A guide by Allison (Florida)

Products sampled from this guide:
I've always loved animals growing up. At any given moment in my childhood, it was likely that we had over 10 pets at my house. My mother had a big heart, and when it came to strays, she was never hesitant to give them a home. She would often nurse them back to health, and then try to find homes for them. However, we would often end up with nearly 10 dogs at a time... (Luckily we lived outside of town and had lots of land for them to run around on). A year after I graduated college, I rescued a dog from a shelter, and ever since, I've been fostering and adopting dogs on my own. This list of books contains some of the most heartfelt and inspirational stories that will touch any animal lover's heart.
