Penguin Books presents "Read Humane" Books in Support of Pets

Penguin Group (USA) is proud to present Read Humane®—their second year dedicated to the fight against animal cruelty—with a $25,000* donation to The Humane Society of the United States' Animal Rescue Team.

* Regardless of Sales

May is National Pet Month — and Penguin is pleased to offer six of their bestselling mass market titles to support our furry friends.

The Read Humane special editions feature a distinctive Read Humane seal on their covers, conveying their support for this compassionate cause. Participating authors include their Read Humane spokesperson, Jill Shalvis, as well as Linda O. Johnston, Miranda James, Leann Sweeney, Judi McCoy, and Ali Brandon.

Penguin's donation supports the Animal Rescue Team, which works with law enforcement to investigate illegal animal cruelty, targeting the worst cases of animal abuse nationwide. According to The Humane Society of the United States, its Animal Rescue Team rescues thousands of animals from puppy mills, animal fighting operations, hoarders, and other situations where animals suffer from life-threatening cruelty. They also provide expert animal rescue response during natural disasters.

Join in the fight against animal cruelty by making your own tax-deductible donation today. To make a donation online, and to find out more about the work of The Humane Society of the United States, click here.
