The author introduces readers to a cat and dog awaiting a second chance at life while living at an animal shelter. She explains that there are many different animals to choose from at a shelter and that they are often healthier than pets that are sold by a breeder or pet store. The book includes information about veterinarians and adoption counselors, and the fees that are collected upon adoption at a shelter are explained. A persuasive last point is made: every time someone adopts from a shelter, he or she saves an animal's life.
