Happy Tails Books is proud to be known as the country’s leading publisher of short stories about rescued and adopted animals. The company was founded to raise awareness and funding for rescue organizations, but today our books are so much more: a source of entertainment and valuable information for animal lovers, an outlet for foster and “forever” parents to honor and immortalize their beloved pets, and a fountain of strength for those who have found themselves in the “biz” of rescue for whatever reason (people generally don’t seek out animal advocacy; in most cases it tends to find them, as you’ll see in many of these stories).
We are excited to offer an abbreviated version of our Lost Souls: FOUND! books through this new series, Two-Buck Tails. This special outreach project brings to life the joy, hope, and (occasional) chaos accompanying rescue and adoption in a manner that is affordable and easy to read. Nevertheless, don’t be fooled by the title... These stories are priceless!
If you are new to the concept of rescue, we hope these stories will inspire you to get involved, be it by volunteering, adopting, or donating. If you’re already “in the know,” we hope these tales will reaffirm your devotion to the cause. After all, if we don’t help them, who will?
Happy Tails Books is driven by a passion to help needy animals by raising awareness about adoption and the proper care of domestic dogs and cats. We are grateful to our volunteer photographers and editors who help us make these books come to life. Happy Tails Books donates up to 25% of gross profits back to rescue organizations. Any rescue enrolled in our rescue partner program is eligible for a donation from each sale made through this website. You can indicate your favorite rescue on the check-out form when you make a purchase. Since 2009, Happy Tails Books has published more than 1,000 stories from people who have fostered and/or adopted dogs and cats!
Co-editors Kyla Duffy and Lowrey Mumford are dog lovers who have been publishing the Lost Souls: FOUND! series since 2009. Lowrey knows journalism, and Kyla has experience in entrepreneurship; this has created the perfect synergy for the Happy Tails Books project. Lowrey and Kyla have two adopted dogs each, and they continue to support the rescues in their communities.read more
