As you know by my previous post about Happy Tails Books, this is a publishing project that was designed partially as a fundraiser for dog rescues. Kyla reports that with a little boost over the holidays they are aiming to donate $4000 to the 34 rescue groups who contributed to the success of the books.
I think this is a pretty neat idea, so I said I would post their PSA. See below.
Are you still in need of the perfect holiday gift for dog-loving friends?

Ever wonder what life is like for canine Hollywood stars?
“Hollywood Barks!” is your backstage pass to the life, times, and training of Hollywood dogs! The book describes a brief history of dogs in Hollywood and then dives into the memoirs of Kathryn Segura, a renowned Hollywood Studio Wrangler (the person behind the camera who serves as the "dog director"). It includes stories about dogs on the sets of movies like Air Buddies, Indecent Proposal, and There's Something About Mary, and highlights the fact that many dogs used in movies, television, and commercial are rescues! Each chapter also includes a studio training tip readers can practice with their own dogs. A significant portion of profits is donated back to the South Los Angeles Shelter, which is in desperate need of assistance.
