|My granddaughter Kayla and her dog Belle!|
- There are 78.2 million owned dogs in the U.S.
- 39% of U.S. households own at least one dog.
but did you know this sad statistic?
- Ten million animals are euthanized in shelters each year.
There are many no-kill shelters that are struggling to stay open. The costs to keep and care for unwanted animals is huge. Food, shelter, healthcare and training all put a substantial drain on rescue facilities that depend on donations.
There are many things that people can do to help. Project Madison is an effort to make a difference.
Meet Madison Morgan, a spunky eleven-year-old, who learns she has a special gift that leads her to make a daring animal rescue.
This summer her adventures will be published in my MG novel which, in turn I hope will create awareness and financial support for participating shelters and rescue operations.
Stay tuned for more details. Be sure to check the Project Madison tab for updates and important information about how you can get involved.
