In Cinderella the Cat, Pluto the Paraplegic Dog, and Foreign Stories of Hope Fulfilled, the author, Alexandra George, becomes involved in rescuing dogs when she witnesses the terrible lives that befall street dogs in the countries where she is posted.

When the author returns to work in Kosovo in 2009, she and a friend decide to establish a voluntary association, Hope for the Street Dogs of Kosovo. Soon around 80 street dogs find homes in the U.S., Germany, Netherlands and Austria thanks to Hope’s networking skills. Written in a light, entertaining style, the chapters are filled with rags to riches stories. Alexandra George has already published three books, and is a journalist and translator. She works in international media and public affairs. She is fluent in English, French, and Russian and knows German. The author lives with her rescued dogs and two cats.

    If you’re a pet lover, you’ll love this book which is filled with portraits of many charming down and out street dogs who meet Lady Luck herself when the author and her friends organize a grass roots organization devoted to helping them find homes in paradise – from a down and out, miserable existence in a shelter -- thanks to Alexandra and her group’s kindness and networking skill --s the dogs find loving homes in the U.S. and Europe. It’s very heartening to see so many people devoting their free time and resources to rescuing those with no voice. The dogs are great and always so grateful. The author writes with humour and the chapters are filled with different rescue adventures. A definite joy to read for animal lovers!

    These marvelous stories of rescue are a joy to read, and thereby to realize how these lovely dogs, whom you meet by name and through photos, escaped harrowing situations of neglect, abandonment and abuse. The dedication and heroic efforts of Alexandra George, the author, will engross you with these exciting adventures of saving these many dogs from the streets of Kosovo, as well as from a shelter, and finding them loving homes. A truly amazing network of help and rescue established internationally by all of these selfless efforts of the many involved. Bravo!
