Local authors and life partners, Julie Weldon and Stacey Pierce, today announced the release of their children’s book Rescued By Rico – a story inspired by their late rescue dog. Filled with playful images by illustrator Tami Boyce, Rescued By Rico is a story about the importance of adopting rescue pets and helping parents guide their children through the difficult transition of a pet crossing the rainbow bridge.
Inspired by the true story of Weldon and Pierce’s dog Rico, the book outlines their journey of saving an abandoned dog from Puerto Rico after a big storm left him without a family or a home. Rico’s kind demeanor and loving ways teach readers the importance of commitment to giving pets a loving home until the pet is ready to join their friends across the rainbow bridge.
Pierce and Weldon worked with Tami Boyce to create the illustrations to capture the personality of the real-life Rico. The authors’ Indiegogo campaign launched today and will run until August 13th, 2020. 50% of the proceeds will go to four different animal rescue charities including the Charleston Animal Society. The books are available in both paperback and hardback ranging from $18 to $30.
“We are absolutely thrilled to introduce Rico to the world,” Weldon and Pierce said. “In the short time we were privileged to have him as a part of our family, he made such an impact on us. We hope to accomplish three purposes with our book Rescued By Rico. First, to highlight how wonderful rescue dogs can be. Second, to help adults navigate the hard conversation about our beloved pets passing over the Rainbow Bridge. And third, to give money to rescue organizations who are doing amazing work.”
The book is available for purchase here.
