Author John Snow Wants to Teach Kids How to Care for Animals


Brisbane, Queensland — Author Jon Snow’s new book being released on the 3rd of June 2018 by ABC Publishing International, “The Adventures of Dogs – The Rescue,” aims to teach children how to look after animals to aid in development of vital skills.

Inspired to write because of his grandchildren’s love of books and he and his wife’s love of fostering animals, the book introduces children to fostering a pet and tells a story of the rescue of a lost puppy.

“I hope that when a child sees a stray dog or cat, that they think about the story and how the puppy, Mr. Pupples, was found and saved,” says Snow. “Once a child finds a stray animal, their next step is to immediately get an adult involved.”

An avid dog-lover who with his wife, Jane, has fostered about 50 dogs over a period of 5 years, Snow is retired and cherishes their two dogs that they had originally fostered, and a cat that had been a stray kitten. He says fostering animals from your local animal shelter is a good way to keep them from being euthanized.

“Pets are great companions. Not only are they fun to be with, they can help you get exercise,” say Snow who enjoys taking his dogs for walks with his wife. “And, who loves you more than your dog?”

“I think children will love this beautifully illustrated story with a great message about pet care,” said ABC Publisher Jane Smith.

You can purchase “The Adventures of Dogs– The Rescue” at It sells for $16.95. Snow says he has written two more children’s books with the same two characters. They will be released at a later date.


Jon Snow retired after a long career in sales, marketing and advertising. He lives with his wife, Jane, and their two and one cat. Together, Snow and his wife, have three children and four grandchildren.
