The authors of Pets in Space stories love pets in all their wonderful variations. And we enjoy sharing our science fiction romances with readers. But what we love best is showing our support for the Hero Dogs charity by donating 10% of the preorders and first month’s profits. Pets in Space loves Hero Dogs!
Who Are Hero Dogs?
Hero Dogs raises and trains service dogs for placing with disabled veterans and first responders.
Service dogs are very special beasties. They have to learn to thrive in a world they didn’t create, and reliably do things against their instincts. Ride an escalator. Ignore the jackhammer, the kid offering a bite of hot dog, and the squirrel.
Plus, they have to anticipate obstacles or problems and alert their human companion.
Here’s the shoe you dropped.
Stop — this is the top of the stairs.
The light is green, so we can cross the street.
I’m on the bed because you’re having a bad night. You should take your medicine.
Just like not every human is an opera singer, not every dog is suited for a service dog career. Some are better at encouraging and comforting people in therapy or rehabilitation, and some want to be friends with every patient in the facility. Hero Dogs places dogs where they’ll be happy.
