Maverick and Me | Teaching Kids About Pet Adoption
Katherine Schwarzenegger got involved in animal rescue by fostering puppies. She’s a “foster fail” parent of Maverick, a very sick puppy that was found under a freeway. Katherine hopes her book, Maverick and Me, can spark conversations among young children and their families about animals in need and choose to adopt a pet.
“I decided to write this book for children so they are made aware of the option of adopting when the time comes to get their first pet.” – Katherine Schwarzenegger
Katherine Schwarzenegger is a philanthropist and ASPCA Ambassador. Katherine and the real Maverick live in California, where Katherine blogs about their adventures. Together, Maverick and Katherine spread a message of hope, defying all odds, and the joys of finding forever friends through pet rescue.

“My goal with this book is to not only teach kids about the option of rescuing a dog but also about all the ways they can help the many animals in need. Whether you rescue, foster, spend time volunteering, donate supplies or just spread the word about the thousands of loving animals that need to find their forever homes; all of it is important and makes a huge difference in the lives of all these special animals.”
– Katherine Schwarzenegger
