Miracle Dog to Visit North Carolina April 9th Through 15th
His Book Tells the Story of 'Miracle Dog' Who Survived the Gas Chamber and
Lived to See It Shut Down
He will be traveling North Carolina working at shutting down their gas
ST. LOUIS, April 3 /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 6pm, 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 the North Carolina Coalition for Humane Euthanasia. 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). Contact: Randy Grim 314-776-2333 firstname.lastname@example.org to set up interviews
