A Fall Find! From Waif to Wonderful




When we checked in last, we told all of our wonderful Lil' Waif followers to stay tuned. While that update seems like a long time ago it is finally the right time to rally up announcements and e-blasts of a special delivery. Creating this book was both a wonderful and challenging experience and we are excited to navigate the new adventures post-publishing will bring.

Timmy’s Rescue: One Lil’ Waif at a Time is a true story about finding inspiration and gifts of friendship. Now, when people ask, "Just how did you get involved in rescue?" this story, can be our answer... Watching our book evolve while patiently wading through the publishing process has been a worthwhile venture and now we're ready to share it. It's done! It's finally here. Time to spread the word and begin our adventure into the book-world; we're excited! We hope you are too.

As someone whose life is the happier for the loving efforts of Rebecca Kizanis and her family, especially daughter Evangelynn, I was intrigued to read the story behind Lil Waif Puppy Rescue.

When I found what looked to be my perfect puppy through Pet Finders, the on-line service, I began a very gratifying and professional experience culminating in getting a most cherished companion.

My pup was featured with great skill, sensitivity and creativity. The application process told me that these people were serious about wanting good homes for their charges and when I picked up my pup, I felt the love and devotion abounding in every aspect of this family operation.

This small book packs a wallop. It is about awareness that animals are suffering right under our noses. It is about ‘just doing it’, following your heart even when the path and its destination is uncertain. It is about walking our talk about compassion and dedication to the needs of our world. It is about discerning precious individuality in each one of the many. It is about working with the people you draw into the process along the way. It is about persevering even though despite every effort sometimes things don’t work out, as with Timmy. It is an example to us all.

Your book was fantastic, a great read. Was not ready for the ending though, kinda snuck up on me. Your book is quite inspirational I must say. I also think what you are doing for these animals is amazing. You have a big heart. You must go around the clock..
