Summary
Soon after Jacki Skole brought home an eight-week-old puppy from a New Jersey rescue organization, she wondered how such a young animal could have so many idiosyncrasies -- so she set out to find an answer. Dogland, an extraordinary mix of memoir and investigative journalism, follows Skole's journey to trace the origins of her newest family member. Along the way, Skole interviewed dozens who work in the world of animal rescue -- from shelter managers to animal rights activists -- taking readers from dilapidated county-run shelters in the South to strip malls in the Northeast where rescue groups seek homes for pets, and from rural and urban "vet deserts" to the very heart of the South's complex relationship with companion dogs. Amid the serious issues facing shelter dogs in America, Skole found tireless animal advocates and humble visionaries who believe their ideas and their passion can save canine lives throughout the South -- and the entire United States
