by Shannon Kopp

Book Reviews

"Anyone who has ever loved an animal, battled depression, or struggled with an addiction of any kind will not be able to put down Pound for Pound . . . brave account of the healing power of shelter dogs is not only a page-turner, but a true inspiration."
-- Laura Maloney, former Chief Operating Officer of the Humane Society of the United States, current COO of Panthera

"Every now and again a book comes along that can help millions of people deal with all sorts of difficult and challenging times and guide them to change their ways for a better and healthier life. Pound for Pound is one of those inspirational gems. Shannon Kopp's personal story -- the incredibly hard work she had to do and her opening her heart to the dogs with whom she worked -- is a must read. She shows how compassion, trust, and love can open the door for people and dogs in need to heal and to grow together"
-- Marc Bekoff, author of Rewilding our Hearts: Building Pathways of Compassion and Coexistence

"Don't miss Pound for Pound -- a uniquely touching memoir about a woman bravely struggling with bulimia and self-judgment, ultimately healed by the miraculous power of the rescue dogs she devotes herself to.  It's a story you'll always remember, a testament to the healing energy of our canine companions, who ask only for love and then give it back in spades."
-- Glenn Plaskin, Author of Katie Up and Down the Hall, The True Story of How One Dog Turned Five Neighbors Into a Family

"Pound for Pound is an emotional reminder of the strength of the human spirit and how dogs are more than our best friend; they can also be guides, inspiring us to be compassionate, share joy, and live life in the moment."
