Read Humane!


We’re a week into May now, and that means that the second Read Humane® program is well underway! 

My third Pet Rescue Mystery HOUNDS ABOUND was chosen as part of Read Humane this year.  Last year, the first Pet Rescue Mystery, BEAGLEMANIA, was part of the first Read Humane program. 

I couldn’t be prouder to be one of the participants... again!

Read Humane was started by the Penguin Group USA to celebrate the Humane Association of the United States, both by reprinting some of the books involving animals that it published and putting a special Read Humane symbol on them, as well as making a substantial donation to the HSUS to help support its Animal Rescue Team.  The Animal Rescue Team works with law enforcement to investigate situations of animal cruelty and abuse.

How about you--do you Read Humane?  Do you despise animal abuse and support special care of needy creatures?  I do!

I have just recently been reading about Read Humane. What a great idea. Congratulations on having your books chosen. All the animals I have or had in the past are rescue animals of some sort.

How wonderful! I wish my publisher was doing this as I have a rescue theme in my books and have a rescue doxie and brother and sister kitties. Good for you and good for the animals!

Rescue animals in books and real life are wonderful, Chrystle! Wallender is a cutie.
