With an introduction by Roger A. Caras, president of the ASPCA. The puppy was dying when James Mahoney found her. Molly was not the first dying animal the research veterinarian had seen. But Molly's struggle sent him barreling over rough Jamaican mountains in a borrowed car, searching for the equipment he'd need to save her. More than a story about a dog, this is the story of a rescued man. He asks himself questions: How can he spend his days with chimpanzees locked behind bars and still say that he loves them? What do we owe them for their participation in AIDS research? Why is saving a single runt puppy important? In the tradition of James Herriot, Mahoney's story spans fifty years of living with animals and with the two-legged primates who study them. Written by the man Jane Goodall called "one of the most gentle and compassionate people I know," SAVING MOLLY is an important addition to the debate on animal research and a heartfelt meditation on one man's life. "He is concerned about the pain and the suffering of the animals. That's what makes Jim Mahoney different."--Alex Pacheco founder of PETA.

When in doubt about a book. I go to .ca...and cut and paste the book title in the BOOKS section. The reviews are helpful and help me decide if I'll enjoy the book!

An review.
"No matter which side of the fence you're on regarding animal research, Dr. Mahoney's thoughtful and well written book is a must read. It's a wonderful peek into the lives of some courageous and caring individuals (animals and humans) who have given their lives to science so that all mankind may benefit. As an animal lover it's comforting to know that people like Dr. Mahoney are out there making the lives of research animals better and helping fight disease for all of us. Buy this book, read it, then make a contribution to the retirement homes of Dr. Mahoney's friends!"
