Heart-wrenching and heart-warming
As a former shelter worker, I can attest: Marilee Geyer and Diane Leigh have put together probably the best snapshot of life (and death) in a typical US animal shelter. The stories of these animals are at once moving, sweet, heart- breaking, anger-inspiring and joyful. How we treat the animals in our lives is the clearest window into our souls. In unblinking, no-holds-barred prose, Geyer and Leigh tell the stories of these animals-- forgotten, abused, abandoned--and the people who care for them. If you're thinking of adopting an animal, buy this book. If you're thinking of buying a dog or cat rather than adopting from a shelter, buy this book first. If you're anyone who has ever shared your life with a companion animal, buy this book.

Finally a realistic view!!!
This book finally gives a realistic view about what happens in our country's animal shelters. I loved that the authors gave credit to and accounted for every animal that passed through the shelter. Everyone should read this book in order to get a clear view of the pet overpopulation problem. This book gives names, faces and emotion to all animals that end up in shelters and helps show that they are living creatures, not just property that can be dispelled of at will.Was this review helpful?
