What people are saying...


"Sally Hursey weaves heart and soul into the beautiful, true tale of shelter-dog, Molly, and her journey to becoming an elite member of the K9s for Warriors program. Molly's unbridled loyalty and tender tenacity toward those who train her and love her will grab your heart and won't let go. Though I've read many books about therapy dogs and service dogs, Molly's story rises to the top of my 'favorites' pile. Bravo, Mrs. Hursey - Molly to the Rescue will be on my 'to give' list for years to come." -Donna Earnhardt, Being Frank (Flashlight Press, 2012)

"Molly, we are so proud of you for sharing the story of your journey from a shelter-dog to becoming a veterans's 'Battle Buddy.' Smiling in response to our first touches, nuzzling with those signature whiskers, you stole our hearts and we knew you were destined to become a great service dog. Months later you ran to Adam's open arms, both of your lives changed forever. Thank you, Sally, for giving Molly a voice and shining a light on what these remarkable animals can do for a veteran. We love you, Adam and Molly." -Ann Goodheart, Linda Williams, Mary Ann Merrill, and Meg Gregory (Service Animal Project)
