No Shelter Here: Making the World a Kinder Place for Dogs
This event is presented in association with the Winnipeg Humane Society, and hosted by Doug Speirs, of the Winnipeg Free Press, who will be conducting a moderated Q&A following Rob’s presentation.
Dogs have been loyal to humans for thousands of years.
We cherish them as companions, groom them as show dogs and
depend on them as working partners.
But today, millions of dogs are neglected and malnourished.
And millions of other dogs are used in scientific research and for entertainment,
and kept as pets in a remarkable diversity of conditions.
In No Shelter Here, animal advocate and biologist Rob Laidlaw explores the world of
homeless, free ranging, mistreated, and exploited dogs. But more importantly, he focuses on “dog champions”, those who dedicate their lives to helping dogs.
Enhanced with photos, informational sidebars and inspiring good-news stories, No Shelter Here will galvanize young readers to become Dog Champions in their own communities.
