Adopt A Special Needs Dog

Stenetta Anthony Author Interview

A Home for Sally follows a little puppy who is left in a shelter and struggling to get adopted because she is missing a paw and cannot run. What was the inspiration for your story?

Inspiration for A Home for Sally came from a place of concern. I would often view stories about pet adoption, however most of them would not feature a special needs puppy. This caused me to consider and then write about a canine with a disability bringing attention to this animal. Which was considered as not adoptable.

What were the morals you were trying to capture while creating your characters?

The morals I am sharing in A Home for Sally is to never give up and encourage people to adopt a special needs dog.

What were some ideas that were important for you to share in this book?

Some concepts which were important for me was to have empathy for others, although we may look different we are all lovable, learning to accept the differences in each other. and the friendship we can have with a pet.

What is the next book that you are working on and when will it be available?

My next book release is part of a series, and the primary character is Ella the Elephant. The first book in this series is entitled, Ella Learns to Dance is scheduled for release in December 2022.
