What exactly is this book? It’s the brainchild of author Erika M. Szabo and she’s here to tell you herself:
Anthology by authors, poets, artists and animals lovers to benefit animals in need.
Proceeds from book sales will be donated to animal shelters.
All my pets were either adopted from shelters, or they found us. We live in the Catskill Mountains and unfortunately the “summer people” who rent a home or own one as summer home, often bring puppies and kittens with them for the entertainment for their kids for the summer. When autumn comes, they move back to the cities where pets are a nuisance or not allowed in the apartment building. Some of them just close the door behind them and leave the animals outside to fend for themselves. Since we moved to the country side from the Bronx over 20 years ago, eight cats and three dogs found us and stayed with us until they had to go to animal heaven I want to help animals in need, any way I can. So being a writer, I thought that I could use my God given talent of storytelling to help struggling animal shelters. Our furry, feathered and scaly friends who are not adopted from shelters need our help to survive; they depend on us for food, shelter and loving homes. I wrote a few funny and true stories about my pets, fox pups that grew up in my backyard. I invited a few author friends to join me in this project to publish a book, Read for Animals and donate the money collected from the sales after publishing fees to different animal shelters every three months.
