Dogs WIth No Names
I don’t often write about books in my blogs simply because I don’t have the time to read them all. And you know the saying -- don’t judge a book by its cover. Well occasionally a book cover does catch my eye and the content does in fact live up to expectation.
The haunting photograph on the cover of a book called Dogs with No Names prompted me to peek within and I am very glad I did.
The book is the work of Canadian veterinarian Dr. Judith Samson-French, and tells of her story to research North American feral canines. Sadly there are millions of them that roam unnamed, unclaimed and wanted…
To add, Samson-French writes beautifully and exposed the adversity, despair and suffering that these animals face every day and she also tells how we can begin to take action and help.
Samson-French answered her own call to action by designing and launching a program to implant an innovative new contraceptive in reserve dogs in Alberta Canada with the express intent of finding a solution to reduce the population of these nameless and unwanted dogs. She presented her findings at an international symposium this month.
It is a truly beautiful book – the photographs are haunting and it tells a very relevant story. All the proceeds are donated go her Dogs with No Name Charity
