The wait is officially over: The Lost Dogs: Michael Vick’s Dogs and Their Tale of Rescue and Redemption by Jim Gorant, an in-depth look behind the scenes of the Michael Vick case and “where are they now” account of the dogs rescued from his property, hit bookshelves nationwide on September 16. The Lost Dogs can be purchased at your local bookstore and through online retailers including Amazon.com. (Tip: If you purchase the book on Amazon.com using this link, the ASPCA will receive a small donation at no extra cost to you!)
Naturally, the ASPCA is excited about this book because of our firsthand involvement in the investigation—but having gotten our hands on an early copy, we’re very happy to report that it is a terrific, compelling read for anyone interested in animal welfare, canine behavior, the evolution of animal protection laws or our country’s criminal justice system.
Last month, we showed you where to get an advance look at the book on Parade magazine’s website. That article proved so popular with readers that Parade enlisted the ASPCA’s Pam Reid, Ph.D., CAAB, Vice President of the ASPCA Animal Behavior Center, to pen a follow-up piece called “Top 5 Myths about Pit Bulls” that addresses the most common perceptions—and misperceptions—about this maligned and misunderstood breed.
Pick up or order a copy of The Lost Dogs for yourself or the animal lover in your life! To learn more about the book and see videos of the featured dogs, please visit author Jim Gorant’s website, www.thelostdogsbook.com.
