Hello.I’m Lauren Vancouver.
Sorry that I'm late in
posting this, but I've been involved in some pretty intense pet rescues lately.
That's what I do.Most of the time, I acquire the pets that I
adopt out from my wonderful shelter HotRescues from local high-kill shelters in
the Los Angeles area, both from local public city shelters and those from the
surrounding areas.I feel sorry for the
people who work there.They don't always
want to kill the animals they have to deal with, but as public shelters they
have to take in all pets and often wind up having too many to shelter and care
Not so with my wonderful
HotRescues.My goal in life is to take
in as many dogs and cats and sometimes other small animals that I can and find
them wonderful new homes immediately--so I can bring in more wonderful animals
Sometimes the rescues are
not what you usually imagine.In fact,
some of those are chronicled in my upcoming adventure TEACUP TURBULENCE, which
will be available in January 2014.TEACUP involves a major rescue a long distance from L.A. of teacup-sized dogs.There aren't enough adopters of those kinds
of dogs in the rescue area.But in L.A., even though we
usually have too many little dogs, there's been an ad campaign sponsored by my
shelter's benefactor Dante Defrancisco which has led the demand for tiny dogs to
new heights.As a result, we bring in as
many of the little rescues that we can--via a very special group of pilots and
planes who fly them here.
Anyway, I'd better get back
to my rescue.But please be sure to
watch for TEACUP TURBULENCE.It's a different
kind of rescue--although there are lots of wonderful organizations all over the
country that help to relocate pets by plane, car or any other way, to help get
as many as possible new and wonderful homes.
