Carma was an albino pit bull found starving, sick, and stranded along the side of a Kentucky highway. She was rescued and spent the rest of her days educating ...

COMING UP.

WE'LL HAVE MORE WITH JEFF SPEEDY AND CLOSETS BY DESIGN. >> THANKS SO MUCH. >>> WHILE WE'RE TALKING ABOUT TRANSFORMATIONS, HERE'S A PITBULL THAT WAS FOUND STARVING SICK AND STRANDED ON A HIGHWAY. >> A LOUISVILLE RESCUED HER AND NAMED HER KARMA AND REHABBED HER AND THEN SHE SPENT THE REST OF HER DAYS FOR CHILDREN'S THERAPY. KARMA'S TAIL HERE, THEY ALREADY HAD A DOG AND CAT AND THEY'RE USING HER STORY TO HELP THE SHAMROCK FOUNDATION. WE HAVE CASEY HERE AND THE WHOLE FAMILY. THANK YOU ALL. TELL US THE STORY WHEN YOU FOUND THIS POOCH. >> WELL I WAS DRIVING THROUGH LOUISVILLE, AND I FOUND THIS PUP ON THE SIDE OF THE ROAD. I DIDN'T THINK SHE WAS COME TO ME, BUT SHE DID AN ARMY CRAWL AND GAVE ME HER BELLY. I HAD A BRAND NEW WORK VAN THAT I DIDN'T WANT TO HAVE ANY PETS IN OF COURSE.

SO, IT'S AN INTERESTING STORY, I CALLED MARY AND SHAMROCK STEPPED IN AND HELPED WITH THE MEDICAL EXPENSES. >> RIGHT, BECAUSE SHE WASN'T IN GOOD SHAPE? >> RIGHT AND THEY OFFERED WONDERFUL ADVICE AND HELPED WITH THE MEDICAL EXPENSES AND THEN WE DECIDED TO KEEP HER. >> CHERYL AND TODD TOO, AND MESSING UP YOUR WORK VAN, BUT SO GOOD TO REACH OUT AND HELP AN ANIMAL IN NEED LIKE THIS AND YOU GAVE HER A GREAT LIFE. >> OUR DAUGHTERS HELPED TOO. >> SO WHAT INSPIRED THE BOOK HERE? WE'RE GOING BRING YOU IN, BUT TELL US ABOUT THE BOOK. >> WE HAD CO-AUTHORED ANOTHER BOOK AND WHEN EVERYTHING HAPPENED WITH KARMA, WE THOUGHT IT WOULD BE A GREAT OPPORTUNITY TO TEACH CHILDREN ABOUT HOW TO RESCUE OR HELP AN INJURED ANIMAL, WHO TO CONTACT AND WHAT YOU SHOULD DO. HOW YOU COULD DONATE AND FUNDRAISE VOLUNTEER AND YOU

KNOW, SHOULD YOU ADOPT? >> AND IT'S INTERACTIVE IN THE BOOK. >> IT IS. A LOT OF TIMES PEOPLE DON'T KNOW WHAT TO DO AND WITH SHAMROCK, WE'RE 100% VOLUNTEER. SO THIS BOOK GIVES YOU THE RESOURCES AND TELLS HOW TO APPROACH THE ANIMAL. SOME PEOPLE DON'T EVEN KNOW HOW TO APPROACH THE PET AND WHAT TO DO IF YOU FIND ONE AND IF IT SHOULD COME IN YOUR HOME. THEY ALREADY HAD A DOG AND CAT AND DAUGHTERS, SO THEY'RE GOING AROUND TO SCHOOLS AND TALKING TO KIDS, WHICH IS, YOU KNOW WE HAVE TO TRAIN THE GENERATION TO TREAT THEM AND IT'S IMPORTANT TO SPAY AND NEUTER THEM AND USE THE RESOURCE US OUT THERE. >> WE CAN'T STRESS THAT ENOUGH, THAT SPAY AND NEUTER IS IMPORTANT AND TAKEN CARE OF THESE CREATURES GOING BEYOND ANYTHING. >> WE'RE SEEING THAT VIDEO OF HER, WHERE CAN PEOPLE GET THE BOOK AND THE PROCEEDS HELPING

THE SHAMROCK. >> ALL THE PROCEEDED GO TO SHAMROCK. THEY CAN GO TO KARMA TAIL'S.COM AND GO TO THE YOUTUBE VIDEO THAT HAS GREAT MUSIC FROM THE BAND JONES, SO IF THEY WOULD SHARE THAT WE WOULD GREATLY APPRECIATE THAT. SAME THING WITH FACEBOOK, ANYTHING TO DO TO GET IT OUT THERE. AND THEN THE FIRST THOUSAND DOLLARS FOR ANYONE THAT DOWNLOADS THE SONG WILL ALSO GO TO THEM, SO THANKS TO PEACE AND THE JONES AND THE GRAPHIC WORK ON THE BOOK. >> WE REALLY APPRECIATE IT AND WE KNOW THE LOSS WAS TOUGH, BUT IT'S A GREAT WAY TO PAY TRIBUTE. >> YOU CAN GET HER DIARY OF A HOMELESS PET AT KARMA'S TAIL'S.COM AND ON AMAZON. >> 100% OF THE PROCEEDS GO
