Publisher's Summary

After nearly a year struggling to find a home for a particular foster dog, Cara begins to wonder how the story ends - when will all the dogs be saved? Even after the 100th foster dog passes through Cara’s home, the stream of homeless dogs appears endless. Seized by the need to act, Cara grabs her best friend, fills a van with donations, and heads south to discover what’s really happening in the rural shelters where her foster dogs originate.

What she discovers will break her heart and compel her to share the story of heroes and villains and plenty of good dogs in the hope of changing this world. From North Carolina where pit bulls fill the shelters and heart-worm rages to Tennessee where dogs are left forgotten in pounds and on to Alabama where unlikely heroes fight in a state that has largely forsaken its responsibilities to its animals, Cara meets the people working on the front lines in this national crisis of unwanted animals. The dogs, the people, and their inspiring stories draw her south again and again in search of answers - and maybe a dog of her own.

One Hundred Dogs and Counting will introduce listeners to many wonderful dogs - from sweet Oreo to quirky Flannery - but also to inspirational people sacrificing their personal lives and fortunes to save deserving animals. 

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Sound editor asleep

A few of the chapters were not edited. The author repeated herself in sentence after sentence. An inside look behind the scenes of audio book recording.

Attention All Dog & Cat Lovers!

This is a must listen. I had no idea the situation in our rural south was so bad with our animal smelters. This book is a wake up and a call to action. Highly recommended to all animal lovers.
