You're My Hero

Our dogs are our champions, defenders, and our best friends. They are our brave workmates, K9 police officers, war dogs, friend to the soldier, foe to the enemy, or just one of our most beloved family members. In short, they are our heroes.

This week, Be the Change for Animals focuses on You're My Hero, a new inspirational book series in which everyday people write and share stories about their everyday heroes.  The latest book in the series is devoted to that most selfless of heroes: the dog.

Each of the stories in the book will be written by dog owners, family members, trainers, or those directly involved with the events depicted. They are astonishing stories of courage, unconditional love, loyalty, inspiration, sacrifice, sadness, and joy.

Each purchase of this book will also help support animal shelters throughout the country. Five dollars of the purchase price will be directed to The Shelter Project, a nationwide effort to help find shelter dogs a loving forever home. The funds will help thousands of canine shelters across the US with supplies, food, veterinary care, training, transportation needs, and adoption events

Here's how you can help support this project:
  • Submit your hero dog's story
  • Like You're My Hero on Facebook
  • Follow You're My Hero on Twitter

Tell the world about your hero dog, and become a hero for thousands of shelter dogs too!
