October is Adopt-a-Dog Month

October is Adopt-a-Dog Month, and you will find many books on pet rescue in the Pets Neighborhood.

Love at First Bite: How Saving a Dog Can Sometimes Help You  Save Yourself is one of those books. Author Julie Klam writes  about rescuing troubled dogs and how those dogs end up  saving their owners. Julie describes how she finds homes for a  very sweet pit bull, a special-needs terrier, and a stray who  was about ready to be run over by a train. She discovers how   saving dogs can put our own troubles in perspective.

Shelter Puppies by Michael Kloth provides photographs of over 60 shelter puppies waiting for adoption. He highlights the fact that there is a growing number of shelter dogs who need to find good homes. What better way to do that then through photos of adorable shelter puppies?

If you are thinking about adopting a dog and want to read more about pet adoption, come to the Pets Nieghborhood. You will find these two books and many more.
