About the Author

J.C. Carr is a retired special education teacher. S.J. GOES HOME is based on the true story of her magnificent collie, S.J., whom she rescued from an animal shelter. S.J. was enrolled in advanced training courses in obedience school, where he excelled and achieved certificates and titles to become a certified therapy dog, regularly visiting a nursing care facility. S.J. demonstrates that we should never underestimate the potential for greatness many shelter dogs possess. They are just waiting for the right owner to give them a second chance. S.J.'s story is a testament to the many great dogs still awaiting adoption: from puppy mill survivor, to shelter dog, to Canine Good Citizen, to therapy dog. The book is a realization of a lifelong desire to educate children, parents and teachers to the plight of puppy mill dogs, encourage shelter dog adoptions and instill compassion and respect for all animals through humane education.
