Finding Home: Shelter Dogs and Their Stories by Traer Scott, published by Princeton Architectural Press 2015. Comparing yourself then and now, how have you and your work changed or stayed the same? TS: Volunteering has been one constant in my life, though the intensity has changed a lot. When I made Shelter Dogs, I was in a desperate situation as one of two volunteers at a municipal shelter that was constantly full of unwanted dogs

In this book, photographer Traer Scott presents over fifty endearing and frequently heartrending portraits of shelter dogs. These images capture the genuine spirit of dogs of all ages, sizes, breeds, and temperaments, whether playful, proud, inquisitive, or shy. Above all, these photographs reveal the strikingly intense emotion, dignity, and even humor that Scott saw in each face, despite the dog's circumstances. By documenting the soulful, unique characters of just a few of the hundreds of dogs she has encountered in her volunteer work, Scott raises awareness of animal rescue and welfare causes, and particularly the need for more adoptive homes for abandoned animals. This collection of portraits is a tribute to all dogs and will appeal to animal lovers every where.

This book was really touching. The photos are beautiful and most of the dogs you can just feel their soul and personality right through the pages.

(Buyer beware, not all the dogs are rescued and live happily ever after. I didn't realize this when I bought the book so my heart leaped when reading their stories and I got to the ones that had been euthanized. It's very heartbreaking to see such a beautiful living (when the photo was taken) being and know they are gone.)

I wish this book was in every library, school, store in the country, it would make a difference. I got my pooch from the humane shelter 5 1/2 years ago as a 2 month old puppy that had been tossed out on a freeway to die. She is my best little buddy and better than any human friend I've ever had.

Thank you for such a beautiful book!

..of finding the soul of her subjects, and showing us all what loving, intelligent, sensitive creatures these abandoned companions truly are!

As the proud "parent" of five rescued canines (and three rescued felines), I can only express my regret that our "forever home" cannot accommodate more: I'd take in each and every one of these lost souls that she captures so hauntingly.

Complaint has been lodged that Ms. Scott erred by not including each animal's bio with their photograph, but I take exception to that: The impact is magnified, when the photograph alone is displayed.

My only dissatisfaction might be that the book is too short, and I can only implore the author to continue her exceptional work with additional issues: If only more people could truly see these loving creatures through the "eye" of her camera, perhaps our shelters would not be so full, and "euthanization" could become anachronistic...

I first heard about this book when someone had told me that my recent shelter dog photos resembled ones from a book she had seen. I ordered it and found that comment to be quite the compliment! Traer Scott is extremely talented and is very concerned about animal welfare. I recommend this book to photographers, animal lovers, and especially to those who need some education about how many thousands of dogs (and cats) are euthanized daily in the US due to overpopulation in shelters. These people need to understand the importance of sterilizing their pets, and to adopt instead of buying a dog from a pet store or breeder. I happen to be involved in animal rescue AND am a photographer, so this book almost brought me to tears with its beautiful images. A MUST have for your book collection! Proceeds help the ASPCA, another bonus of purchasing it!
She'll also be publishing a book entitled "Street Dogs" this Fall- buy them both!!

The photographs in this book are outstanding. The stories that accompany these pictures are short but are adequate enough to tell a short story about shelter dogs in general. The layout is modern and very clean looking. However, I do agree with another reader that the stories are short and leaves me to wonder about each dog. If you love dogs as much as I do, I want to know what battles they went through and where they are now.

I placed this book on my desk at work and people would come by and flip through it and read up on dogs that were of interest to them. This is a great little book to put in an office environment where the reader may not have more than 10 minutes to sit and read the whole book.

I'm hoping for another book to be published by this author.

A simply wonderful book with exceptional black and white photos of the most gorgeous dogs! All three of our dogs have come from a shelter..they are 16, 14 and 4 years old respectively. We wouldn't consider a dog from any other place. I had tears streaming down my face just looking at the photos..looking into their pleading, soulful eyes. Most have happy endings, yes, but it's such a shame for the few that didn't. People need to be responsible pet owners and, unfortunately, there will always be those who aren't and we will always have some sad endings.

Please, spay and neuter your pets and be responsible pet owners. WE are their voice.

As the owner of 3 rescue dogs, I found this book to be a pictoral presentation of the unqualified love that rescue dogs bring into your life. I tell people that DOG is GOD spelled backwards. In a world that is often cruel, uncaring and thankless to own a rescue dog brings me back to the unqualified love of a dog who will eat the same food every day, and is excited to see me when I return and will keep my secrets. There are a few sad tales in the book, but to see what a dog is really all about, I recommend this book without reservation.

Anyone interested in dog rescue should buy this book. I purchased a dozen of them and gave them to all the senior officers at my county's animal control department...one month later they deceided to review their behavioral evaluation process and stop euthenasing behavioral dogs until they were sure the dogs were getting a fair shake...this book might have saved hundreds of dogs lives and that's in only one county...perhaps a dog patron might want to try the same thing in their city/county! Please spay and neuter your pets and tell everyone to do the same thing... the un-intended offspring of our companion animals do not deserve to be tossed on the side of the road, neglected, incarcerated and euthenized due to their owners negligence.
The stunning photos and short backgrounds on each shelter dog in this book grabbed my heart and drew me in like few recently have. I couldn't put it down when I first opened the cover. As a dedicated animal rescue shelter volunteer, this reminded me fully of all the deserving souls awaiting homes and new lives and really renewed my commitment to help them.
