GreaterGood Network Launches E-Books Division with Animal Rescue Stories

23 Feb
GreaterGood Network Publishing launched on February 6 with a title sure to please pet lovers: 100 Heartwarming Stories From The Animal Rescue Site.

Seattle, WA, February 22, 2012 –(PR.com)– “We’ve been collecting stories of rescued pets and their ‘fur-ever’ homes for many years,” said Tim Kunin, CEO of The Animal Rescue Site and GreaterGood Network. “These tales always have been one of the most popular features on the homepage, Facebook pages, and newsletters.”

One hundred stories out of several thousand were picked for the first volume from GreaterGood Network Publishing. Formatted into a .99 e-book available for both Kindle and Nook, the stories create a quick, fun, and positive read for animal lovers. A number of the pets profiled originally were considered “unadoptable” due to age, temperament, or breed.

“We hope that others will be encouraged by this e-book to consider adopting not just puppies and kittens, but also older pets, horses, rabbits, ferrets, and others,” said Greg Hesterberg, president of The Animal Rescue Site and a board member of the Petfinder.com Foundation.

Early reaction to 100 Heartwarming Stories has been positive, with more than 1,000 copies sold on Amazon.com alone in the first week of publication. Kunin and Hesterberg currently are considering additional volumes for the series and eventual publication of a print version.

The Animal Rescue Site celebrates its tenth anniversary in July. As a member of the “Click Here To Give” suite of GreaterGood Network websites, The Animal Rescue Site offers several quick and easy ways to support animal rescue work in the United States and around the world. Every free click on the homepage’s big purple button generates donations from the website’s sponsors (100% of the revenue earned from these ads goes to charity), all purchases from The Animal Rescue Site online store contribute to the website’s charitable partners, and visitors to the website can give to their favorite projects or specific nonprofits through the Gifts That Give More [tm] program.

Charitable grants funded by The Animal Rescue Site are distributed by GreaterGood.org, an independent 501c3 nonprofit. More information about The Animal Rescue Site and its charitable partners can be found at http://www.TheAnimalRescueSite.com.

Recent Donations to Animal Charities

GreaterGood.org announced that grants totaling more than $970,000 were given to 97 charities in January 2012, including more than $580,000 for the Petfinder.com Foundation grants for shelters and rescue groups throughout the United States. Funding for these grants came from “Click Here To Give,” Gifts That Give More™, and other programs found at The Animal Rescue Site as well as direct donations to GreaterGood.org.

The 2012 grant helps Petfinder.com Foundation sustain and expand such programs as Rescue U and the Shelter+ Challenge. Rescue U, which pairs college students with shelter building projects, started the year with the complete rebuild of the Guthrie, OK, shelter. That project included a $10,000 grant to the Guthrie shelter to help them feed and care for their animals. The Guthrie shelter lost their original building to a tornado in May and, while securing FEMA assistance for basic framing and foundation, needed the Rescue U assistance to finish the project.

The story of the Guthrie, OK, rebuild forms a bonus “one hundred and one” story at the end of 100 Heartwarming Stories From The Animal Rescue Site.

In 2011, GreaterGood.org donated over $1.6 million to animal rescue charities and $3.1 million to all causes.

The largest beneficiaries of grants to animal charities were the small shelters and volunteer rescue groups belonging to the Petfinder.com Network. GreaterGood.org grants to the Petfinder.com Foundation funded such programs as Shelter+ Challenge, Rescue U, disaster relief efforts, and more. Petfinder.com Network members of all sizes located in the United States, Canada, Grand Bahamas, and Costa Rica benefitted from Challenge grants.

New in 2011, a greater emphasis was placed on food banks distributing pet food to U.S. families hit hard by the recession. Providing them with food helped keep pets out of shelters. The programs made it possible for many seniors and those with disabilities to enjoy the comfort of a pet. The food banks were run by First Coast Pet Food Banks, Save Our Pets, Seattle Humane Society, and other groups serviced by Rescue Bank’s food distribution program.

Internationally, GreaterGood.org helped animal rescue groups respond to major natural disasters such as the tsunami and subsequent events in Japan, floods in India and Pakistan, and cyclones in Australia, among others.

Looking for a home for a 6yo cat, “WYATT”‏

6 Feb



The following is a courtesy listing in order to help find a good home for Wyatt. Please if you may know someone in Albuquerque NM that could help, please contact Joshua at the given number.


Albuquerque, NM- Hello, I am earnestly trying to find a good home for a cat.

 Briefly, my friend had an emergency and we are unsure how long he will be away from home…(months). He adopted “Wyatt” from the Humane Society only earlier last month (~Jan 7, 2012). Despite all our best efforts, we have not been able to find a foster or permanent home yet.
Description: WYATT EARP (name he came with from AH), 6yo, neutered Male, housecat, (DMH?), 1 previous owner prior to Humane Society, very sociable, healthy, with claws & a raccoon type tail 🙂

Wyatt seems to be a very personable little pet.  I would include paperwork, collar, feeding supplies, toys, etc.. And, if there’s a concern about cost, I’d be happy to ‘sponsor’ or otherwise, contribute what money I can to ensure Wyatt’s immediate needs.
We were first looking for someone to foster him until my friend is well again (he is a responsible pet owner just current circums are out of his control). In almost 1 month I have not been successful finding a foster or a permanent owner, so in expanding my search for a home and/or further advice, I’m hoping you may be able to help.
I am a pet owner myself and I am genuinely concerned and committed to making sure Wyatt gets a proper home quickly.  Thank you in advance for your reply and any help or suggestions you may have for me.  You can contact me via email or phone, usually I’m available to answer/respond to any message any time after 12pm.  Thank you very much.
Sincerely, –Josh Atlas     (505) 450 4755
