The Ripple EffectThe Ripple Effect

A novel exploring the challenges and triumphs of running an animal shelter

The Ripple Effect is a fiction book set in an animal shelter in the four-corners region of the United States. It is the story of one woman’s journey of self-discovery as she navigates the complexities of managing an open-admission animal shelter.

Providing a rare and candid look into American Animal Shelters, The Ripple Effect explores the no-kill debate, veterinary conflicts, the impacts of nationwide population imbalances, and other sensitive but necessary-to-discuss topics.

Inspiring and revealing, The Ripple Effect weaves together the animals, the people, and the issues in play across the country. Available through Amazon

Marcy is currently working on her second book.
