This book is such a heartwarming story of how important pet adoption is. As the founder of a non-profit for pit bull type dogs and their families, this book is a great way for families to continue to spread the word that adoption is so important. Congratulations to Reed and his family for finding each other and spreading the story of second chances and love.
Please choose adoption.

Rescuing Reed is a great book about never giving up! And of course about Dog, shelters, and the misconception that come along with them. Encourage any teacher or parent to have this book In their collection!!

I have two boys 2 yrs old and 6 yrs old. We loved this book! The boys loved following Reeds story and I loved the message that Heidi had for the kids. Here I wrote about my favorite parts of the book:

I am an Animal Services Officer (what this author so lovingly called a 'dog catcher' - cringed at that one, wow). Myself and all coworkers in this field work day in and day out to protect, advocate and fight for, serve, care, and love for all the creates great and small that come into our care at our large City Shelter that serves 285k people. We are cruelty investigators

I loved this story, it really resonates with me because I volunteer at a pet rescue/adoption place and we work with all the dogs on good manners so that we can find them the perfect home. And Reed reminds me of my Casanova who I adopted from the rescue I volunteer at, he is a black lab/hound/pit blend and really lives up to his name.

This is a beautifully written and illustrated children's book with a very powerful message. We all have a purpose in life and Reed helps show us why.
