Are you lost?
Maybe all you need is to find shelter; a special place where you can stop running just long enough to figure out where you're going--and who you are.
Come discover SHELTER; "a richly woven tale with heart, depth and meaning." Being favorably compared to Harper Lee's To Kill a Mockingbird, the story bursts with humor, mystery, romance and startling twists and turns that "...will make you laugh out loud, gasp, and cry with with turn of a page."
Written and illustrated by award-winning filmmaker, artist and writer R.A. Conroy, SHELTER - Lost and Found is a wildly entertaining, fictional story is based on the author's real life experiences working at a struggling animal shelter in urban New Jersey during the topsy turvy 1970s.
Readers race breathlessly after runaway teen Peggy Dillan, as she flees a terrifying past nipping at her heels, skidding to a stop when she crosses paths with a dog - tormented by local hoods. Peggy now faces a choice; either keep running and save herself - or save the dog.
Stumbling on the Farroway Animal Shelter, Peggy is recruited by the charming warden to join his hilariously eccentric and devoted crew, and then thrust onto a roller-coaster learning curve, quaking under a 100 year-old, fractured SPCA system! All at a time that mirrors today in nearly every way - minus today's conveniences of personal computers, cell phones, the internet, or even cable TV!
Facing impossible odds, Peggy and the crew work within, between, under and around the scant and outdated laws to give the equally compelling animal characters dumped in their charge a second chance at life. While juggling to keep the place from falling apart, this quirky group of misfits attempts to change the world at large by changing the way we view and treat our animals--and each other, here and now...one corner at a time.
