But she also shines the light on some unsavory truths about what happens to many dogs, cats, and other domestic animals in America and throughout the world. From the perils of puppy mills and kill shelters to the pain of declawing and tail-docking, pets face many dangers at the hands of humans. Rory inspires her readers to get their head out of their &*^% and shows them how they can help.

“Rory Freedman speaks Dog — and Cat and Cow and Guinea Pig. In Beg, she translates the barks, the moos, and the looks in those innocent eyes so we get the message: These beings matter more than we ever dreamed, first to their autonomous selves, but also to our very humanity. And she does this in writing so crisp, honest, and engaging that you won't put this book down — at least not until it's time to walk the dog.” Victoria Moran, bestselling author of Main Street Vegan and Creating a Charmed Life
“Ready to make love an action verb? Beg is your essential handbook.” Lisa Bloom, New York Times bestselling author of Think and Swagger

“Rory Freedman’s Beg is a call to arms for anyone who considers themselves an animal lover. In this seamless follow-up to her Skinny Bitch series, Freedman highlights a world that is rarely seen.
