"Scott's black-and-white portraits give these dogs a poignancy and
gravitas they deserve." -- Shelf Awareness
"The dogs that stare out at readers from the pages of Scott's book are haunting. Scott also tells the stories of how each animal ended up in a shelter. Do yourself a favor. Read Finding Home, then go out and adopt a shelter dog." - Chicago Tribune
"Photographer Traer Scott follows up her groundbreaking book Shelter Dogs with a new work of equal grace and sensitivity. The portraits in Finding Home not only showcase a collection of canines with indomitable character and spirit, they are also an eloquent plea for more adoptive families, and a tribute to all dogs everywhere." - The Bark
