An Evening with “Dogtripping” Author David Rosenfelt will Benefit the Pope Memorial Humane Society
(ROCKLAND, ME): On Thursday, February 6, at 7:00 p.m. at the Strand Theater in Rockland, David Rosenfelt, author of the book "Dogtripping", will share his adventures of traveling from California to Maine with 25 rescue dogs in 3 RVs. Entitled “An Evening with David Rosenfelt”, WCSH-TV’s Don Carrigan will emcee, and Thomaston Place Auction Galleries will sponsor this event. All proceeds will benefit the Pope Memorial Humane Society of Knox County’s (PMHSKC) capital campaign.
Rosenfelt is a mystery writer with over a dozen mystery novels to his credit, but as a result of this cross-country adventure, he veered off to highlight this unusual and often humorous trip in “Dogtripping”. The STARRED Library Journal noted: “This book will inspire readers to look at their own dogs with a new appreciation – and to pay that love forward by helping a shelter dog in need. A story as poignant as it is hilarious.”
Rosenfelt said: I am a long-time supporter of animal shelters around the country, and I welcome the chance to share my adventures and help raise needed funds for the Pope Memorial Humane Society.”
“We are thrilled to have this engaging, nationally known author share this moving and funny story to help us help the homeless animals in our community. The commitment and dedication David and his wife have towards dogs in need is truly inspiring," added Tracy Sala, PMHSKC Executive Director.
The evening will also include a live auction led by Thomaston Place Auction Galleries owner and auctioneer Kaja Veilleux. The auction will feature, among other things, the opportunity to have your name become a character in one of David's future books!
