A really depressing book. The description of the conditions in shelters and people's attitudes to dogs in the southern U.S. were heartbreaking.

It's heartbreaking to learn of how many sweet-spirited dogs are put to death "unwanted, unknown and unloved." But it's profoundly moving to learn of the countless kind human beings who go to great lengths to make sure thousands are saved from this fate. My dog enjoyed me reading this book. He received extra doses of love and affection for days.

Good luck reading this and not having it break your heart and cry. This is one bunch of dedicated workers, mostly volunteers saving the lives of dogs living in horrific conditions in the south. Rescuing as many as they can moving them to forever homes in the northeast.
