A Place for Grace
by Martha Mosley
Illustrated by Rhonda Van
Grace is a once-loved older dog who finds herself in the shelter, alone and confused. How did this happen? She soon realizes that puppies and young dogs are being chosen while she is being passed by. After some misguided attempts to act like a puppy, she becomes discouraged.
Can Grace once again be recognized for the wonderful family member she is? Dogs like Grace have so much to offer, and her story can help families make the life-affirming choice of an older dog.
A Place for Grace includes testimonials from rescuers who have personally chosen older dogs. Endorsed by Doreen Jakubcak, the founder of Marty’s Place, it also features photos of some of the dogs at her sanctuary.
A Place for Grace is perfect for ages 6 and up, and includes gorgeous full-color illustrations by Rhonda Van.
