When animal lovers learn about the cruelty and killing that are rampant in U.S. shelters, and that national animal protection organizations such as the Humane Society of the United States (HSUS), the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) and People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA) defend these shelters and thwart efforts at reform, the first and the most logical question they ask is: Why? Why are organizations which are supposed to protect animals the biggest defenders of the very shelters that systematically abuse and kill them?
My wife and I wrote Friendly Fire not only to expose this crisis of cruelty, but to explain the nature of the opposition so that others—animal lovers, public officials, legislators, the media—can find the confidence and courage necessary to see through, and stand up to, those who seek to delay and derail urgently needed shelter reform.
To make that possible, Friendly Fire is being sold at cost and is available in three formats: full color, black and white, and as a Kindle e-book. The color version sells for $35.99. The black and white version is only $9.99. We wanted to provide an affordable version of the book as a tool for animal activists to use in their fight for No Kill; to distribute to local media, commissioners, council members, state legislators and others who are likely to be confused by the opposition to their efforts by HSUS, the ASPCA, PETA and the director of their local pound. Finally, an e-book will be available for only $3.99 (cost plus $1.00 to cover licensing fees for the many photographs in the book).
Friendly Fire is now on sale exclusively through Amazon.
Please note: Friendly Fire contains graphic photo images.
