Review:

No Shelter Here is my favorite kind of animal book – packed with information that will help dogs, but without the pessimistic overtones that so often make them hard to read. (Vancouver Humane Society Executive Director)

An informative and visually varied introduction to problems affecting dogs worldwide. (Kirkus)

Laidlaw urges readers to become "Dog Champions" by learning about the threats facing dogs and advocating for their welfare. While statistics about homeless and maltreated dogs are grim . . . , Laidlaw offers heartening profiles of children and adults taking action around the world. (Publishers Weekly)

This book provides information regarding maltreatment, hints and tips for owners, and highlights individuals and organizations making a difference in world for dogs. (Ontario Library Association Best Bets)

This book is a remarkable gift of inspiration, passion, and celebration of how children can learn to protect dogs from the unkind and irresponsible realities around the world. (Marin Humane Society, California)

[An] engaging text . . . Abundantly stocked with color photographs and supplemented with online resources and a glossary, this book invites children to pause and consider our friends who have paws. (Booklist)

Even if your budget is tight (whose isn't?) you will still want to find the money to purchase No Shelter Here which is so much more than just another dog book . . . Impassioned, empowering and informative, No Shelter Here will fill a void in your dog books collection that you may not have even known you had. **Highly Recommended** (CM Magazine)

Canine lovers will discover a broad array of topics useful for caring for dogs and becoming an advocate for their humane treatment. Chapters are brief but chock-full of information . . . Children will come away from this book educated and inspired to become 'Dog Champions.' (School Library Journal)

Book Description Pajama Press, Canada, 2013. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The goal of a puppy mill is to produce the maximum number of puppies in the cheapest way possible. That s why expensive items - proper housing, care, food, and medical attention - are ignored. Dogs have been loyal to Humankind for thousands of years. We cherish them as companions, groom them as show dogs and depend on them as working partners. But today, millions of dogs are neglected and malnourished. And millions of other dogs are used in scientific research and for entertainment, and kept as pets in a remarkable diversity of conditions. In No Shelter Here, animal advocate and chartered biologist Rob Laidlaw explores the world of homeless, free ranging, mistreated, and exploited dogs, and the challenges they face. But more importantly, he focuses on the people he calls dog champions - those individuals, small groups and professional organizations around the world who dedicate their lives to helping dogs. Enhanced with photos, informational sidebars and inspiring good-news stories, No Shelter Here will galvanize young readers to become Dog Champions in their own communities.
