Your Favorite Romance Author

Hey there, book lovers!

Last weekend, I had the opportunity to volunteer as a production assistant for a documentary vignette produced and directed by my husband, John, for Probohno, Anita and Abandoned to Adored of Marshall County, Mississippi. Please go like, love, watch the documentary vignette, and support the new project here!!I greatly admire what Anita and her shelter partner do on a daily basis.

As a romance author, I know the power of love, compassion, and second chances. Beyond the realms of fiction, there’s a real-world narrative that often goes overlooked – the stories of animals in need of care and kindness. Today, I want to share with you something close to my heart: supporting our local animal shelters.

Our local shelters are filled with wagging tails and gentle purrs longing for a forever home. These shelters are more than just brick and mortar; they are sanctuaries of hope for our furry friends. They offer a safe haven, medical attention, nourishment, and most importantly, love to animals who have faced abandonment or cruelty. By standing with these shelters, we’re giving these beautiful souls a chance at a brighter tomorrow filled with warmth and affection.

By donating your time, money, or resources, you’re not only helping animals in need but also spreading love in its purest form. Every contribution, no matter how big or small, makes a difference.

Speaking from personal experience, volunteering at an animal shelter can be incredibly rewarding. From walking dogs to cuddling kittens, every moment spent with these animals is filled with gratitude and unconditional love.

If you find yourself deeply touched by the animals’ stories and want to do more, consider becoming a temporary foster parent. Fostering is a beautiful way to provide a safe and loving environment for an animal while they await their forever home. It’s a temporary commitment that can make a lasting impact on both the animal’s life and your own.

Whether it’s offering a warm bed for a senior dog or socializing shy kittens, fostering allows you to be part of their journey toward finding happiness and security. The bond that forms during fostering is truly special and can bring immense joy to your life as well. And if you do, be sure to share pictures in the Author FB group! We want to see!!

Our local animal shelters aren’t just facilities; they are pillars of our communities that extend care and education far beyond their walls. They organize outreach programs, educational campaigns, and community events that promote responsible pet ownership and cultivate empathy toward all living beings. By supporting these endeavors, we contribute to building a kinder and more nurturing society for both humans and animals.

So, let’s join paws (or hands) and make this world a better place for all creatures, big and small.

With heartfelt gratitude & thank you for listening,

How You Can Help!

As a romance author, my heart is filled with stories of love, compassion, and second chances. But beyond the pages of my novels lies a real-world narrative that tugs at my heartstrings – the plight of countless animals in need of care and shelter. Today, I want to talk about an issue that is close to my heart: supporting local animal shelters.

The Love Connection:
Local animal shelters are more than just buildings with cages; they are havens of hope for animals in distress. These shelters provide a temporary home, medical care, nourishment, and most importantly, love to animals who have been abandoned or mistreated. By supporting these shelters, we are not just providing for basic needs; we are giving these animals a chance at a new life filled with love and compassion.

The Power of Adoption:
One of the most impactful ways to support animal shelters is through adoption. When you adopt a pet from a shelter, you are not just gaining a furry companion; you are saving a life. Every adoption opens up space in the shelter for another animal in need and helps reduce overcrowding – a serious issue that many shelters face. Furthermore, adopted pets often form strong bonds with their owners and become cherished members of their families.

Community Impact:
Local animal shelters play a crucial role in our communities beyond caring for animals. They often run outreach programs, educational initiatives, and community events that promote responsible pet ownership and kindness towards animals. By supporting these initiatives, we can help build a more compassionate society where both humans and animals thrive together.

Volunteerism and Donations:
If adoption isn’t feasible for you at the moment, there are still many ways to support local animal shelters. Volunteering your time can make a world of difference – from walking dogs to socializing cats or assisting with administrative tasks. Additionally, donations in the form of money, food, blankets, or toys can go a long way in ensuring that shelters have the resources they need to care for their furry residents. Also, please consider becoming a foster. You can commit as little as a week or two in some cases.

Spreading Awareness:
Another impactful way to support local animal shelters is by spreading awareness about their work within your community or on social media platforms like Instagram. By sharing stories of successful adoptions or fundraising events happening at local shelters, you can inspire others to get involved and make a difference in the lives of homeless animals.

A Message from the Heart:
To me, supporting local animal shelters isn’t just about charity; it’s about extending kindness and compassion to our fellow beings who may not have a voice but certainly have feelings as deep as ours. As someone who believes in love stories both on paper and off it, I urge you to consider how you can contribute to this tale of hope and transformation by supporting your local animal shelter today.

When we support local animal shelters, we aren’t just helping animals – we’re fostering empathy, creating stronger communities, and spreading love in its purest form. So let’s come together across borders big or small and make a difference in the lives of those who bring us so much joy – our beloved furry friends.

Remember: Every paw print counts in this beautiful journey called life.

Are you ready to make an impact? Reach out to your nearest animal shelter today to find out how you can support their cause through adoption, volunteering or donations! Together, we can write tales of rescue, recovery, and redemption.
