the Author

I am an artist, author, and animal advocate. In addition to Up On The Woof, I am the author of Born Without a Tail, and Circling the Waggins: How 5 Misfit Dogs Saved Me from Bewilderness, two true-life chronicles of the challenges and joy of  animal rescue and living with an ever-changing house full of pets. I’ve written about advocacy in How to Change the World in 30 Seconds: a Web Warrior’s Guide to Animal Advocacy Online. which outlines practical steps for advocating for shelter animals in as little as 30 seconds per day, and Finding Fido, which is a guide for people who are looking for a lost pet.
My partner and I have been involved in companion animal rescue since 1986, sometimes sheltering as many as sixteen animals at a time in our home. Currently, we share our lives with five misfit dogs.

    I’m so glad the world has people like you in it.
    It’s such a better place for it. 🙂
    I would love to share my story of my best friend in the world when I was a kid. His name was SHAG and his was a story that should be shared! His story began when I was 10 and really had no beginning or end, only a middle.
    He died when I was a kid but I now have Tedd-E in my life who may very well be the reincarnation of Shag.Its so incredible how much alike they are!
    To those who think they have lost a beloved pet I say they are not lost. They are simply waiting in Heaven for the day they can be reunited with their beloved friends.

    I would love to talk to you about your work. I have a small following of a few hundred pet parents who work with me and part of our profits goes to animal rescue. Let us now when your new book is available.
    Thanks

    I very much enjoyed reading your blog. I own and operate a small show/breeding/rescue kennel, and have recently started Kids for K9’s, a group of volunteers who meet monthly to make things to sell in order to raise money for our free spay/neuter program. After having been a foster mom with 2 local rescue groups for several years, it became increasingly apparent to me, that we needed to be more proactive instead of reactive, and prevent all these unwanted litters of puppies and kittens in the first place. We have developed our own line of homemade dog treats and we also sell homemade dog coats, pajamas, beds ,etc.. as well as things the children have made, such as candle holders, bird feeders and anything else that our crafty minds can think up. We would love any info that you feel might help us in our endeavor to raise funds for this cause. Thanks and God Bless.

    I looked for a way to email you, since I’m unsure if this comment will reach you, but couldn’t find one. Just wanted to say that for the past year, I’ve been doing exactly what you describe in your post here: https://thewoof.wordpress.com/2010/09/26/pets-in-danger-on-craigslist/ , and in fact, I link to that very post in the form email I send out as I flag the ads. I also have a line in the email urging them to pass the information on. Wanted you to know that your advocacy has, and will, spread!
