Where Dogs Go To LIVE!
This book focuses on the stories of the senior dogs that have been taken in by Michele and Jeff through Monkey’s House, a dog hospice and sanctuary. Share in their journeys, laugh at their crazy antics, and shed a few tears while witnessing miracles of transformation.
Note: We’ve all heard the stories of sick and/or senior dogs abandoned or surrendered to shelters by their owners. To animal lovers, it’s a story that forms a knot in the stomach as we think about our own beloved pets, but Jeff and Michelle Allen chose to do something about it. In the last 5 years, they have opened up their home and hearts to over 100 dogs with terminal diagnoses or hard-to-adopt disabilities, and, in WHERE DOGS GO TO LIVE!, Jeff shares the stories of 37 of these dogs – not just the stories of where they came from, but how they thrived when given a second chance. The dogs who cross paths with Jeff, Michele, and their team are shown true love and then guided over the rainbow bridge as a member of a real family. Before you press play, make sure to have tissues handy – you’re sure to shed happy and sad tears listening to this inspiring story. -Jenn Eschrich
