As many of you know, it has been my privilege and passion to volunteer at my local Humane Society here in Putnam County NY. This new Book and Cd were written out of love for the senior dogs and cats that my husband Tim and I fostered or adopted from The Putnam Humane Society. It is also spotlighting the plight of senior pets in all animal shelters and encouraging people to adopt seniors from their local shelter if possible. 
       
Everyone deserves a second chance.
I will donate 5 dollars (50% of profit) of each Book and CD sold, to The Putnam Humane Society or the shelter/rescue of your choice.
From the bottom of my heart and soul, I thank my co producers Tim Ouimette and Jon Cobert, who created the most delightfully quirky tracks to go with my rather silly songs for shelter dogs and cats and the people who ADORE them!
              I wrote the books under the pseudonym Myra Freeman, my paternal grandmother. ;)
                           My larger goal with this project is to create a more humane sheltering prototype and to Ban Kill Shelters.

                              THANK YOU TIM OUIMETTE AND JON COBERT 
                                                                                                                        for your amazing talents and zaniness!
 These stories and songs were written for actual senior shelter pets.
 $5 of each sale will go to the animal shelter or rescue of your choice.

Who is Myra Freeman?

 

Myra Freeman is a nom de plume. The actual Myra Freeman (McGunnigle) was born in 1888 and died in 1952. The daughter of Irish immigrants who came to the United States to escape the potato famine and start a new life, she lived in Brockton, Massachusetts, had three sons, Gerard, Robert and Eddie and was very beloved. Her nickname was Gramma Peach because of her “peachy” disposition. During much of her lifetime, women weren’t allowed to vote or do anything professionally.

The author is her granddaughter, Kathi, who promised her Dad, Robert Francis Xavier McGunnigle, she would name her daughter after Myra. Never having a

daughter, she decided to write this book—so filled with love for the pets she considers her “furry children”—in honor of her grandmother by using her name as a nom de plume.

Kathi also wrote this book to spotlight the plight of senior dogs and cats in animal shelters who often get passed by just because of their age.
