A local author writes in support of animals

Since adopting two dogs from the New York animal shelter, Kevin Mac-Kinnon wanted to do more to help Las Vegas pets find forever homes. So he came up with a synopsis for a children’s book, and You’re My Human was born. MacKinnon plans to self-publish his book and is currently running a crowd-sourcing campaign to raise funds for publishing, illustration and advertising costs.

“I know it will resonate with anyone who has ever rescued an animal,” MacKinnon said on his GoFundMe page. At press time, he had raised $2,590 of $5,000. Donations beyond $5,000 will go to the Nevada SPCA and the New York-based SocialTeesNYC.
