Monkey’s House a Dog Hospice & Sanctuary is truly Where Dogs Go To Live!
Southampton, NJ October 22 - How sad it would have been had Cole disappeared into that dark room in the back of the shelter, alone and frightened, as if he never existed. This is often the fate of dogs afflicted with medical issues. Cole, a senior dog with cancer, was discarded by his owner, much like throwing away an old pair of shoes. Michele and Jeff Allen said enough is enough and started a dog hospice and celebrate the beauty each dog has to offer. They have welcomed over 100 hospice dogs into their home, thankfully Cole was one of those dogs that experienced the final chapter of his life filled with dignity and love.

101 Rescue Puppies: One Family's Story of Fostering Dogs, Love, and Trust By Kathy Callahan New book offers A unique and cheering look into one family’s journey of fostering over 100 puppies and finding them homes “These are love stories, plain and simple.” — JENNIFER S. HOLLAND, author of the New York Times bestselling Unlikely Friendships series “Told with humor and humility, 101 Rescue Puppies is as entertaining as it is inspiring.” — TRAER SCOTT, author of Shelter Dogs and Finding Home Over the past decade, Kathy Callahan’s family has taken in more than 100 rescue puppies from shelters. Each pup has an endearing story, and in this delightful photo-filled book, Callahan shares many of them. Her family didn’t set out to be puppy saviors, but as Callahan puts it, “Somebody had surrendered a mother dog, Nala, and her less-than-a-month-old pups at the local shelter. . . . I thought about that exhausted nursing mom who’d been caring for those seven puppies around the clock, only to find herself suddenly homeless. There are a lot of terrible things that happen in life, and I can’t do a darned thing about most of them. It struck me that this was a tiny little tragedy in my corner of the world that our family could remedy.” A heartwarming read, this is also an inspiring example of finding your own way — through that one special thing you can do to light a light, instead of cursing the darkness. KATHY CALLAHAN is a certified professional dog trainer. Her PupStart business offers coaching, socialization, and training services to families with new dogs. She and her dogs have worked as a therapy team in elementary schools and nursing homes. She lives in Alexandria, Virginia.
