After rescuing a puppy twenty five years ago Diane Rose-Solomon became involved in animal rescue and education, serving for years on the board of directors of a small grassroots animal rescue organization. To learn more about how she could help create more awareness for homeless animals, Diane became a Certified Humane Education Specialist through Humane Society University. She then combined her creative and humane interests and wrote and published two award-winning children books JJ the American Street Dog, and How He Came to Live in Our House and the sequel JJ Goes to Puppy Class. What to Expect When Adopting a Dog, her latest non- fiction book, is a guide to successful dog adoption for every family. Diane’s current work as the founder of Animal Magic Films, is a series of documentary films that highlight the therapeutic benefits of the human-animal bond which can be found on her website: www.animalmagicfilms.com.
