From author Joanne Wannan:

I have recently published a book called NEW LIVES: Stories of Rescued Dogs Helping, Healing and Giving Hope. It tells of 18 dogs that were rescued from shelters and the streets, who are now working in animal therapy and as service dogs. The book reflects my passion for shelter animals, and my firm belief that all animals deserve respect and are worthy of a second chance.

The book is available on Amazon.com, as well as on my website: www.3BlackDogs.org

We are in the process of doing an official “launch” for NEW LIVES, and during the month of April, a total of 30% of the profits from the sale of the book will be donated to animal rescues.

However, we have run into a bit of a snag! Because of the economic crisis, the book sales are *slow*. So, unfortunately, the donation to animal rescue may not be as great as we had hoped!

Because of this, I am writing to everyone I know, asking if they could lend a “paw” to help promote the book. It will only take a few minutes of your time (I promise!) but could make a world of difference to animals in need.

To help spread the word, all you need to do cut and paste the email below and send it to your family and friends, and anyone else you can think of!

I wanted to tell you about a new book that I think you would enjoy. The book is called New Lives: Stories of Rescued Dogs Helping, Healing and Giving Hope. It’s a book that will make you laugh and cry, but more importantly it’s a book that will inspire and encourage you to help give an animal a second chance and a new life.

During the month of April, a total of 30% of the profits from the sale of the book will be donated to animal rescues. What a great time to buy the book – either for yourself, or as gifts for your animal-loving friends. Not only is it a “great read,” but you will feel good knowing you are helping to give more animals a second chance.

The book is available on Amazon.com . You can check out here: http://bit.ly/bpSQwf

Thank you, on behalf of homeless animals everywhere.

*About the Book*

NEW LIVES: Stories of Rescued Dogs Helping, Healing and Giving Hope, by Joanne Wannan, presents of stories of hope and inspiration – where the “underdog” really does triumph in the end! The heroes in the book are an unlikely assortment of dogs who were rescued from shelters and the streets. They have gone on to love, serve, and in some cases save the lives of the compassionate individuals welcomed these abandoned canines into their hearts and lives.

The book tells of the amazing ways these rescued dogs are working as animal therapists or as service dogs, and how lives – both human and canine – are forever changed. One is Leo, a pit bull rescued from Michael Vick’s dog fighting operation, who now visits patients in a chemotherapy ward, and acts as an ambassador for all dogs at a facility for juvenile delinquents.Another is an abandoned canine who went on to become a service dog for a hearing impaired gentleman. Not only does Beans alert her owner to the doorbell and
telephone - she actually saved his life by waking him up and alerting him to a fire!

The foreword is written by Dr. Marty Becker, resident veterinarian on Good Morning America, and co-author of Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul. Cover endorsements are from the ASPCA and the Humane Society. This book is a testament to the powerful bond between humans and dogs, and affirms the belief that it is never to late for miracles.
