A New Job for Pearl was written by Allyn Lee and illustrated by students in Connie Forslind’s second grade class. This is the true story of Pearl, a homeless dog that became part of a search and rescue team through the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation. Pearl traveled to Haiti with Fire Captain Ron Horetski and the California Task Force 2 team. The highly-trained dogs located survivors who could not have been found by humans. Our book was created to raise $10,000 to sponsor the training of a search dog through the National Disaster Search Dog Foundation in Ojai, California.
