Donna Carr Roberts’ current and upcoming books in the “Mr. Fuzzy Ears” series delight children and discuss the impact humane societies and rescue adoptions have on animals and people

"The Adventures of Mr. Fuzzy Ears: Searching for a Furry Friend" by Donna Carr Roberts.

Companionship and the importance of adopting rescue animals are the main themes in author and artist Donna Carr Roberts’ adorable “Mr. Fuzzy Ears” series.

The first installment, entitled “The Adventures of Mr. Fuzzy Ears: Searching for a Furry Friend”, tells the story of a furry small dog called Mr. Fuzzy Ears. The playful pup is lonely in the house by himself and goes looking for a companion. In the end, Mr. Fuzzy Ears’ owners bring home three new friends from the humane society. The tiny dog is overjoyed to have companions to share his life with.

Roberts’ overall inspiration from the book drew from her late dogs, Scamp and Izzy, two rescues that had an impact on her own life. “Even though I miss my babies every day, I think it’s so important to speak to children about what happens to their animals when they cross the rainbow bridge,” Roberts said. “We also have to speak to children about the significant work humane societies and rescue societies do with animals to pair them with suitable homes.”

She is currently working on two new “Mr. Fuzzy Ears” books; the second, “The Adventures of Mr. Fuzzy Ears: The Mystery of the Missing Bunnies” is slated for release January.
