Rescue Me! Mackin Books in Bloom celebrates books about shelter dogs
Posted on July 20th, 2012 by pajamapress
Rob Laidlaw, long-time animal advocate and international champion of dogs, provides information about the challenges dogs face around the world. With examples from Canada, Japan, India, and several other countries in addition to the United States, he exposes the plight of these abandoned and often abused animals. Urging readers to get involved, he relates the stories of children and young people around the globe who saw a problem and became Dog Champions. Kids have created documentaries, raised money, and helped to make lawmakers aware of dog abuse. This book is great for reluctant readers, dog lovers, or kids who need to do a service project.
