In honor of National Read Across America Day, we'd like to offer up the #1 selection on our Recommended Reading List: Rescued.
Ryker taught me all his best moves.
Of course, I may have improved upon them somewhat...
but I digress.
The most important thing about this book, though, is who it helps.
You see, a portion of Rescued's sales go to the shelters paw-picked by each author.
There are 12 stories. And 12 months in a year.
And each author has their own month where sales are directed to their shelter of choice.
Our shelter is Great Plains SPCA. Our month begins now.
Please consider buying a copy for yourself! Not only will you be able to wrap your paws around an anthology featuring the rescue stories of 12 unique cats, you'll be helping out a shelter that desperately needs it.
Last year, Great Plains - whose capacity is 175 cats - reached a population of almost 800 within a matter of months. This extreme overpopulation threatened not only their No Kill status, but their very existence as well. You can read all about their story here.
They're heading into kitten season again, with a population already at 155. Any donation, large or small, will help. Purchasing a copy of Rescued is one way to do this.
And when buying from us, you'll also receive a pawtographed bookplate with Ryker's actual, very own signature from the Rainbow Bridge.
This pawprint was kindly taken by the emergency clinic,
as a keepsake for us to remember him by.
We've made it into a bookplate, personalized just for you.
(and it's working now, too - woot!)
One easy click, and your very own Pawtographed copy will be on its way to you!
The Best Way to Spend
Read Across America Day?
At your local shelter. The next time you volunteer, take a book along, too.
One of the best things you can to to help shelter cats is to spend time with them, and creating a lap for them to sit on is a great way to help provide them with much-needed exposure to humans.
Reading is a mostly quiet exercise, without a lot of scary noises or fast movement that might unsettle a skittish cat or overstimulate an energetic one. It's what we call cat enrichment, and it truly does help shelter cats become more adoptable.

May we recommend Rescued as the ideal book for this?
On behalf of all shelter cats everywhere who will benefit from this - thank you.
