WHAT I READ LAST

rescueroad

This was a very hard book to read.  Even though the story of Peter and all the other volunteers that tirelessly work to get dogs out of kill shelters in the south and safe in the north is inspiring and heroic, the huge number of dogs that are abused, abandoned, and euthanized in the south is staggering!  These statistics are mentioned many times throughout the book as Peter and the author visit various shelters and their volunteers on their travels.  If you are interested in any type of rescue work, I highly recommend this book.  It is full of great advice and heart warming stories among tragic stories.

This book interested me because I have done some dog fostering before.  There is also great advice in this book about rescue work.  The author does a great job of being open and honest about her successes and failures as a foster parent to dogs and puppies.  She talks about how having these dogs come and go in her house affected not only herself, her three teenage kids, and husband, but also their resident dog, Gracie.  These are all things to consider before fostering animals.  Overall, this a great book with mostly happy endings and funny moments as the family deals with having sometimes up to 12 puppies in their house.  If you are thinking about fostering, this is a great read.
