Books Info:

The Dogs Who Found Me free pdf Disaster-prone writer and reluctant dog rescuer Ken Foster finds himself centered by the presence of an ever-growing collection of stray dogs. In this memoir-cum-guidebook, Foster describes the dogs who found him, from a beagle abandoned in a New York City dog run to a pit bull in a Mississippi truck stop. Their circumstances offer a grounding counterpoint to his own recent misfortunes: the shock of New York City after 9/11, the deaths of two close friends, a near fatal heart condition and the evacuation of New Orleans during Hurricane Katrina. He writes eloquently about the world of animal shelters, the nature of compassion, and the empowering effect of rescuing--and being rescued.
