The story of 35 rescue dogs finding home.
Finding Home, by Traer Scott, is an elegant tribute to man’s best-friend and simultaneously a emotional portrait of shelter dogs. Candid pictures and profiles on thirty-five dogs make this book an eloquent plea for the adoption and welfare of our furry companions.
Meet Molly, Nanook and Flynn.
Flynn, is a large, playful young pit bull/lab mix. He was found as a stray and, like most young energetic dogs struggled with shelter life. Despite daily walks with volunteers and playtime outside, he became hyperactive and anxious in his kennel. Thankfully it only took two months for him to be adopted.
Nanook, named by shelter staff after the dog in the 1978 film The Lost Boys, is a brindle pit bull mix. He was found as a stray playing in a parking lot. He was untrained and badly behaved, but after several months of “boot camp” staff saw a softer side to him and he was adopted into a wonderful home.
Molly, a super-affectionate senior golden retriever was separated from her owner of ten years after she was forced to move into a retirement home that did not allow pets. Molly was in the shelter for two week, before being adopted by a man with disabilities and his family.
