Adopting Dixie inspires a 15-year-old auteur

Check out this segment from Today featuring Emma Jackson, the remarkable 15-year-old author of A Home for Dixie: The True Story of a Rescued Puppy. The book tells the story of how Emma adopted a dog from Petfinder member Aunt Mary’s Doghouse in Montclair, NJ. When Emma learned about the plight of homeless pets, she made it her mission to tell the world — and especially kids — about the benefits of adoption.

Best of all, part of the proceeds from this sweet children’s book benefit Aunt Mary’s Doghouse!
