About the Author

Cara Sue Achterberg is the author of several books, including I'm Not Her and Girls Weekend, which were national bestsellers. She lives in New Freedom, Pennsylvania.


"Cara Sue Achterberg has in fact written another good book about dogs, but even more so she has produced a manifesto on how to change the world: through single acts of caring and compassion stacked one on top of another without end." -- Jim Gorant, author of the New York Times bestseller 'The Lost Dogs' "A love letter not only to the dogs she fostered, but to all the dogs she hopes to save in the future." -- Kim Kavin, author of 'The Dog Merchants' "A big hearted, inspiring and passionate look at a critical piece of the rescue puzzle. Lucky are the dogs who pass through Achterberg's arms on their way to the lives they so richly deserve. It takes a very special person to open her heart and home to a succession of hard luck dogs looking for their forever families for it means falling in love every time and then saying goodbye over and over and over again. Honest and engaging." -- Peter Zheutlin, New York Times bestselling author of 'Rescue Road' "Witty and full of love, [Achterberg's] memoir beautifully captures the personalities of the dogs she's helped save and recounts the concurrent struggles in her family life, particularly watching her teenagers fly the nest. This easy read is a must for animal lovers and those interested in volunteering with animals and a good choice for reluctant readers." -- Booklist "In this heartwarming memoir, Achterberg lovingly describes the ups and downs of her first two years rehabilitating 50 dogs for new lives in `forever homes.' Illustrated with photographs of some of Achterberg's many fosters, this book blends insight and entertainment to tell an unforgettable story about seeking, and finding, life purpose through caring for abandoned dogs. A compassionate and humane canine tale." -- Kirkus Reviews "As expected, the narrative revolves around tales of dogs and puppies. What's unexpected are Achterberg's personal reveals. The stories and photos will delight those who have a soft spot for dogs and the dog rescue mission." -- Publishers Weekly "Saddened by her emptying nest, Cara Sue Achterberg started fostering dogs-dozens of them. Here she shares the journey (and some supercute photos)." -- People
