An uplifting read about the world of animal rescue. Peter captured the love and dedication and sheer determination that goes on behind the scene of Greg's transport -- the joy and the sadness. May there come a time when society values the lives of animals and healthy animals no longer have to be euthanized.

Should be required reading for adults and older kids, to illuminate for them the huge problem of dog overpopulation in this country, particularly in the south. If everyone made just one-fiftieth of the effort made by these heroes, the problem could be solved.

The animal population is out of control in the southern states and what it takes to rescue even one dog is an incredible undertaking. This is the story of how some of those dogs beat the odds, found forever homes, and what it takes to get them there. Some animal shelters have a euthanasia rate of 80 to 90%. Whether you rescue or buy, I highly recommend this book for anyone who is a dog owner.

Peter came into contact with one of the rescue organizatons and then pursued the story of who, how, and why. The what is rescuing endangered dogs from southern states and transporting them to "forever homes" in the northeast after they have been cleared and treated by vets. The whole concept of how dogs are viewed in the south is so foreign to me (I live in a state where animal abuse is a felony). Sure, we have our share of dumbwits who are too lazy to find a cheap spay clinic, and losers who abandon a pet instead of taking it to a proper facility, but we also have scout programs taking kids to shelters to socialize the animals and learn to be responsible to domestic animals. OK, enough rant. Peter does a ride/work along with the transporter and learns more than he ever wanted to know about transporting 80 dogs in a tricked out semi across country every other week, as well as about shelters in the south and the people called to change things and "save lives 4 paws at a time". If you love dogs, this will be an emotional read. Maybe you will even be moved to help in your own way.

This book reveals the plight of so many homeless dogs in the deep south. It will carry you on an emotional jorney that is as tragic as it is selfless and moving. Hats off to Greg and what he is doing for thousands of dogs who have no hope. He is an inspiration. It is time for the city of Houston to wake up and make some serious changes. There are no excuses.
