"Rescuing Penny Jane"


Author of Rescuing Penny Jane, Amy Sutherland, talks with Tra'Renee about her new book and experience as a shelter volunteer.

Drawing on her work at a shelter, her experiences living with two rescue dogs, and years of research, Boston Globe columnist Amy Sutherland takes us on a journey into the world of rescue and shelter dogs. Through conversations with shelter directors, researchers, trainers, adoption counselors, and caretakers across the country, Sutherland offers a nuanced, fully informed picture of the rescue world, along with its challenges, champions, and triumphs. Rich, moving, and at times laugh-out-loud funny, Rescuing Penny Jane (Harper) is an affecting portrait of the relationships between shelter dogs and those who care for them. This event is sponsored by Oregon Humane Society.
