Over the past decade, Kathy Callahan’s family has taken in more than a hundred rescue puppies. This delightful photo-filled book features the wonderful stories that emerged as these foster pups were suddenly surrounded by a nurturing family complete with patient adult dogs and curious cats. With a gift for capturing the moment in both words and images, Callahan brings readers inside the poignant and ultimately uplifting work of fostering. This inspiring read is indeed about puppies, but it’s also about family and human connection. It’s about finding your own way — through that one special thing you can do to light a candle, instead of cursing the darkness.


“I absolutely love this book! It’s so well-written, engaging, and immediately captivating — and all with a wry sense of humor. It grabbed me in the first few pages, and I laughed and cried as I read cover to cover. In every photograph, the puppies’ personalities shine through as if they are right there with you, and you’re just rooting for them. I must admit, this book caught me by surprise. I was expecting something run-of-the-mill and cutesy, but it’s much more than a puppy book. It’s about people coming together to enjoy the things that matter most in life.”
— Dr. Ian Dunbar, founder of the Association of Professional Dog Trainers

“Told with humor and humility, 101 Rescue Puppies is as entertaining as it is inspiring.”
— Traer Scott, author of Shelter Dogs and Finding Home: Shelter Dogs and Their Stories

“Fostering dogs isn’t all wet noses and wagging tails, but Kathy Callahan illustrates in her delightful, honest, and very personal book how devotion to these needy animals keeps a heart (and house!) full. These are love stories, plain and simple, so have tissues on hand. Bonus: the pup portraits will make you swoon. Needy dogs who land in Kathy Callahan’s care get the Super Mom of the fostering world, and her stories will make you want to join the family.”
— Jennifer S. Holland, author of the New York Times bestselling Unlikely Friendships series
