Who should read this book?
EVERYONE! (Okay, so I may be slightly biased.)
But seriously, if you are in dog rescue, I have done my best to put together a really comprehensive resource that addresses every rescuer question I’ve encountered during my years in the animal welfare world. It will also tell you about how the larger animal welfare system works, and how rescue can best function within it.
Here’s the description from Amazon:
“So you want to rescue dogs, but you don’t know where to start. Or you’ve been in rescue for a while, and you’re starting to realize how many unanswered questions you have. Written by a lifelong rescuer, The Rescuer’s Handbook will explain exactly how rescue can function best within the complexities of the larger animal welfare system. You’ll learn how to work effectively with first response agencies, and what constraints those agencies operate under that the general public just doesn’t know about. The Rescuer’s Handbook will tell you how to evaluate an animal’s suitability for your program, and what to expect once you’ve got him into rescue. It includes a comprehensive guide to commonly seen veterinary conditions among rescue dogs, as well as suggested criteria for qualifying an adopter and setting an adoption fee. This informative guide also delves into the areas where most rescuers struggle: volunteer recruiting and management, fundraising, and publicizing your rescue group to attract donors, volunteers, and adopters. Its honest approach to the rewards and challenges of the rescue world makes The Rescuer’s Handbook the go-to book for rescuers who want solid information and answers from an insider’s perspective.”
