A Harrison County author Jeanine Grant Lister’s latest book “Halligan the Wonder Dog: The Store of a Pit Bull and the Organization that Saved Her: is now available on Amazon and Kindle. Beginning Aug. 23 the book will also be available at 122 E. Pike St., in the law and CPA offices of Kelli Mulberry. Half the profits from the sale of the book will benefit Cynthiana charity Helping Hounds Find Homes, Inc. (HHFH), a 501(c)3 public charity.
The author will sign books from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. at Mulberry’s office on Pike Street during the Cynthiana Rod Run.
The book tells the story of how Lister came to foster a pit bull mix dog - named Halligan by the author’s youngest daughter, Ciara - and the madcap adventures that the author and her family experienced in the year that Halligan has lived with them; beyond that, though, the book relates the story, mission and adventures that family members have had as volunteers for Helping Hounds Find Homes, Inc.
HHFH was founded in 2011 to help save dogs from being euthanized at the Flora Shropshire Animal Shelter here in Harrison County. The book tells the story of the public charity and what it does to save dogs by transporting them to Chicago, Ill., where animal rescue groups there give the transported dogs good and loving homes.
The paperback version of Halligan the Wonder Dog sells for $18 on Amazon and locally. The Kindle edition is $3.99.
