"I watched as the women rescued my family. I knew this could be my last chance! I had to do something! As the woman closed the cage door, I placed my paw on her hand. I looked at her, with my head held high, loudly barking: LOOK AT ME! PLEASE, TAKE ME, TOO!" S.J., the main character, narrates his feelings while communicating through moving gestures and vocalizations, pleading to be rescued from his life of confinement in the puppy mill. Readers are taken on a heartfelt journey as he tells his story from the perspective of a puppy mill dog: from difficult beginnings in a puppy mill, to his rescue and temporary placement in an animal shelter, to the extraordinary circumstances that led to his adoption by the author. The book, beautifully illustrated in color by Kerri Carabetta, vividly, yet delicately, captures a myriad of emotions as evoked by the dogs. The story and images will instill compassion for these dogs in children, parents and teachers, as they are educated to their plight. After reading S.J. GOES HOME, readers, like the author, will champion the humane treatment of animals, realizing, that pet adoption is both a rewarding and a wonderfully humane deed when choosing a pet.
