Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

EVERY RESCUED DOG HAS A TALE is the story of homeless dogs fated to die on death row in animal shelters around the country that were saved by being transported by volunteers to other states. Each chapter is the story of one dog from his hapless beginning to his happy ending, complete with photos. Some stories are heart wrenching while others are full of humor. They all teach a lesson of how one person can make a difference in the lives of homeless animals. All it takes is a weekend drive and some free time.

In this book, you will meet Oreo, a pit bull puppy who was being used as bait in a dog fighting ring in New Jersey before being rescued and adopted by a family in Kentucky. You will also read the story of the Chocolate Chip puppies who were found abandoned in the woods in Tennessee after being tortured and beaten and left for dead by some future serial killer. They are taken to a vet and recover fully. Finally they take a Christmas weekend trip to Canada where they all get adopted by loving families. You will meet Sasha, a beautiful black Great Dane who is abandoned and tied to a doghouse in the dead of winter, with no food until her owner calls Great Dane Rescue and tells them to "come and get her". Underweight and suffering with heartworms, she is saved by the rescue and recovers from her illness. She still waits for a happy forever home in Ohio now that she is well again.

The book contains 17 individual chapters, each profiling a rescued dog, with an additional 15 pages of black and white photos of many other dogs on their way to a happy ending. These stories will touch you and may even entice you to become a transporter yourself after reading how easy it is to help.

After reading this book, I purchased a copy for the animal lovers I know. These inspiring stories really touch your heart and help you to realize that one person can do his/her own small part in helping change the lives of animals in need. There is even some information included on how to get involved in animal transport yourself. Such an uplifting read!

Deborah Eades has been a Dogs Deserve Better supporter for a long time, so I was not surprised to note that she has decided to donate a portion of the proceeds to our organization, and I'm very thankful for that.

She sent me a book to read, and although I've so far only gotten to the chapter on Hooch, she had me howling a couple of times.

Suffice it to say that one of the biggest laughs involved something that is decidedly NOT funny when it's happening to you, and many of us have been there. "I felt very sorry for mom as she tried to figure out why her backside was suddenly very warm...she then realized that Fritz had problems at BOTH ends."

Well written, a sure joy to those who transport or are interested in better ways to help neglected and mistreated dogs. Great job, Deborah, and best of luck with your book. Tammy S. Grimes, Dogs Deserve Better founder

Format: Paperback
For anyone who is an animal lover, myself included, Deborah Eades' book is definitely one that deserves a heart warming Awwwwwe! Deborah is a volunteer for what's known as the Dog Rescue Railroad. Years ago a website was created called petfinder.com which helps place pets in new homes. Volunteers often travel cross country to pick up animals and transport them to their new owners.

"These are all volunteers who give up their day off and pay their own gas expense to save a life. Most would tell you that they are the ones who benefit the most, by seeing what a difference one person can make to a homeless animal."

Deborah states in the introduction that every animal has its own unique story about how it ended up in need and the happy ending that hopefully greets them at the end of their journey. She's been transporting dogs since 2002. This book tells the story of several dogs which Deborah picked up from shelters and helped to relocate to loving homes. She dedicates the book to a long list of names of dogs which she helped rescue and to all the homeless pets who weren't so fortunate.

Often arriving the same day the animals were scheduled to be euthanized, Deborah tells the "tales" of neglected animals who are frightened and often in shock. Society has given up on them and their sad eyes are begging for a second chance. A hand to lick, a bowl of food, a comfortable bed, a pat on the rump and a scratch on the chin, all these dogs crave is love. Deborah is like a guardian angel arriving just in time.dogpic1

A book like this would not be complete without photos to accompany each story. Oreo, Hooch, Shyla, Sophie and her pups, Dusty, Annie, and many more....

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Each chapter in this wonderful book is a tale of one or more dogs rescued from a variety of situations, from being chained and starving in an owner's backyard to getting them out of a kill shelter moments before they are gassed. How are they rescued? By a network of volunteer "angels" along the Dog Rescue Railroad that Deborah Eades writes about in her book, Every Rescued Dog Has a Tale. I was touched by the stories of the many dogs rescued over the years thanks to the efforts and commitment by these dedicated volunteers who drive a leg of a journey each weekend in this country to rescue dogs who would otherwise be killed. Deborah Eades is one of these incredible volunteers, and the proceeds from her delightful book go to animal shelters and rescue groups. The author's wish is that many of us who read her stories of hope will volunteer with a dog transport group in our area to save even more lives. This book is so uplifting in that it shows what one person can do to make a huge difference--the difference between life and death--for a dog. This beautiful book is about second chances for animals that need people like those on The Dog Rescue Railroad--and like you and me--to give the gift of life simply by say "yes" to a 50 to 100 mile drive. You can find more detail about the best ways to do this and how it works at the end of her book. According to Deborah, "the fulfillment you get from helping these pitiful animals is priceless, and it is so easy to do."

I entered another world when I read Deborah Eades heart warming book.
I had no idea that so many dogs were not wanted. I didn't realize how much dogs were suffering because of cruelty and neglect.

And I didn't know that there are networks of dog lovers across the country who save and transport dogs to a new lives where they will be loved and cared for.

With words and pictures, I was transported into the personal experiences of this dog loving author -- and her family -- on the Dog Rescue "Railroad." The dogs breeds vary,as do the personal stories of their rescue. What is constant is the loving satisfaction that Deborah Eades shares with all readers in her touching, heart warming book.
