DOGLAND

For a country whose citizens dramatically underestimate the number of healthy dogs euthanized in shelters nationwide, for rescue groups desperately working to save canine lives, and for everyone who loves dogs, Dogland blends a heartwarming rescue story with a compelling investigation of a region—and country—in crisis. And it offers us all a way out.

100% of the proceeds from Dogland will be donated to the animal welfare programs profiled in the book. Buy it at Amazon, Barnes and Noble and Kobo.
