Austin Brown Dogs

I'm making a book, but I need your help to make it happen!

Austin is the largest no-kill city in the United States, and for many of us, our fur families are as near and dear as our biological families. In particular, it’s the rescue dogs—with all their quirks and neuroses and their boundless capacity for love—that enchant us most.

AUSTIN BROWN DOGS: THE SHELTER DOGS WHO RESCUE US, created in collaboration with Weeva, celebrates that incredible bond between Austinites and our rescue dogs. Through stories and photos of more than 70 Austin-area rescue dogs, this book illuminates the intimate stories of all the ways the dogs we’ve saved have changed our lives.

Production and printing of Austin Brown Dogs will be funded by donations from local dog lovers, and a 70 percent of the net proceeds will support local rescue dogs.

Please visit my website to learn more about the project and find out how you can get involved.

I appreciate every single donation, and I'd love to say thanks!
