Pointy Pembleton is here!

Desperately needed dollars for rescue greyhounds via crowd funding

Dog lovers are invited to help raise dollars for rescue greyhounds by pre-ordering new Australian children’s picture book via an exciting, new crowdfunding campaign, launching today on Chuffed.org

The campaign will fund the production of Pointy Pembleton Visits the Dog Park which is about a gregarious greyhound character who shows children how to accept others that may be a little different.

“We are two Greyhound Rescue volunteers who want to use our skills to raise funds in an innovative and fun new way. Pointy Pembleton teaches children that friendship can sometimes take you by surprise,” said Nat Panzarino, author.

Nat, an English teacher and mother of two, and Fer Wicker, illustrator, have teamed up to bring Pointy Pembleton – picture book hero – to life on the pages of a whimsical, beautifully written book with gorgeous watercolour illustrations.

“We want to use our skills, not only raise funds for dogs in desperate need, but also to raise awareness about greyhounds as family pets. They are wonderful, gentle dogs and they make amazing family pets,” said Fer.

The campaign aims to raise $15,000 to print, market and distribute 2,000 copies of the book. Money from the sale of each book will be donated to Greyhound Rescue Inc.

There are thousands of greyhounds who are unloved, without a family of their own. “No longer wanted by the racing industry, most greyhounds are simply killed. This is referred to by the industry as ‘wastage’,” said Nat.

Rescue, rehabilitation and re-homing of retired racing greyhounds in an expensive undertaking.

“Ongoing funds are required for organisations like Greyhound Rescue to continue finding loving homes. These dogs deserve as much love as a poodle or a pug or a chihuahua,” said Fer.
