Proceeds of local author’s first book donated to PAOC for animal rescue efforts

New author Connie Evans has joined with Tails and Tales to publish Charlotte’s Big Dream, the true story of her rescue dog.

Connie teamed up with local illustrator Jim Arnold to portray Charlotte’s story from the time she was outdoors, homeless, cold and hungry searching for her new family to her adoption by a new mom.

By telling Charlotte’s story, Connie hopes to help others understand that shelter dogs are not broken.

“They are wise, wonderful friends and you should be honored to have one by your side,” she said. “I want people to know that Charlotte’s story is not unique; it is every shelter dog’s story — the story of the redemptive power of love.”

Connie has owned Dayle’s Dog Grooming since 1994, and works tirelessly to support Paws Across Oswego County, PAOC in their efforts to help homeless animals. Charlotte was one of the lucky ones and now she is paying it forward.

Proceeds from the sales of her book are being donated to PAOC.

Charlotte will join Connie and Jim at a book signing at Sunset RV Park, 61 County Route  89 in Oswego, across from Rudy’s and Bev’s on October 20 from 2 to 4 p.m.

Refreshments will be served. Come meet author and artist and have your photo taken with Charlotte!
