Overview

Farkle Finds His Furever Home is the first book in the Farkle and Friends book series based on real life dogs from Touch of Grey Rescue.  This series was developed to bring more awareness to senior and special needs dogs in shelters and to help raise money so Touch of Grey Rescue can continue their mission of getting these dogs out of shelters. The second book Twas the Night Before Pawmas is scheduled to be released in the Fall of 2023. Wendy is currently writing Tucker and The Rainbow Bridge.  Proceeds from every book sale come to Touch of Grey Rescue.

Description

A dog named Farkle is abandoned by his family at the animal shelter. There, he meets a wise old beagle named Miles who helps him understand why they aren't getting adopted. Once Farkle learns he has special needs, he worries nobody will ever want him. One day, a rescue lady visits the shelter. Could this be Farkle's chance to find the furever home all shelter dogs dream about?

Based on a true story, Farkle Finds A Furever Home is a rescue tale about love, acceptance, and never giving up hope. Through lighthearted, yet realistic storytelling by first time author and Touch of Grey Rescue Founder Wendy Johnson, readers will learn about pet abandonment, overcrowded shelters, and the need for animal rescue. Farkle's big blocky head and human-like eyes are brought to life through stunning illustrations by Leslie Harrington. Children and adults alike will find themselves rooting for Farkle, while falling in love with his silly, sweet, and sleepy disposition.

A portion of proceeds from every book sale will go to Touch of Grey Rescue, a 501c3 Non-Profit Organization that saves over 100 senior and special needs dogs every year.
