"Rescue a dog, and the dog will rescue you. I can vouch for that,
and Peter Zheutlin does a lovely, moving job of exploring the
subject. Rescued is a delightful read."
--Dean Koontz, New York Times bestselling author
"Rescued is a must-read for anyone who has ever experienced the
love of a dog. Peter Zheutlin does a masterful job conveying the
meaning and joy that come from helping a once-homeless animal feel
secure, loved, and part of the family. This beautiful book belongs
on every dog lover's shelf."
--Laura T. Coffey, bestselling author of My Old Dog: Rescued Pets with Remarkable Second Acts
"I loved this book. It eloquently describes the singular joy of
giving a rescue dog one's hearth and heart."
--Lisa Mullins, anchor at WBUR, Boston
"Rescued is a wide-ranging and intensely moving meditation on sharing one's life with adopted dogs. Peter Zheutlin is one of the few journalists who has taken on the complex world of animal rescue and actually gotten it right."
--Bronwen Dickey, author of Pit Bull: The Battle over an American Icon
"In Rescued, Peter shows us that shelter dogs are some of our greatest teachers. Stories about rescue become tales of personal growth, where dogs are given second chances and people are reminded that our best lives are lived when we open our arms to those that need us."
--Jesse Freidin, photographer and author of Finding Shelter
"Will inspire any reader to immediately go out and adopt
as many dogs as possible."
"[An] uplifting look at the power of 'second chance' dogs
to change lives...Tell readers not to fear sad tales; they will
enjoy every moment of this passionate book."
"For readers who might not realize how many dogs are
killed each day for lack of a home, [Rescued] should serve
as a wake-up call and will, I fervently hope, cause them to
consider adopting a rescue dog today."
