NEW LIVES presents stories of hope, inspiration, and second chances. The heroes are an unlikely assortment of dogs who were saved from shelters, animal rescues and thestreets. They have gone on to love, serve, and in some cases, save the lives of the compassionate individuals who took a chance on these abandoned canines, and welcomed them into their hearts and lives.
These dogs work with people who have physical and emotional disabilities, with those in nursing homes and hospitals, and those that are incarcerated. They teach children to read, provide comfort to trauma victims, and become a grieving child’s best friend. In the process, lives—both human and canine—are forever changed.
This book is a testament to the powerful bond between humans and dogs, and affirms the belief that it is never to late for miracles.
