    A very thoughtfully written book about how to best select an animal companion. Oftentimes, very good-hearted, well-intentioned people adopt pets based solely on emotion. They see a dog or cat that looks “sad” or “lonely,” and decide to take him/her home without really thinking about whether that animal will make a good long-term family addition. This book does a great job of explaining how to make a thoughtful selection.

    Amazon Verified Purchase(What’s this?)

    I work with a dog and cat rescue, in fact, one this book lists on its Find Out More page. I got the book mainly because I heard this rescue’s web site was mentioned.

    When I read it, the whole book, it made me want to cry all over again. So many dogs and cats, not enough homes……

    Gives a very accurate description of the pet over population problem. Talks about what happens to all these unwanted pets and how people all over the country are feverishly trying to stop the problem and find loving homes for the animals.

    He is also very good about explaining the problem with some pet owners, they consider the dog or cat a possession instead of a valued member of the family. He also talks about how to go about picking out the right pet for your family situation and how shelters are trying to make sure the people and the pet are a good match.

    It’s about time a book like this came out. Now maybe if we can get enough kids to read this book, we can start getting a better handle on the pet over population problem and help make sure no dog or cat goes unloved again!
