Description

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. With an introduction by Roger A. Caras, president of the ASPCA. "He is concerned about the pain and the suffering of the animals. That's what makes Jim Mahoney different." --Alex Pacheco, founder of PETA

display_description The puppy was on the verge of death when James Mahoney found her. Molly was not the first dying animal the research veterinarian had seen-but her struggle touched his heart, and sent him barreling over rough Jamaican mountains in a borrowed car during his vacation, searching for the equipment he'd need to save her. Saving Molly is not only the story of a rescued dog, but also of a rescued man. As he cares for the runt of the litter and raises her, 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 medical research? Why is saving a single puppy important?
