About the Author

Jacki Skole is a journalist and adjunct professor of communication. She launched her journalism career at CNN, where she was part of a team that produced several award-winning documentaries. Jacki has also produced series and specials for Animal Planet and HGTV. Following the birth of her first child, Jacki took a hiatus from doing journalism and began teaching it at La Salle University. She's since taught several writing and media-related courses at Rider University and Raritan Valley Community College. Jacki and her husband live in New Jersey with their three daughters-two human, one canine. Perhaps not surprisingly, it is the canine daughter who served as the inspiration for Dogland.


"Dogland explores the serious issues facing American shelter dogs and the heroes advocating for them. It's a page-turner...well worth reading." -- Bark & Swagger "When journalist Skole adopted a 'quirky' mixed-breed puppy from a rescue shelter in New Jersey, she hadn't counted on the journey she'd find herself taking in search of the pup's origins...Those who have given their hearts and homes to shelter dogs will find much here to validate their love, but ultimately the book is meant as a call to action." -- Publishers Weekly "Dogland tackles a complex, emotional topic ... and opens readers' eyes to how we can help these faithful companions." -- Animal Sheltering Magazine "Skole offers a fresh look at dog owner education, spay/neuter programs, and how some shelters achieve more successful adoptions through required training courses...Dogland is a book that needs to be read and discussed by concerned people involved in rescue." -- Flagstaff-Sedona Dog Magazine
