~Rescue Me~

Tales of Rescuing the Dogs Who Became Our Teachers, Healers and
Always Faithful Friends

Are you a dog lover with a soft spot in your heart for homeless dogs? Do you love stories sharing how they are saved, adopted and loved back to emotional and physical health? Can you relate to how these precious dogs bring so much joy and healing to our lives that we find ourselves asking, “Who rescued who?”.

If so, the 12 stories in Rescue Me are for you. These stories tell tales that will have you sometimes laughing, sometimes crying. They may anger you and, as more than one reader has said, will “restore your faith in humanity.”  Profits from the Rescue Me books benefit animals in shelters and rescues.

What Readers are Saying about Rescue Me

Author Val Silver and her fellow Team Rescue contributors have compiled a spectrum of amusing, touching, rescued dog stories that demonstrate the power of the human-animal bond, the wondrous ability of animals to heal us, and the resiliency of animals that rewards our efforts… I heartily recommend Rescue Me. ~Jim Willis, author, animal advocate, and former World Animal Day Ambassador for the United States

…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… I personally found this book to be like a little ray of sunshine and no dog is beyond saving. I recommend all to read this heart-warming collection of stories…” ~Reviewed By Lisa Jones for Readers’ Favorite

Rescue Me is a beautiful journey of truth. It…paints the image that the greatest teachers may come in the form of the simple dog, thrown away by others…a must read by everyone. ~Megan Blake, actress, The Pet Lifestyle Coach ®, Pet Life Radio, Animal Attractions TV

I have been involved in dog rescue and dog training for over 35 years. I fell in love with Rescue Me instantly. It is not only heartwarming, but it is a very needed reminder that there are incredible dogs out there that not only need saving, but can bring such joy, love and healing to their new family…~Jean Owen, NJ Fix My Dog

Biscuit the Do-Over Dog

Biscuit~the Do-Over Dog is a true dog rescue tale about a stray dog who needed a lot of help and a second chance at life. This story takes you on a journey with Biscuit from kill shelter to a new life as a fully trained service dog. Biscuit’s tale is a short story adapted for children and pre-teens from her original story featured in Rescue Me.

This e-book version of Biscuit’s story is written at the 5th-6th grade reading level and features color photos and maps to engage younger readers throughout the story. It also gently educates children about how and why rescue groups save dogs in shelters. This book is intended to help children and adults develop awareness and sensitivity to the needs of homeless dogs, and to provide a window into the world of rescue.

Rescue Me Seniors

Are you a senior dog lover or guardian? Do stories of seniors being rescued, rehomed and loved to their last days tug on your heartstrings? If so, then Rescue Me Seniors is for you. This book is a compilation of five senior rescue dog stories originally published in Rescue Me. The stories are republished in this edition with updates, additional photos, and senior dog quotes. Rescue Me Seniors also includes sections on basic senior dog care and helping homeless senior dogs (and dogs of all ages) in shelters, rescues and sanctuaries. Donations from the Rescue Me dog books are made to organizations that help homeless pets. Available as a paperback and e-book on Amazon.

Rescue Me Seniors is a wonderful book that helps to illustrate the fact that when rescuing a senior you give them additional life that sparks a renewal within them – they “come alive” all over again and are the most grateful of pups.  That’s been my experience through the years and continues today. I always think we don’t rescue them, THEY rescue us!~Arianna Eisenberg, writer, producer, owner of Aegis Film Group
