“That’s all for now. You can learn more about Susie’s happily-ever-after by reading my blog, The Returned. Click on Susie’s Story. Thanks for listening.”
Anna closed her podcaster app and put the microphone down. She and Molly had been best friends since second grade, and now the two girls run a blog and podcast called The Returned, which helps returned shelter dogs find new, loving homes and families.
With three successful adoptions under their belts, the girls are preparing for their next adoption mission. When Chewy, a yellow labrador, is dropped at the shelter, Anna and Molly become determined to find her a happily-ever-after of her very own.
In the meantime, Anna is struggling with her dad’s distant behavior. When Chewy’s blog is posted, Anna discovers that someone is threatening her family. Will Anna find out who is behind the threat? Will Chewy find the forever home she deserves? Find out in this first installment of The Returned: Chewy’s Story.
Perfect for ages 10-14 (and up!), and grades 4-8. The series makes an excellent humane education tool, too, for nonprofits and humane educators.
