Gold winner of the Benjamin Franklin Award
This award-winning book recounts the stories of dogs once caught in Chicago's court system after being confiscated from neglect or abuse, and their journey from the city shelter into loving and supportive homes. It also tells the stories of the heroes, rescue organizations, and volunteers that helped the dogs get a second chance at a great life, thanks to the first-in-the-nation Court Case Dog™ Program of Safe Humane Chicago. Purposefully written and beautifully photographed, A Ruff Road Home will tug at your heartstrings and instill a necessary sense of hope. Written by Susan Russell, photographed by Josh Feeney, designed by Christian Henry, edited by Susan Palmer Marshall, and with a foreword by Cook County Circuit Court Judge E. Kenneth Wright, Jr., A Ruff Road Home is a combined, pro-bono effort to raise awareness of and funds for Safe Humane's important work with veterans, at-risk youth, and dogs who have "done the time but not the crime."
