This next (and last) item comes courtesy of Jay Lombard of Dog Habitat. He writes:

Dog Habitat Rescue is so proud to join with 31 other animal charities nationwide to help launch New York Times bestselling author W. Bruce Cameron’s book  A Dog’s Purpose: A Novel for Humans. Because of the generosity of legendary independent booksellers all over the USA like our very own Word, each of these 31 charities will be getting a full 10% of the cover price for this book which is expected to be a big best seller, and is getting rave reviews from critics and animal advocates everywhere.  Just in this past week, these are the reviews that have come in.

“I loved this book and could not put it down.” –Temple Grandin, New York Times bestselling author Animals Make Us Human

“Marley and Me combined with Tuesdays With Morrie” –Kirkus Reviews

As great as the book is, we at Dog Habitat Rescue are even more proud to join with so many amazing animal advocates in this unique nationwide fundraiser.  Among us people training guide and companion dogs, caring for retired K9 officers (yes, the dogs are called officers!) rescuing abandoned and abused animals, providing essential spaying and neutering services, helping financially troubled families obtain pet food in these tough times, providing pet bereavement counseling, and much more.

We hope that you will consider pre-ordering this book today to benefit Dog Habitat Rescue, which you can so easily do by phone (718-383-0096) or by using the store’s web site or, of course, by visiting the independent bookseller at:

Word Books
126 Franklin Street
Brooklyn, New York 11222

Remember, this offer only lasts until July 1, when the book goes on sale everywhere.  Since world famous animal advocate Dr. Temple Grandin loved this book, and could not put it down, we’re guessing that you will love it too.  If you order today, you can also help us do our work, for no extra cost to you.

It’s a great book, from a great bookstore, for a great cause.  We’re proud to be part of it.

So there have you: two great ways to help our furry friends while keeping it “local”!
