Author Dean Koontz donates Signed Books to RSDR 

Update:  latest news of the Auction which took place on the 8th April 2010 is on the Events page of our website 

12 December 2009 -  I have been the Fundraising & Media Co-Ordinator for a little while and have written lots of emails to different celebrities.

Awhile back, I decided to post a letter to one of my favourite Authors - Dean Koontz telling him about the RSDR and what wonderful people the Rowles family are. 
I didn't really expect to get a reply as I know he is such a busy man and would get thousands of fan letters every day, but I still had some hope that maybe he would read my letter and help.
Last Thursday, I went to work and a huge parcel had come for me from the United States. I opened it and there were 3 signed books from Dean Koontz himself, and a lovely letter asking if these would help with fundraising!!!!
Imagine my delight and surprise!! I was so excited that I text messaged Diane right then and there, telling her the fantastic news and wonderful gesture from Dean Koontz!!
I would just like to thank you Dean, for such a wonderful letter and such kind donations to the RSDR. You have given us hope, and an outlook that we can achieve getting enough funds to hopefully get a shelter for the RSDR.

The RSDR will be Auctioning these books off in the new year, and all money raised will go towards funds needed for the Rudozem Street Dog Rescue.

Dean, the RSDR have just recently found a little puppy, a little boy last night, who they have decided to call Koontz in honour of you, aswell as in memory of Trixie (Deans beautiful golden retriever).
Photo:  Kerry found Koontz last night half frozen in the snow, full of fleas and his gums
were white so we believe he was anemic from the fleas.  He has been bathed,
wormed and treated for fleas.  He is warm now and was able to eat after a sleep
and is doing a lot better.

Thank you Dean for such a wonderful gesture.  Diane, Tony and the Rowles kids and all the RSDR supporters and volunteers would like to thank you for your wonderful gift. xxxxx

 Kind Regards 
Anita Parsons
