FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CONTACT: Michael Bennett
New York, April 24, 2006:
When researcher and bestselling author, Eleonora De Lennart was contacted by her friend Barrie Switzen, a successful TV producer at Manhattan Network—she was informed that Switzen’s colleague and close friend, Carol Farren was in desperate need for help. Farren’s cause to aid in rescuing, rehabilitating, and adopting cats and dogs through her Animal Shelter in upstate East Durham, NY.
De Lennart didn’t hesitate to donate a couple of hundred copies of her just released new book, Dogs Don’t Cry Tears to help Carol and her Animal Shelter for a fundraising party and offered to include a book signing of her latest book.
“I’m happy that there are people like Carol out there, people who help those dogs and cats whom we took into our lives without asking them whether they want to be with us or not. Creatures who became dependent on us—and who many of us have let down, simply because people do not understand that every creature in this world, has a brain, can think, feel, has strategies, makes decisions—loves and hates, becomes angry and sad—but first and foremost, needs love.”
Carol Farren, herself a writer, who wrote the successful non-fiction book Planning and Managing Interior Projects, and is a part time resident of New York City, finds time in her busy schedule to run the Animal Shelter, Love N Care Pet Sanctuary, Inc, a 501(c)3 nonprofit corporation.
Farren said, “I put in as much personal monetary backing as I could, but it’s not enough to complete the goals of our mission. I was so happy that Eleonora did not even hesitate, for even one second, to help us. Our mission is to rescue stray and abandoned companion animals, provide health care for them (including spay/neuter procedures as required), provide temporary homes, socialize them, and locate loving permanent homes. We are a 5 year old, nonprofit organization in Greene County, New York.” Farren explained that she and her partner, Barbara Hulbert, are volunteers and are currently caring for over 100 animals in foster homes. “We are badly in need of funding that will enable us to continue our good work.”
Author De Lennart said, “Barrie asked me if I possibly could participate to aid the cause of this Animal Shelter—as she knew that the book I recently wrote was extremely close to my heart and represents how I truly and deeply feel. I wanted to write this book for many years, but didn’t have the time. But when I realized the injustices that were being done to animals—on a daily basis—I had to help in some way—and I put my efforts into finally writing this book.”
De Lennart continued to explain that from the breeding practices; the 24/7 chaining of a dog without giving them any freedom or quality of life—she realized, “Just how primitive some people are.” But she explained that the biggest horror and one that causes her ongoing nightmares …is the fact that dogs and cats are being skinned alive in China “…because Europeans will not stop importing hides and by doing so are supporting this barbaric behavior.”
The fundraising party and book signing of best selling author, De Lennart’s Dogs Don’t Cry Tears will take place on Sunday, May 7, 2006 from 1 pm to 4 pm. at Sir Walter Pet Supply, 454 Main Street, Cairo, NY 12413, and telephone: 518-622-2200. Dianna Henke, is graciously providing the venue for this exciting event.
The five women urge that all those who feel they would like to support the cause to stop the barbaric behavior of animal skinning—and the mistreatment of animals to please stop by and show their support. This will be an enlightening session to find out what you can do to help—speak to the author and have a book signed if you so wish to purchase this latest book.
