Mickey's Bond with his Pet Featured in New Book
The Famous and the Obscure Bond With Their Animals
Animals touch the lives of both celebrities and ordinary people whom the world rarely bothers to notice.
Author Emily Scott Patrick decided to explore the unique bonds that people from all walks of life enjoy with their pets, in a book whose proceeds go entirely to benefit local animal rescue organizations.
“I haven’t seen anybody who hasn’t really benefited from animal love,” Patrick told KCBS reporter Patti Reising.
Small wonder then that Robin Williams and Peter Coyote share the pages of her book, Tails of Devotion, with people like Sherry Frankly, a volunteer at one of those organizations.
“I wanted to honor those people that either spend their professional time helping people and helping the animals, or people who volunteer their time,” Patrick said.
Besides the adorable pet pictures one might expect, Patrick also features letters and even music people have written to their pets.
Musician Mickey Hart and conductor Michael Tilson Thomas are also among the well-known pet owners profiled by Patrick. She is donating all of the proceeds to five local animal rescue groups.
All of the proceeds from the book will be donated to five Bay Area animal rescue organizations.
