While dog rescue is one of the largest underground movements in America, it is also one of the least understood. An insider look at the "cult and culture" of dog rescue, A Small Furry Prayer weaves personal experience, cultural investigation, and scientific inquiry into a fast-paced, fun-filled narrative that explores what it means to devote one's life to the furry and the four-legged. Along the way, Kotler combs through every aspect of canine-human relations, from humans' long history with dogs through brand-new research into the neuroscience of canine companionship, in the end discovering why living in a world made of dog may be the best way to uncover the truth about what it really means to be human.

The only way this book could have been more enjoyable is if the author had read it himself. I grew up in New Mexico so I could relate to many of his comments about NM. Before reading the book, we had rescued a Chihuahua mix so it also hit close to home. Next time I'm in NM I might have to go visit Rancho de Chihuahua.
