About

A Quiet Shelter There. An estimated four million unwanted dogs and cats are euthanized every year in the United States. Throughout the country, animal shelters, humane societies, and other rescue groups are working to change this by helping homeless animals find forever homes, healing those that are sick or injured, providing training and socialization for those that need it, and working toward a future in which there are no more homeless pets. This anthology directly benefits one of those shelters, Friends of Homeless Animals, which has rescued and placed dogs and cats in the Washington D.C. metro area since 1973. We are looking for: Stories about companion or service animals. Preference will be given to speculative fiction: science fiction, fantasy, horror, magical realism, etc. But we will also consider other kinds of fiction, including (and especially) humor. While we welcome poetry submissions, we will probably not use very many poems in the book. The submission can be from an animal's point of view, or it can be a more traditional story that features or deals with animals in some way.
