Philadelphia-Area 17-Year-Old Publishes 'Dog Joy' to Raise Awareness and Money for a Variety of Dog Rescue Operations

PHILADELPHIA, Oct. 1, 2018 /PRNewswire/ In time for American Humane's annual Adopt-a-Dog Month in October, high school student Caroline Capuzzi recently published the compilation, "Dog Joy: Amazing Stories of the Indescribable Love Only a Rescued Dog Can Give." The collection of 26 dog rescue stories details special adoptions as well as organizations that perform vital animal rescue work every day. The book is available for purchase at

Each poignant tale in the volume is accompanied by a photograph of the story's rescued dog and each chapter was contributed by a unique individual or family. In addition, Capuzzi asked the contributors to highlight a non-profit dog rescue, shelter or organization which supports dog rescue and adoption. 100 percent of all profits garnered from book sales will be donated to the selected rescue operations featured in the book.

To date, more than $1,500 has been donated to several of the rescues featured in the book, as well as over 100 books for these organizations to resell and retain the proceeds.

Intended to be shared with friends and family as well as donated to local animal rescues or given to local vets, "Dog Joy" spreads the love and deep comfort which rescue dogs freely offer to their owners. The ultimate goal of the book is to encourage people to consider visiting an animal shelter the next time they are looking for a new friend.

"The American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) estimates that nationally, U.S. animal shelters have an intake of 6.5 million companion animals each year roughly 3.3 million are dogs. Although the numbers of these animals entering shelters and being euthanized have declined, there are still an estimated 670,000 dogs euthanized every year. The increase in adoptions and return of animals to their owners has aided that decrease," writes Capuzzi in her introduction to the volume.

"Dog Joy" is published by Dog Joy Books, a publisher who utilizes such story book sales as an effective fundraising tool to help rescue organizations and shelters raise money and awareness with no upfront costs to their organizations. Dog Joy Books removes the tedious and often difficult work of publishing a book, allowing rescue operations to focus more on their life-saving efforts and less on the hardships involved with fundraising.
