The Animal Rescue Site, a longtime partner and supporter of the Petfinder.com Foundation, has released its first e-book, 100 Heartwarming Stories From The Animal Rescue Site. The book sold over 1,000 copies in its first week and is getting great reviews.
“We’ve been collecting stories of rescued pets and their ‘fur-ever’ homes for many years,” says 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 and other electronic media.”
The book is available for $0.99 for both Kindle and Nook,
and is a guaranteed fun read for animal lovers.

not just puppies and kittens, but also older pets, horses, rabbits,
ferrets and others,” says Greg Hesterberg, president of The Animal
Rescue Site and a Petfinder.com Foundation board member.
The book ends with a bonus story on the Petfinder.com Foundation’s Rescue U program and its January trip to Guthrie, OK,
