Watching this video brought so many tears. Mostly happy but hate to hear what they all go through. I am so glad when the people that abuse these dogs get punished. Coming from Maui and being a volunteer we see so many Pit Bulls. They are all wonderful dogs and deserve so much more than a bad rap. They all need love and a good home so they can have a life like other dogs. Thanks for all you do for them.

A great book about rescue dogs was released this week.  PetsitUSA was fortunate to receive an advanced copy of Miracle Dogs: Rescue Stories by Liz Stavrinides.  There are many stories of how amazing rescue dogs can be for pet owners and even other pets.  The book starts out strong by telling how a rescue dog changed the lives of an autistic boy and his family.  The inspirational stories continue, including how a rescue dog can help someone recover from the loss of a loved one.  Each story is accompanied by photos taken personally by the author.  An official description is below.  You can purchase the book here.

Miracle Dogs celebrates and honors the rescuers and the dogs whose lives they’ve saved. It features wonderful stories and photographs of dog rescuers, dog trainers, and rescue organizations such as The Gentle Barn and Tamar Geller’s Operation Heroes and Hounds, along with celebrity pet owners such as Chevy Chase, Hoda Kotb, Bob Einstein, Amanda Hearst, Jamie Lynn Siegler, and Lance Bass. Each story includes portraits of the dog and its new family, followed by a concise, compelling narrative detailing the dog’s journey to its new home.

A professional pet photographer, Liz Stavrinides spends much of her time on projects  related to animal rescue. Miracle Dogs was born out of her desire to collect and share the stories of the dogs she’s met over the years, showcasing the incredible bravery and compassion of both canines and owners.
