Those of you who have followed the journey of my dogs know that they all are rescue dogs. Bud I found but Piper and Jack were rescued from deplorable conditions and then adopted by me. I can not imagine having a dog that is not a rescue as there are so many who have been neglected, abused and mistreated needing a home. So when I saw that Operation ResCUTE™ was a book, and a sweet plush, about a rescue dog, I had to have him for my kids.

The story stars the true-life-story of Jingles, a homeless puppy in New York City that gets to live happily ever after. Youngsters discover (as they snuggle with their plush pup) that shelters are full of friendly faces. Like many happy-ending stories, this one began tragically when NYC marketing powerhouse Laurie Brown-Nagin spotted an Animal Control Officer carrying a puppy to a pro-bono veterinarian. The animal lover and mom fell in love with Jingles, the shelter pooch that desperately needed a warm, loving home. As a marketing researcher, Brown-Nagin discovered only 30 percent of pets in homes come from shelters and rescueorganizations. Worse, an estimated 2.7 million healthy pets remain in shelters each year! She started a non-profit, www.OperationRescute.com, and used her years of marketing prowess to package this inspiring boxed set for the next generation to read and feel empowered to make a difference.
