Publisher Comments:

Until one has loved an animal, one's soul remains unawakened." --Anatole France

This book is a credit to [Patrick McDonnell's] life's work and passion, and I know you will enjoy it and be moved by it." --Wayne Pacelle, President and CEO, The Humane Society of the United States

Patrick McDonnell's MUTTS is up there with Peanuts, Pogo, Krazy Kat, and Calvin and Hobbes--cartoons that are smart and funny, brilliantly drawn, and full of heart." --Matt Groening, The Simpsons creator

To me, MUTTS is exactly what a comic strip should be" --Charles Schulz, Peanuts creator

MUTTS creator Patrick McDonnell pairs his heartwarming "Shelter Stories" strips with real-life, fan-submitted testimonials and photographs to provide an emotionally gratifying look into the lives of the millions of rescue animals adopted into loving homes each year. In this emotive collection, McDonnell spotlights stories of animal rescue submitted by fans across the nation.

More than 70 full-color photographs of adopted pets-including cute and cuddly dogs, cats, bunnies, guinea pigs, birds, and ferrets-are featured alongside more than 100 of McDonnell's popular MUTTS "Shelter Stories" strips. Also included is an authoritative reference section with an Adoption Guide and resourceful links that encourage readers to, as McDonnell writes, "Adopt some love today."

Synopsis:

'\'\\\'
Nearly 75 million dogs live with American families, where many sleep in our beds, walk us to school, and eat our unwanted broccoli. However, millions of dogs are born in America each year without a place to live. Most of these animals find themselves in shelters, and many, if they are not adopted, are put to sleep. Raymond Bial takes readers into the genesis of the dog overpopulation problem, covering puppy mills, pet stores, and backyard breeders, and then he profiles a local animal shelter, sharing with readers the ins and outs of daily life there. Who runs animal shelters? Who plays with the pets? How long do they stay? And how can you adopt one?

Synopsis:

Dogs have been mans best friend for thousands and thousands of years, acting as companion, hunting partner and protector in a relationship that has benefitted both parties. Nowadays, nearly 75 million dogs have homes with American families, where many sleep in your beds, accompany you to school, and eat your unwanted broccoli at the dinner table. However, millions of dogs are born in the United States each year without a place to live. Many of these animals find themselves in shelters, and many, if they are not adopted, are put to sleep. Rescuing Rover takes readers into the heart of the dog overpopulation problem. Covering puppy mills, pet stores and backyard breeders, author and photographer Raymond Bial does not shy away from the grim realities of this crisis. Where do all these dogs come from? Why arent there enough homes? Why should you not buy a pet from a pet store? What does it mean to be a puppy mill dog?

But then he takes readers into a local animal shelter and shares with them the ins and outs of daily life there. Who runs animal shelters? Where do the pets come from? How long do they stay? Who plays with the cats and feeds the dogs? And most importantly, how can you adopt one? With captivating images and in straightforward prose, Rescuing Rover is an introduction to what it is like to be a homeless pet in America, and a call to arms.
