The goal of a puppy mill is to produce the maximum number of puppies in the cheapest way possible. That's why expensive items - proper housing, care, food, and medical attention - are ignored. Dogs have been loyal to Humankind for thousands of years. We cherish them as companions, groom them as show dogs and depend on them as working partners. But today, millions of dogs are neglected and malnourished. And millions of other dogs are used in scientific research and for entertainment, and kept as pets in a remarkable diversity of conditions. In No Shelter Here, animal advocate and chartered biologist Rob Laidlaw explores the world of homeless, free ranging, mistreated, and exploited dogs, and the challenges they face. But more importantly, he focuses on the people he calls "dog champions" - those individuals, small groups and professional organizations around the world who dedicate their lives to helping dogs. Enhanced with photos, informational sidebars and inspiring good-news stories, No Shelter Here will galvanize young readers to become Dog Champions in their own communities.

It was a pretty good book, but the author was very opinionated in some areas. Such as electric fences, they ARE fine, and work well, it is not abuse. And no-kill animal shelters are a vey good thing. I don't see the problem with saving lives. That's what an animal shelter is for, right? All the other animal shelters kill the animal merely because they don't have room, only for the next animal to face the same fate, it makes no sense!!!

Heart-warming, with a true sign of love from the author. I heard the author ROB LAIDAW has 5 dogs- and he wrote this book after 1 of them died. Great!

Dog lovers will surely enjoy this children's book, I would say grades 8-12. It discusses different kinds of shelters, including no-kill, as well as profiling many cases of how kids have helped the canines amongst us. It ends with a terrific Dog Lover's Pledge.
