I am a huge animal lover. Huge. While I love most animals, I am really very partial to dogs. I am also a really big supporter of shelters and everything that they do for the animal population. My house is pretty filled with animals from my local shelter. We currently have 3 dogs and 1 cat that were all adopted from our local Humane Society.
I don't know why but I love looking at the photos of dogs waiting for their forever homes. We adopted 2 puppies from the Humane Society during the last few months of 2015 largely because of this. My husband has now banned me from the Humane Society's website. Like he can actually stop me. So I look and always feel a little sad that they are there waiting to find someone to love them as much as I love mine.
I kind of feel like this book was made just for me. Each page brought me wonderful pictures of great looking dogs along with a few tidbits about the animal. And the best part.....almost all of these dogs have found their happily ever after! I really loved the last section of the book that showed some of the animals now. Sometimes they were alone, sometimes with their new doggie siblings, and sometimes with their human family but they always looked really very happy.
I would highly recommend this book to animal lovers like myself. I think that it is absolutely wonderful that a portion of the proceeds from this book will go to the Humane Society of Utah and Best Friends Animal Society. I applaud the author for all of the time that she has making sure so many shelter animals have a wonderful photo to help them in their search for a forever family. Sometimes all it takes it a photo to fall in love. I received an advance reader edition of this book from Andrews McMeel Publishing via NetGalley for the purpose of providing an honest review.Initial Thoughts
Awesome little book filled with photos of shelter dogs. How can a dog lover like me pass this one up?!?!
