About the Rhoda D’Ettore:Rhoda D'Ettore

Rhoda D’Ettore was born in Woodbury, New Jersey, into a family of 5 siblings–which has provided her with plenty of comical material. She began working at the United States Postal Service at 25 years old, and over the past 15 years has accumulated many humorous stories about situations that the public never gets to know about. Her first ebook, “Goin’ Postal: True Stories of a U.S. Postal Worker” was so popular that readers requested it in paperback. Recently, she published the humorous “Goin’ Postal” in paperback along with another story entitled, “The Creek: Where Stories of the Past Come Alive”. Combining these two into one book may seem strange, as one is humorous and the other is a heart wrenching historical fiction, however, doing so proves to the reader Rhoda D’Ettore’s versatility.

Rhoda D’Ettore received her degree in Human & Social Services while working at USPS, has travelled extensively, and loves history. Over the years she has volunteered for several community service organizations, including fostering abused and neglected dogs for a Dalmatian rescue.

For more information please visit Rhoda’s website. You can also find her on Facebook and Twitter.

RescueAtDeadDogBeach hc cThanks to Kendra Newton of It Books/Harper Collins, I am giving away one copy of ‘The Rescue at Dead Dog Beach’.

Book Description:

Have you ever been to Puerto Rico? You know, that amazing, tropical island with sandy beaches, exotic hideaways, and breathtaking waterfront views. In fact, there’s one postcard-perfect beach called Playa Lucia where residents and visitors flock daily for relaxation and fun, it also has a dark side – it’s nicknamed Dead Dog Beach because it’s a notorious dumping ground for the island’s unwanted canines.

This wasn’t immediately known to Stephen McGarva when he moved to the island with his wife, where they hoped to find inspiration and adventure. One day McGarva visited Playa Lucia, and instead of a day of adventure and leisure, he found a sick and abandoned dog. This dog, and the quest to save him, transformed McGarva and gave him a new purpose to save as many forgotten animals as possible.

In The Rescue at Dead Dog Beach, McGarva shares his story of helping the satos, or unwanted dogs, of the island. Often considered a threat to the area’s lucrative tourism industry, these defenseless animals are in constant danger of brutality and death. Enraged, and refusing to accept such cruelty, he began protecting these helpless animals in any way he could – but it didn’t come without a cost, both financially and personally. And McGarva soon discovered that there were many people working against him – undermining his efforts and threatening violence to both himself and the dogs. However, McGarva refused to back down, and during his two years on Dead Dog Beach, he ultimately managed to save hundreds of dogs.

A call to arms for animal lovers everywhere, and full of insights and practical information to help strays anywhere in the world, The Rescue at Dead Dog Beach is as powerful as it is heartbreaking. A must-read for animal advocates everywhere!

About Stephen McGarva:Steve McGarva

STEPHEN MCGARVA is the founder of The Achates Legacy Foundation, a non-profit organization that works to end the abuse of strays and build animal friendly communities and Mexico and Puerto Rico. Steve first came to prominence as the Dog-Rescuer, for his work saving hundreds of dogs in Puerto Rico.

He has been featured in People magazine, on NPR, and appeared on Ellen.
