"A stitch here. A blanket to stay warm. A day in my hands and their hearts begin to heal.

I am the keeper; mending, caring, and loving all animals until they are ready to be set free."

-Ken the Keeper (one of 16 books in the Gnat & Corky Series)

An interview with 12 year-old Ken creator of Happy Animals Club:

Why did you feel the need to start your organization?

Ever since I found out that shelters euthanize the animals that don't get adopted.

What do you hope to bring to the world through the Happy Animals Club?

I just want to rescue as many animals as I can.

If you were an animal, what would you be and why?

Wolf, because wolves are like dogs but they are independent of humans.

If you could send a message to the world and have everyone hear it, what would you say?

Don't complain about your life being unfair if you make animals' lives unfair.

Do you have a special animal that stands out from the rest that you've helped? Why is that animal so special?

Whitey because she's the first animal that was brought to the shelter and she was the reason the shelter got made.
