Lived to See It Shut Down

Mar 22, 2007, 01:00 ET from Stray Rescue of St. Louis

    ST. LOUIS, March 22 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ -- Quentin, the "Miracle
 Dog," was supposed to die in August 2003. But when the gas chamber door was
 opened, there stood Quentin on the corpses of seven less fortunate dogs.
 Now Quentin is busily promoting his award winning book, "Miracle Dog: How
 Quentin Survived the Gas Chamber to Speak for Animals on Death Row," and
 visiting North Carolina with hopes to shut down their gas chambers. Quentin
 and his guardian Randy Grim will be at Borders Books, Wednesday April 11 at
 4pm, 3605 High Point Rd. Greensboro, NC 27407 and at Books-a-Million,
 Saturday April 14, 12 noon-3pm, 8301 Concord Mills Blvd. Concord, NC.
 Quentin "signs" all books, too.
     In January of 2005 the St. Louis City dog pound shut down its gas
 chamber due to fund raising and lobbying efforts by Quentin and Randy Grim,
 founder and director of Stray Rescue. Now they plan to do the same in North
 Carolina by working with their local SPCA and NC Advocates for Animal
     Quentin now travels the globe in first-class accommodations. He parties
 with celebrities: Pierce Brosnan, Linda Blair, Fred Schneider of the B-52s,
 Dr. Jane Goodall (she wrote the forward to the book), Elaine Boosler, Mary
 Tyler Moore, Shirley Jones and many more.
     Randy Grim and Quentin are a juxtaposition of opposite personalities --
 quite the comedy pairing -- yet work together like no other team to spread
 the message of no-kill shelters and animal guardianship, and to call
 attention to our deplorable system of animal "welfare." Not only are they
 known across the world, but also they make fantastic subjects complete with
 stories of insatiable appetites, chronic flatulence, celebrity encounters
 and social dysfunctions.
     The Stray Rescue of St. Louis is a non-profit, no-kill animal shelter
 rescuing abused, neglected and abandoned animals and placing them in loving
 adoptive homes. Since it's founding in 1998, Stray Rescue has been
 responsible for finding adoptive homes for more than 5,000 dogs in the St.
 Louis area. Web: http://www.strayrescue.org.
     "Miracle Dog" is written by Randy Grim, with a forward by Jane Goodall,
 by Alpine Publishing (ISBN: 1577790715).
