Meet The Author of Another Good Dog

08/16/2018 to 08/16/2018

9315 Snowden River Pkwy, Columbia , MD 21046

Join OPH Rescue for a book tour with one of our Fosters/Volunteers who is an author and wrote a book about her experience with rescue. There will be an opportunity to purchase a copy of, Another Good Dog: One Family and Fifty Foster Dogs and have it signed by the author (and possibly some of the dogs featured in the book) at every event. A portion of all book sales are donated to Operation Paws for Homes! Another Good Dog is a warm and entertaining memoir about what happens when you foster fifty dogs in less than two years and how the dogs save you as much as you save them. Filled with humanity and hope, Another Good Dog will take the reader on a journey of smiles, laughs, and tears― and lead us to wonder how many other good dogs are out there and what we can do to help. This is a dog friendly location, and there will be a food truck on sight tonight! For more information, go to www.ophrescue.org.
