Cara Sue Achterberg has in fact written another good book about dogs, but even more so she has produced a manifesto on how to change the world: through single acts of caring and compassion stacked one on top of another without end.” -Jim Gorant, author of the New York Times bestseller The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption
“It takes a very special person to open her heart and home to a succession of hard luck dogs looking for their forever families for it means falling in love every time and then saying goodbye over and over and over again. In this honest and engaging book we meet that person and the lucky dogs who have known her kindness, whether for one day or several months.” -Peter Zheutlin, author of the New York Times bestseller Rescue Road: One Man, Thirty Thousand Dogs, and A Million Miles on the Last Hope Highway

And from Shelf Awareness...
"If my mother taught me anything it's that making any kind of difference in this world always requires a sacrifice." That's how author Cara Sue Achterberg explains her ability to part with foster dogs whenever people ask, "Isn't it hard to let them go?" In her memoir detailing the chaotic first two years of her canine-fostering experience, Achterberg doesn't sugarcoat anything. It's difficult to say goodbye, and she's almost been a foster failure--someone who adopts their foster--on several occasions. But, ultimately, she wants to help as many dogs as she can, and that means letting each go in order to make room for others.
