Someone asked me, how did I come about doing this kind of work? I told them the story about Soupbone and how I fell in love with him and felt the need to protect him for the rest of his life. They encouraged me to teach this  so    that next generation knows how to do this.

I thought back to my Lady Oliver Cheesecake recipe, and how we had people lining up at Zabars, Bloomingdales  and Balducci's    for hours just to get a taste. I never gave my secret recipe to anyone. But I realized that my other recipe, the one I used to cook up the Pet Protection Agreement® pet trust was one that I needed to share. That is the purpose of the book Paw & Order: You Love Your Pet? Keep the Good Life Goring With A Pet Trust.   It includes a  free    Pet Protection Agreement® pet trust.

PAW & ORDER: You Love Your Dog? Keep The Good Life Going With A Pet Trust

The tale of how one dog inspired a safer world for our animals,    a book authored by Rachel Hirschfeld and published by Page Publishing.

Certainly, you love and treasure your animals. In return, they give you everything they’ve got, priceless companionship, and extraordinary days.

So, what happens when you are not able to be there for them? Their needs continue, but how will those needs    be met? 

WHAT PEOPLE ARE SAYING: "We have all been waiting a long time for Rachel Hirschfeld to write a book specifically for lay people so everyone can do it themselves. When Rachel lectures, she talks to the public, the people with animals, those who love their pets, those who run shelters and rescues. Finally, we have Rachel’s words and the Pet Protection Agreement pet trust in a book for an unusually low price. That’s the way Rachel is. A concerned and caring animal welfare attorney through and through. I couldn’t put it down. I love the stories and the examples. With Paw & Order you have a front row seat.
