In any given day, there are millions of homeless animals sitting in shelters across the country, waiting to be adopted. Unfortunately, many of those animals will not make it out alive. Many of them are young, friendly and healthy, but there just is not enough time for them all to get noticed by a potential adopter. The shelter environment is scary to many animals, making it difficult for passersby to see their true personalities. Through photographs, this book challenges you to look beyond that first glance and see the soul that lies behind those sad eyes. Please consider adopting your next pet from a shelter, and help save a life. 100% of the profits of this book benefit the West Suburban Humane Society, a 501(c)(3) non-profit animal welfare organization located in Downers Grove, IL.
