WELLBEING

If you are an animal lover, you know that people benefit from relationships with their animal companions. Many studies have shown that pets improve their owners’ heart health, reduce stress, decrease loneliness, and increase social interaction.

But financial hardship is a reality for most of us at some point in our lives. For others, economic struggle defines every single day.

THAT’S WHY FIFTY PERCENT OF THE PROFITS FROM THE SALE OF EVERY INSPECTOR DEWEY BOOK WILL FUND VETERINARY CARE FOR PETS WHOSE FAMILIES ARE IN FINANCIAL NEED.

Book by book, we help people keep their pets in their home and out of the shelter system. Home is where best friends belong.

THE BACKSTORY

I tried to hide the truth for years, but with my first book, Inspector Dewey, the cat is out of the bag: I am a cat lady.

It’s not just my cats that I love, although they are indisputably the best cats in the world. I love all cats. Big and small, loud and quiet, feisty and calm, long-haired and short-haired. For as long as I can remember, I’ve been wanting to help as many cats as I could.

IF YOU LOVE A CAT, YOU KNOW THEY’RE SPECIAL

But caring for a cat—especially a sick one—can be overwhelming when money is tight. I know this because I had to help my cat during a time of transition. Lily needed surgery to help her live a normal cat life. I stressed and struggled to scrape together the funds. Since then, I’ve realized how many owners need a little financial help to return their pet to health.

Sadly, during my volunteer work in shelters, I’ve seen a lot of owners leave their beloved companion behind because the financial burden became too big.

OUR PETS BELONG IN THEIR PROPER PLACE: OUR HOME.
