Rescue Matters - not just a book title but two words that have a deep and emotional meaning. Once you read this book I hope you will agree with me.

C.J. English is a true inspiration. All that know me, know that I love her previous work, but her passion and dedication to this cause has made me love and admire her even more (if that’s possible)

She has opened my eyes to a crisis I was completely oblivious to. And if you think that this crisis is isolated to just North Dakota,( like I was initially)

People that don't know about animal rescue and those that are already involved in animal rescue can learn so much from this story.

I, like the author, CJ English, grew up in Fargo, ND and only knew about our family buying dogs from a breeder. Thankfully when I moved to California 17.5 years ago and adopted our rescue cats I started learning about animal rescue and have been volunteering for a local organization for 6 years. I wish I would have know about animal rescue sooner but it's never too la

Heartbreaking, but a must read.

Thank you for writing the book. Thank you for your hard work. Thank you for not giving up. Thank you for bringing awareness. Thank you for teaching others not to assume a dog's story or to judge those who have to give up their dogs. Thank you for giving your all. Sincerely, thank you.

The title says it all. Two words - Rescue Matters. This book brings to light the heart wrenching problem of abuse and neglect of our four legged friends. This book takes you on an emotional roller coaster. What Keith and the volunteers of TMAR do to save our furry friends and give them the life they deserve is absolutely astounding. This books is uplifting and also gut wrenching. What Keith started to save the abused and neglected animals in his area and the unselfishness and unwillingness to gi ...more

The moment CJ started 'Rescue Matters', I followed and read every posts about the dogs getting rescued and taken care of. This book is not meant only for dog lovers. It's a book that we all should read and share. CJ has poured her soul into this amazing book and we need more books like this. Hats off to CJ for taking the initiative to write this true story!

This isn't the most polished book I've read this year, but it was very readable and quite thought provoking. I don't generally hold with books that paint characters unabashedly as heroes and angels. I don't trust them. I would have found the book more interesting and more trustworthy if the less heroic bits had been aired and explored along with the good, but by the end I had come to some peace with the idea that this book was intended to raise money, which would be more difficult with total hon ...more

I enjoyed this book a lot. I mean I didn't want to in the sense of the staggering sad numbers and statistics for rescue. But on the other hand to get an in depth look into the coming of an organization and to read some of the first hand testimonies or specific animal stories was amazing and humbling at the same time. I am in awe of these dedicated individuals and indebted to them. I only wish I made more money so that I could help more. I pray ND passes new updated legislation to help as well.

It's amazing how one person can change a community. I love all the little dog stories. I could read that all day long. My next dog will come from TMAR for sure.
