Description
A challenging foster dog inspires an experienced foster mama to explore where the endless stream of unwanted dogs is coming from--and how things could change. After nearly a year struggling to find a home for a particular foster dog, Cara begins to wonder how the story ends--when will all the dogs be saved? Even after the one-hundredth foster dog passes through Cara's home, the stream of homeless dogs appears endless. Seized by the need to act, Cara grabs her best friend, fills a van with donations, and heads south to discover what is really happening in the rural shelters where her foster dogs originate. What she discovers will break her heart and compel her to share the story of heroes and villains and plenty of good dogs, in the hope of changing this world. From North Carolina where pit bulls fill the shelters and heart-worm rages to Tennessee where dogs are left forgotten in pounds and on to Alabama where unlikely heroes fight in a state that has largely forsaken its responsibilities to its animals, Cara meets the people working on the front lines in this national crisis of unwanted animals. The dogs, the people and their inspiring stories draw her south again and again in search of answers and maybe a dog of her own. One Hundred Dogs and Counting will introduce the reader to many wonderful dogs--from sweet Oreo to quirky Flannery--but also to inspirational people sacrificing personal lives and fortunes to save deserving animals. Join Cara on the rescue road as she follows her heart into the places where too many dogs are forgotten and discovers glimmers of hope that the day is coming when every dog will have a home.
