RORY the Rescue Dog - It’s All About The Adventure
Rory the Rescue Dog is based on some true adventures and happenings experienced by myself and my wonderful rescue dogs, Rory and Laddie. I am a musician and part-time instrumental teacher living in Gloucestershire with my dogs and various other creatures (some invited, some not!). For some years I have worked in a number of primary and secondary schools as a peripatetic piano and woodwind teacher. As such I am keen to encourage children to have fun, interact with their peers or family members, and to generally get involved in reading, music and the arts.
Rory the Rescue Dog not only provides a 'good read', including educational content, but it also contains songs, poems and a dance that can be read or performed singly or as part of a group.

Free Music downloads
I have written original music to accompany some of these songs, aimed at those who like to sing or are learning to play a musical instrument (the sheet music and audio backing are available as pdf and mp3 files from the website).
Song & Dance
Rory the Rescue Dog not only provides a 'good read', but it also contains songs, rap, poems, a two-person play and a fun dance with the Haggis Song and Dance Band.
Donation to charity
A percentage of each sale is being donated to Cheltenham Animal Shelter, for whom I'd like to thank for letting me have Rory and Laddie in the first place!
Loved the book!
“I absolutely loved reading Rory the Rescue Dog. This is not your typical children’s book about a dog. Paula Towers’ Rory is delightfully reminiscent of the books I read as a child - books that frightened me at times, charmed me at other times, but always, always entertained me. Read Rory the Rescue Dog and I promise you will beg for more. Rory is a very special dog, and Paula is a very special author”
Paul M Howey
“Very hard to put down and not go to the next adventure. The stories and writing let your mind and imagination travel with characters to their adventures and shows their love for one another. Rory is truly an exceptional dog. If anyone from Disney is reading this, he should be a star in your next movie. A great read for any age. ”
- George Guiver
“This is a fabulous book full of fun and adventure and it warms the heart as well. It is ideal for all children, those who love dogs and those who just love a good story. The music and songs are clever and well written and definitely make this book a ‘must have’. ”

“I loved this book! It’s beautifully written and put together and the songs are brilliant! I recommend this for any dog-lover big or small!”
