Local authors Connie Evans and Marjorie Wentworth, along with their dogs Charlotte and Sawyer, stopped by Fourth Street School in Fulton to provide public awareness of fostering pets and the importance of animal rescue.

During their visit, the authors read “Charlotte’s Big Dream” and “Sawyer’s Promise,” books inspired by the lives of the two dogs in attendance.

During the readings, students were afforded the opportunity to pet the two dogs, creating an understanding of the significance of each book’s message.

The visit came as part of the Reading for Rescue program, which Evans and Wentworth started in 2013 in conjunction with Paws Across Oswego County.

Working with Tails and Tales Publishing, the two local authors collaborated to write children’s books that were both fun and educational.

Each dog featured in their books are former PAOC fosters who have been adopted. PAOC is a non-profit animal rescue established in 2001 to help foster and adopt animals, as well as work with local shelters to provide spay and neuter services.
