About the Book:
Rescue Road is story of one man who has driven more than 1 million miles to rescue thousands of dogs from hunger, abuse and neglect. For years, Greg Mahle struggled to keep the last of his family-run restaurants afloat in Ohio. When it finally closed, he was broke and unsure what to do next. Then a stranded van-load of puppies changed his life forever.
Author Peter Zheutlin travels with Mahle from Ohio to the Gulf Coast on his Rescue Road Trips to bring hard-luck dogs to loving families. From Houston's impoverished Fifth Ward, where thousands of strays roam the streets, and high-kill animal shelters in Louisiana, to joyous scenes of adopters embracing their new pets, Rescue Road is an inspiring story about the unique bond between dogs and humans.
