Reader’s Favorite Review Excerpt:
Val Silver has indeed captured my heart with this wonderful book, Rescue Me. It is full of different remarkable stories about giving a dog a second chance. The one thing that shines through each story is the clear connection of love and devotion in each case. I personally found this book to be like a little ray of sunshine and no dog is beyond saving. There were clearly some very devoted fosters and owners in this book. They all relate with their unique story to how a dog has changed their lives for the better. I especially liked the story of how the older dogs were given a second chance. I found it very moving and my all-time favourite has to be the Beagle they call Lollipop with the broken jawbone. What a lovely little character and a symbol of hope. I recommend all to read this heart-warming collection of stories and help donate to an animal shelter by knowing where the proceeds from this book are going. Read the full review here.

Thank you, Readers Favorite, for choosing Rescue Me as an award winner, and all of you for your continued support in our mission to help homeless dogs and advocate for animals.
I’m so glad I went to the Awards Ceremony in Miami. It was great fun. We got to go the the Book Fair, make new friends, and celebrate together.
