I would like to take this time and introduce myself, Kelly Preston.  To say that I have a passion and a special place in my heart for animals; especially with those that have special needs, would be an understatement.  I grew up having dogs, horses and even a bunny.  All through my childhood and early adult years, I had at least a dog or a horse.  Then, in my early thirties, the dog I had at that time, Gizmo, developed a brain tumor.  One may say from that point, fate was set as a foundation for what would happen to me over the next years; however, it was unbeknownst to me at that time.  Through the years, I became the very proud parent of four dogs; all having special needs.  However, my experience with a loved one having a special need, started way before my beloved four dogs; it all began with my late brother Shawn, he was a Down’s Syndrome child.  At the time I didn’t realize the path, as I became much older and mature, I saw and recognized the correlation.  It was at that moment, I knew I had been blessed in so many and numerous ways.

As I grew and learned from my four dogs, one day I had an “ah ha” moment; I wanted to share my journey with others, especially Young Adults.  I decided to write Real Dogs Don’t Whisper; share life lessons that those with special needs can teach us.  I wanted to avoid the book becoming too heavy, I thought it would be wonderful to have my co-author, Mr MaGoo, share his experiences from a dog’s point of view.  He brings unlimited humor to our journey, while I bring a spiritual message.





Do you believe in second chances? Real Dogs Don’t Whisper book is about second chances and miracles. Read about four rescue dogs that were ready to be given up on because they have special needs; they teach their human about life, love, and hope.

Kelly Preston, co-author of a newly published book, “Real Dogs Don’t Whisper”. Her co-author is Mr. MaGoo; he is a larger than life dog and has a lot to say.

Meet her family like no other: Kelly, Mr. MaGoo, Buffy, Carla Mae, and Betty Boop. A girl, her two Lhasa Apsos, one Cocker Spaniel, and one adorable mutt – each with their own challenging set of difficulties to overcome. One puppy has serious neurological disorders and is blind. Two were severely abused. All are on a journey of discovery. Together, learning love and patience along the way, perhaps none so much as Kelly.

Real Dogs Don’t Whisper: Life Lessons from a Larger than Life Dog! (and his Owner), is the true story of a remarkable family as told in a unique way by both Kelly, the owner of the household, and her spunky, hilarious, nine-year old Lhasa Apso, Mr. MaGoo. The narrative is at times tear-jerking, at times hysterical, and always enthralling.



Kelly’s Causes:

I support two charities that I donate to; Humane Society of Silicon Valley (www.hssv.org) and FACE Foundation (www.face4pets.org).  Within Humane Society of Silicon Valley is a pet store, Whole Pets. The store has purchased my book at a wholesale rate, stocking their shelves with it, with 100% proceeds going straight back into the organization.  Thus, helping provide funds for pets while they wait for their forever home.  Learn More

As I was preparing to publish “Real Dogs Don’t Whisper”, I reached out to FACE Foundation to establish if I may set up a donation effort for every book that was purchased; for every book purchased, I send a portion of the proceeds to FACE Foundation.  Prior to writing and publishing, I began to volunteer for FACE around their online marketing efforts, which I currently still do.

FACE Foundation is a nonprofit organization, based in San Diego, CA; 501(c)(3) public charity, whose mission is to enhance and preserve the quality of life of animals by providing access to necessary medical care and education. Based on established criteria, FACE provides financial grants to animal owners who are unable to partially or fully cover the cost of their pet’s emergency or critical care.

The FACE Foundation is the first of its kind in San Diego County. While there are wonderful charitable groups focused on finding homes for pets without families, there are no other organizations that are singularly dedicated to saving the lives of pets that are already in loving homes, but whose families cannot pay for all or part of the emergency or critical care they need to survive.

FACE relies solely on donations to continue its mission of providing access to life saving veterinary care and to enhance and preserve the quality of life for these loving pets.  Learn More
