He was overjoyed when he then met the manager of a pet supply store who gave him a big bowl of food to eat. The woman who had rescued Maverick decided to take care of him and help prepare the pooch for adoption. When adoption day arrived, Maverick was so excited. He just knew that he was going to find the perfect forever home.
Maverick watched as the other dogs were adopted one by one. Adoption day was almost over and he had not yet found his family. Will Maverick ever find a place where he belongs?
I adore this book! I love the personal message from author Katherine Schwarzenegger featured at the beginning. This story definitely tugged on my heartstrings. True stories about rescued animals getting a second chance at life always make me smile. I especially love that the book sheds light on the adoption option.
Being the proud pet parent of five rescue dogs and three cats in addition to being an animal advocate and volunteer for various rescue groups and organizations, I am thrilled that this book highlights the importance of foster parents for animals. Additionally, I love that Scarlett shares her passion for animal adoption with her friends. This is a very important message that should definitely be taught to children at a young age.
This is a fantastic read for animal lovers of all ages. I also believe that this book could serve as an educational text for humane education programs for area rescue groups and shelters. The book would also make a great gift for people with children who are interested in adopting a new pet.
