Publisher's Summary

When Cara felt her teenaged children slipping away and saw an empty nest on the horizon, she decided the best way to fill that void was with dogs - lots of them - and so her foster journey began.  

In 2015, her Pennsylvania farm became a haven for Operation Paws for Homes. There were the nine puppies at once, which arrived with less than a day's notice; a heart-worm positive dog; a deeply traumatized stray pup from Iraq; and countless others who just needed a gentle touch and a warm place to sleep. Operation Paws for Homes rescues dogs from high-kill shelters in the rural south and shuttles them north to foster homes like Cara's on the way to their forever homes.  

What started as a search for a good dog, led to an epiphany that there wasn't just one that could fill the hole left in her heart from her children gaining independence - she could save dozens along the way. The stories of these remarkable dogs-including an 80-pound bloodhound who sang arias for the neighbors - and the joy they bring to Cara and her family (along with a few chewed sofa cushions) fill this touching and inspiring new book that reveals the wonderful rewards of fostering.  

When asked how she can possibly say goodbye to that many loveable pups, Cara says, "If I don't give this one away, I can't possibly save another."

IT WILL CHANGE YOUR LIFE

This book is about a lady that has fostered and saved over 100 dogs. You will laugh and you will cry a lot. It is fiction and if I lived in Maryland I would volunteer for the rescue. If you are not a dog person you won't like this book but I cannot wait for Cara Sue to write another one. And Xe Sands is my favorite narrator so its a win win to me. I hope that you give it a chance!!!!!

Dog Lover's Rejoice

Narration was excellent, it felt like the narrator was the author, she seemed passionate about the story. I enjoyed hearing about the individual dogs and their personalities as well as learning about the challenges and benefits of dog rescue.

Heartwarming and inspiring story of dog rescue

Heartwarming and inspiring story of how one person can have such a HUGE impact in the world of dog rescue, and all the unexpected, wonderful rewards they receive in return. Lots of chuckles and and few tears later, I’m inspired to get involved and make a difference.
