He pries open the doors of ramshackle sheds, freeing puppy-mill dogs from chicken wire cages—spaces so small they can barely turn around. One day he’s in a laboratory saving animals who have outlived their usefulness for medical testing, and the next, showing an animal shelter a better way to care for society’s abandoned creatures.This gripping memoir takes readers on the road with Scotlund as he dangerously busts puppy mills and other places abusing animals, and gets them into the arms of loving, protective caregivers. It shares how Scotlund came to be the fearless leader he is—realizing in a twelve-step program as a youth that his life needed meaning—and gives readers the support they need if they, too, are looking for their calling, or want to make a positive change in the world.
