No Shelter Here, by Rob Laidlaw

Rob Laidlaw’s book No Shelter Here: Making the World a Kinder Place for Dogs (Pajama Press) has been nominated for the Hackmatack Children's Choice Book Award. In No Shelter Here, Rob Laidlaw explores the mistreatment of dogs while at the same time focusing on the people he calls “dog champions” — the people around the world who devote their lives to helping dogs. By showing children stories about dogs that have happy endings, they will be encouraged to become “dog champions” themselves.

The Hackmatack Award is children’s choice award in Atlantic Canada. It is awarded to books in four categories: English Fiction, English Non-fiction, French Fiction and French Non-fiction.
