Format: Hardcover
After adopting my own puppy from a rescue group I discovered Patrick McDonnell. All his books catch the spirit of the animals and the spirit of connection between animals and their guardians. Add to that the special connection with a rescued animal and you know what love is. Patrick does it again.

Lovely Snippets of love from rescued animals April 21 2008
By AlleyCat Advocat - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
First, I must say, that I have loved the 'Shelter Stories' strip and followed it in the papers: Patrick shows the bittersweet side to working with rescue animals so poignantly, and makes his point in such a sweet way....being a rescue worker myself, it means so much to see the lovely faces of all of these critters, big and small, now living in their furever homes, safe and loved- that is the whole point to what we do- and the photos taken by their adoring owners really capture their personalities and joy these animals have to give, and the love they share with us- and the lessons about life that they teach us. A wonderful gift for ANY animal lover......done very nicely and will be a treasured addition to any pet lovers collection.
Thank you Patrick!!!!!!!!!

A Heartwarming and Delightful book May 29 2008
By M. Pike - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
This is one of the most heart warming and delightful books I have read in a very long time. I laughed and cried, sometimes at the same time. I am the proud person of 4 rescued dogs, 10 rescued cats and the caregiver for a feral cat colony of 13. This book gives me hope knowing there are others out there who love these wonderful animals as much or more than I do. Please don't stop what you do, Patrick. The world is a much better place because of people like you.

Adopt! Adopt! Adopt! May 14 2008
By Jackal - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
I bought this book for my sister who wanted to get a pet for my niece. I am hoping to set her mind 'free' of a set pedigree which she likes.

This book didn't disappoint.

As with all Mutts book, this one has all the wits and love sprouting from Mooch and Earl.

But the central theme of the book is still to adopt a pet from the shelters instead of buying from the pet shops. Pets from shelters are equal if not better than to the ones from pet shops because they come with 100% gratefulness.

It is a very lighted hearted and easy read and I highly recommend it to everyone who is thinking of adopting a pet.

Thank you Patrick for a work of love.

Great Book for Rescues and Shelters June 4 2008
By K. Eaton - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
While some of these strips have been in the paper, this is a great introduction to Patrick McDonnell's gentle way of urging his readers to adopt from shelters and rescues. He never preaches or belabors the point, allowing the reader to come to it through humor (and a little dash of pathos.)
If you love animals, you won't get through this book without laughing and crying.
