  • RUFF Riders, Rescue Ur Furever Friend

    Eleven-year-old Olivia Thomas longs for a dog of her own, but her reluctant parents don’t think that she is responsible enough. When she hears about an abandoned dog with a litter of puppies in the forest, she and her friend April, along with their new tech-savvy friend, Quinn, leap into action.

    Teaming up with local volunteer animal rescue Rescue Ur Furever Friend, they work on a plan. Olivia is determined to see the project through, but she’ll have to focus and rally lots of people to help. And they may not succeed. Is she prepared to fail? And if she’s successful, will her parents see that she is ready to take care of a puppy?

    Through teamwork, family, and community, Olivia learns that anything important is worth the effort.
