Dog Joy - Volume 1 was published by 17-year old high school student and dog lover, Caroline Capuzzi in the summer of 2018.
It is a collection of heartwarming stories told by the caring individuals who have opened their homes and hearts to deserving dogs in need of a forever home. Each story is shared to inspire others to consider dog rescue and adoption when it comes time to add a four-legged member to your family.
100% of the profits from Dog Joy go to supporting a number of the rescue organizations featured in the book.
