Silver Birch Non-fiction Review: No Shelter Here: Making the World a Kinder Place for Dogs

Do you love dogs?  I do!!  A lot.  And I thought I knew about the sad stories of dogs abandoned to pounds or left on the streets but this book lets you see even more of the real world that dogs - dogs all over the world - live in.  It isn't pretty, to be honest.  But the coolest thing about No Shelter Here is that the author, Rob Laidlaw, doesn't just tell you stuff you didn't know but he also tells you how to help - in really practical and inspiring ways. Everyday real people are making a difference in the life of dogs and you can too!
