Helping the Wounded

Yesterday, November 11 was Veteran’s Day. Author and animal activist Bob Harvey is offering a special gift to wounded Army, Navy, Marine, and Air Force Heroes in the hospital. Bob has committed 5,000 copies, from a new print run of his FULL-COLOR novel Catalyst, for a special Holiday Donation Program.

Harvey is asking everyone to consider the enormous price our wounded Veterans have paid to protect us and then to say “Thank You” by buying at least one copy of Catalyst. Bob Harvey will then pay the shipping and handling to deliver all the books to wounded Veterans in the hospital – hopefully visiting as many as possible in time for the holidays.

Plus, Harvey will donate 100% of the profit from this Program to Save Injured Pets across America . During his hospital “Thank You Tour”, Bob will be selecting the Animal Rescue Groups that will receive the donations.

The idea of Vets & Pets sprang from the pages of Bob Harvey’s novel Catalyst and one of the key characters is a wounded Veteran whose life is dramatically altered by the human/animal bond.

“Catalyst is a story of animal and man merging together for the good of each other…This is a story for ALL MANKIND.” Reader Views

“I never had a pet in my life until a stray cat adopted me at age forty-five. That special relationship taught me the two main themes I wove into Catalyst - To Honor All Life and to Learn What You Are Willing to Fight For. Two life lessons that Injured Pets instinctively grasp and Wounded Veterans understand all too well.” Bob Harvey

Another Great Idea for helping our soldiers!!!
