New Review: “Little Boy Blue a Must-Read for Dog Lovers”

Posted on July 22, 2013


Animal-loving blogger Susan Miers Smith just posted a new review of Little Boy Blue at her site, Thoughts on Paws. Here are some of our favorite excerpts:

If you call yourself a dog lover, you must read Little Boy Blue: A Puppy’s Rescue From Death Row and His Owner’s Journey for Truth by Kim Kavin. … While the book is unsettling, it also shows just how far rescuing homeless animals has come. It was after Kavin’s book was published, but Pennsylvania finally banned the use of gas chambers to euthanize animals in animal shelters and animal control facilities. Blue’s adoptionfrom a Pennsylvania rescue group that worked in concert with a North Carolina rescue group, foster home and underground-railroad-like transport to the North, show the lengths people will go to get unwanted dogs homes. Kavin also devotes ample pages to the importance of low-cost spaying and neutering services in the South to stem the influx of unwanted pets in the first place. Please, do yourself a favor and enlighten yourself by reading Kavin’s book.”
