Freddy the Dogged Rescuer
- About the Author & Illustrator
- There is a new member in the household! Freddy and his family have adopted Wally, a Singapore Special, from the Home for Paws. While Wally is adjusting to his new home, Freddy receives news that the shelter has been forced to relocate...or shut down. Covid-19 restrictions makes fundraising an extra-challenging task, but the ever eager Freddy rallies friends, both old and new, to help raise awareness for the cause and find the pups a new home.
The story is inspired by real events.
“Heartwarming and inspiring. A delightful read for any dog lover.”
—Darren Lim, author of the Ace Agent Spycat series
