It wasn't a huge quake. And the HotRescues facility was recently remodeled, including upgrades to the older parts of it. All was well when I reached my shelter, although of course my nerves were rattled.
Our security director Brooke Pernall was there, staying overnight as usual. So was her guy, LAPD detective Antonio Bautrell. They were both a bit shook up but had gone to check on all the animals, and everything was fine. I of course confirmed it by visiting all of our dogs and cats myself. By then, they were back to begging for food and attention--and I gave them both.
If things hadn't been fine, we'd have found a way to take care of every one of the wonderful cats and dogs, even if we wound up doing the airplane rescue described in our most recent adventure, TEACUP TURBULENCE, in reverse--flying animals out of
instead of here to
be adopted. L.A.
Here at HotRescues, our animals come first. We take care of them all and find them new, loving homes as quickly as possible.
Not even an earthquake can stop that--or at least this one, fortunately, didn't.
TEACUP TURBULENCE, the fifth Pet Rescue Mystery by Linda O. Johnston, was a January 2014 release from
