Each year hundreds of thousands of pet owners across the nation are faced with the decision to end their pet’s life and suffering when the cost of life-saving treatment is outside their financial means. The true story of Brown Dog follows Chocolate Chip, a brown Labrador retriever-mix, whose life and passing motivated his person to make a difference in the lives of other pet owners and their pets.

Join local author Len Napoli for a reading of his touching and inspiring book Brown Dog, then stay for a Q&A and book signing.

At age four, Chip was surrendered by his family to a pet rescue group because his owners couldn’t afford to remove tumors that had developed. “When Carol adopted Chip, she lamented to the rescue group, ‘it’ a shame there is isn’t an organization who could have helped his family pay for the care he needed so they could keep him.’ Never did she expect to one day experience the same scenario herself.

“Through Chip’s journey, Carol came to learn that hundreds of thousands of pet owners across the nation are faced with the decision to end their pet’s life and suffering when the cost of life-saving treatment is outside their financial means. For these families that final decision is brutal. Carol, fresh with the pain of facing this same decision, created Brown Dog Foundation. And just like that, families have an alternative.” The Brown Dog Foundation and book have inspired many to do good work and he will inspire you too.
