Come south soon! The Atlanta area is home to thousands of pet lovers and has an affiliate shelter partner with Best Friends. We love your Shelter Stories and giving a voice to pets in need. We look forward to seeing many more for years to come. Keep up the great work!

Please come to the Washington DC area!!! I’d love to thank you in person for all the smiles Mutts has given me!


Please come to the West Coast, Patrick! Specifically, Sacramento, CA. :) Love Mutts!
Used to have the Yesh! mug but it broke. Know where I can find another?


Please visit Nashville when you can!


Either Las Cruces, NM or El Paso, Tx.

Patrick, you will never know the impact your daily Mutts has on our lives. The inclusion of a thought provoking quote is an added bonus. You are a genius and a true humanitarian. I thank you from the bottom of my heart. Boswell Books in Milwaukee, WI would be a fantastic venue to listen to you speak. ( that is a MAJOR hint!). Thank you Patrick for bringing a smile to my heart every single day. A Wisconsin Fan!

Visit us in Manchester, New Hampshire!


THANK YOU FOR MUTTS, PATRICK! I’d love to see you visit us in Texas; perhaps Fort Worth, a wonderful city and my first choice to see you! If not in Fort Worth, maybe Austin? I live North of Austin and south of Fort Worth (in Georgetown, Tx.).

I am a volunteer at our animal shelter. Your “Shelter Stories” are inspiring!




When are you coming to Seattle? : )

Will Patrick be adding more dates in 2020 to promote the new book, I was going to see him tonight but the weather is not great.
Thank you.
