NEW LIVES: Stories of Rescued Dogs Helping, Healing and Giving Hope

We have a great giveaway today for 7 lucky readers! New Lives: Stories of Rescued Dogs Helping, Healing and Giving Hope is a great new book that celebrates rescue dogs.

It tells of 18 dogs who were rescued from shelters and the streets, who are now performing miracles in animal therapy and as service dogs The foreword is written by Dr. Marty Becker (Chicken Soup for the Pet Lover’s Soul), and cover endorsements are from both the ASPCA and the Humane Society.

The author says:

While writing this book, my eyes were opened to how many truly amazing animal shelters and organizations are making a difference. I also discovered the negative affects this slow global economy has caused for these groups. The animal shelters/organizations who are hurting the most aren’t the large national groups. It’s the small local or shelters and organizations that are really struggling right now.

We agree with her, and were really happy to find out that she hosted a contest in the past to help highlight and bring attention to that issue. We hope that you will consider donating time, goods, or money, to your local rescue/shelter to help homeless pets.

    All our pets, 3 dogs and a cat have all been adopted from shelters, rescued from being put down, missing out on a great life. They have added so much joy to our family. Thank you for supporting rescue.

  2. Sue says:

    Our dogs have always been rescues and are the most loving wonderful pets! They seem so grateful because they know that they’ve gotten a second chance. It’s nice that there is a book that shows what rescue dogs are capable of.

    Being in Rescue and also a long time dog owneer, I was happy to see a book that addresses how much we, as humans, get back from our rescued dogs. It shows how dogs who someone gave up on, turned out to be such a treasure. This is a book I would love to have and to share with others.

    This books sounds wonderful…
    I am a fundraiser for a Norwegian Elkhound rescue and own now and have owned rescue dogs…rescued dogs and how/what they over come are very special indeed.
    Would love to have copies of this book to donate to people who rescue our elkhounds in need.

    Our rescue gal Suzie is the best dog ever-she was rescued by the norwegian elkhound group JNMF, treated for heartworm, and flown to me. She is now
    a “creature teacher” for the local human society which means she helps out
    at special events. She loves it-and I love her!

    How wonderful that a book has been written about the amazing acts of rescue dogs! Plus bringing to light the challenges small rescue groups are faced with. Rescue dogs are wonderful!

    Thank you so much for writing this wonderful book for our fuzzy friends.
    We just rescued a beautiful loving standard poodle who was severely abused. From what I am told this precious pup was injured then stuck in a cage where she was unable to stand. Her legs are very crippled and she walks with a scoot. It makes me sick just to type this.
    She now lives with us in the lap of luxury with full freedom of the house and large fenced yard. I have taken her on light swims and get in the lake with her. She loves it.
    We are taking her to WSU Vet School to see if anything can be done for her legs. One local vet has said she may not be able to be corrected by surgery.
    Either way, she will be in our loving home forever.
