An anthology of rescue stories.

The editor, Nora Star writes: This book is the first of its kind. It is meant to gently inform the reader with truth and knowledge. Anyone who cares about animals on any level should read this book and become aware of some of the atrocities that go on in the greyhound's life, as well as the glorious nature of this hound as a companion.

Nearly all the stories I have collected for this anthology have happy endings. As Susan Netboy says in her introduction however, "greyhound rescue is a life of long days, endless chores, and often agonizing choices about who will live and who will die. For now, the joy of watching the survivors arrive at a safe haven must suffice to ward off the haunting images of those left behind". Not all endings are happy now, but that is our goal for the future.
