Introducing Charlie at the Pom Springs Hotel! Our new children’s book launching this fall!
A portion of the proceeds from every sale ($1 USD) will be donated to support animal welfare and rescue organizations.
Based on the true story of our founder, Lara Eurdolian King and her husband, James who traveled to Palm Springs on vacation, where they unexpectedly meet Charlie; a senior Pomeranian dog living in the lobby of their hotel up for adoption.
Charlie at the Pom Springs Hotel is a timeless “tail” of love, friendship, and dog adoption. With stunning illustrations and a message showing that a family is a family, no matter what it looks like, this book is sure to capture the heart of every young reader—and even adults too!
Charlie was dog #42 to be rescued through the hotels pet adoption program, where they partner with a local animal shelter and let one dog live in the lobby, and when it gets rescued a new dog moves in. The property has helped hundreds of dogs get rescued.
The children’s book is about Charlie, the tour guide at the ‘Pom Springs Hotel’ who helps show families around the property, all the while looking to be adopted and find his forever family. During his tours he introduces the hotel guests to his animal friends that all have unique blended families. The turtles live with the bunnies, the swans live with the ducks and their ducklings… illustrating through animals, Charlie and his friends teach the kids that there are all different types of families.
All of the animals are based on real characters that lived or regularly visited the property.
Our dream is to inspire more hotels and doorman buildings to open their lobbies and join paws with local shelters to foster animals and get more involved with events to help them find their forever home.
If you work with a hotel or building that offers 24/hour security continue fostering a dog and letting guests/residents walk them to help socialize the animal and hopefully adopt them.
