The Story

Our Organization, AskMrFrisky.org - named for our first rescue - is trying to raise money to publish our first animal shelter book, which can then be sold to raise sustaining money to continue our rescue and hospice work, continue to send supplies to shelters in need worldwide, and continue to connect people to their local animal shelter or rescue no matter where they live.  

Since we do NOT charge - never have, never will - animal shelters and rescues to be listed on our website's worldwide directory, nor to to share their needs on our social media feeds, we must find other ways to raise money. 

"There's a Scorpion in the Litter Box" is a compilation of my personal work in animal rescue and animal sheltering.  A mixture of fun adventures, and heartwarming tails, this book is a great read for anyone interested in companion animals regardless of age or whether or not they have a pet. There is a short excerpt here on this page from one of the chapters (see the gallery of pictures).

Our requested amount is based on the quote from CreateSpace which seems to be the cheapest route and enables us to sell and deliver the book to you securely via Amazon both in print and digital formats. The detailed quote is below.

All donated funds will go to publish through Amazon. 

Donation rewards:

  • $1 up to $24: Your name and your pet's name (if you wish) will be listed in the book acknowledgements of those who made it possible!
  • $25 up to $49: In addition to being listed in the book, you will receive a free copy of the e-book. 
  • $50 and over:  In addition to being listed in the book and a free e-book, you will receive a full color print book hand signed by me and shipped to you anywhere in the world (free shipping).  

PLEASE NOTE: when you donate, YouCaring, which survives on donations itself, has a drop down box where you can choose what level - if any - you want to add on to help support YouCaring. What we receive is your donation, less the 3% the credit card company charges.

You can read more about us on www.AskMrFrisky.org. Thank You and Please Join Us in Uniting the World to Adopt, Love, Give at your local animal shelter. 

Cheers, Lauren Greenwood, Founder and Proud Crazy Pet Lady

UPDATE on #book fundraiser: We're within $45 of what is needed to start the process ($355; need $400 for copy editing). While it's being edited, hopefully we can raise the additional $$ needed for kindle conversion, ISBN#, digital formatting

Sales of the book will allow us to raise the $$ to keep building the directory and sending supplies and funds to shelters worlwide because we do NOT (never have, never will) charge shelters and rescues to be listed nor share their needs
