Adopting or saving the life of a pet in need brings great rewards. Often the rescued pets save us, when we thought we were really saving them. In more than a decade of helping rescue cats and dogs, Advocates 4 Animals has saved thousands of lives. In Pawsitive Connection (Rockville Publishing, October 2014) Ritz shares more than a dozen stories of rescue in an e-book you can call all your own. Pawsitive Connection is a collection of true stories demonstrating the mystical ways rescue animals find us when we need them the most.
When Sally met Harry a little black and white stray dog, she didn’t know the impact he would have on her life. Without realizing it, Sally was entering an enormous transition in her own life. Her children were grown and the last one was moving out of the house and on with her own life. Sally was an empty-nester and unsure of her new territory. Longing to nurture, Harry walked into her life at just the right time. Not only that, but Harry saw Sally through a particularly difficult time in her life when the health of her own father suddenly took a turn for the worse. Sally and Harry’s story takes twists and turns that no one could have ever expected. Theirs is one of many stories shared that will leave you in awe.
Pawsitive Connection is filled with one-of-a-kind true stories from nursing home cats helping the elderly, funeral home dogs aiding the grieving to serendipitous rescues that will have your jaw dropping to the ground with amazement. The connecting theme of every short story included in the book is rooted in the astonishing way that animals find their way to us when we need them most- even when we don’t know it yet.
Polly and Portia, two rescued Bengal cats, were saved from cruel circumstances and written off by everyone but their rescue volunteer foster parents. With time, patience and a lot of love the two felines made a full physical, social and emotional recovery – with one moving on in life to become a proud therapy cat. Their story along with many others are sure to bring happy tears to your eyes, and are shared in Pawsitive Connection.
Pets can help us heal, they can change our perspective on a situation or circumstance, they can help us laugh when we need it the most too! The stories come from more than a decade of work in the animal rescue and welfare field and as the work continues, so will the stories. This is Volume I of the series. Volume II will make its debut in 2015 – stay tuned! Pawsitive Connection is available now for Pre-Order on Amazon (Kindle) for just $2.99. A portion of all proceeds are donated to help life-saving animal rescue efforts.
