…by Adopting a Pet.

Chicken Soup for the Soul was happy to help San Diego’s Second Chance Dog Rescue this fall by donating 5,000 pounds of dog food. Everyone who adopted a dog went home with not only a fabulous new family member, but also a bag of dog food and a copy of the new bestseller, “Chicken Soup for the Soul: The Dog Did What?”

More than 3 million dogs and cats are adopted from shelters in the United States each year, but unfortunately an equal number do not find a new home and are euthanized. “We have published hundreds of stories about the benefits of adopting dogs from shelters and rescue organizations. These dogs seem to know that they have been saved, and they invariably become grateful and loving family members.

“I remember being awestruck by the temperament of my daughter’s Pug, Riley, who was found wandering the streets. The poor little thing had apparently given birth and then been abandoned. Despite being a purebred, Riley was considered undesirable. She was either born with deformities or severely injured at some point in her life,” Amy Newmark, the books’ author tells a pet’s life magazine.

From the moment Amy’s daughter adopted her, Riley was friendly, even-tempered, cuddly, and obedient bringing so much joy into their lives.
