Harley Saves the Day

by Karen Patterson
Illustrated by Nina Robichaud

Harley is a loving dog with a big body and a loud bark. When Anthony adopts him from the animal shelter in town, the two immediately become best friends.

It comes as a surprise when they encounter neighbors on their morning walk who are frightened by Harley’s physical features. Despite Anthony’s attempts to showcase Harley’s friendly personality, neighbors put pressure on him to keep Harley inside and away from their homes.

When a house fire threatens the life of an elderly neighbor, Harley jumps into action to save her life. Ironically, it’s Harley’s loud bark that alerts rescuers to their location and brings the help she so desperately needs. Through Harley’s heroic act, will the neighborhood begin to look beyond his physical appearance and see him for the caring dog that he is?

Join Harley as he proves that kindness and compassion can change the world. Harley Saves the Day is perfect for ages 7 and up, and makes a wonderful addition to humane or anti-bullying education programs.

rockyreturnedcover19lo-dropAbout Rocky’s Story:

Anna and her best friend Molly run a blog and podcast called The Returned, helping returned shelter dogs find new, loving homes and families.

With four successful adoptions through their program, the girls discuss choosing their next dog to feature. Unbeknownst to Anna and Molly, their mission will find them—in the form of a chained dog named Rocky.

Rocky is a pit bull mix who is forgotten in the summer heat in an overgrown backyard next door to the town library. When the girls and their friend Erin stumble across Rocky and his dilemma, they are faced with moral and ethical decisions.

How can they free the dog from a bad situation and get him into a loving home?

In the meantime, they discover a local family has been living homeless, and they too are in need of assistance. Will Anna, Molly, and Erin find a way to work through the challenges to find a happy ending for both Rocky and a family in need? Find out in this second installment of The Returned: Rocky’s Story.

Perfect for ages 10 and up and grades 4-8, the series also makes an excellent humane education tool for nonprofits and humane educators.
