They are often treated like objects of possession rather than the precious being that they are.

Dog-lover and author Laura Lavayén delivers her compelling new book, Dogs, Owners of the City (published by Trafford Publishing), a plea for readers to take note of their responsibility to protect and care for dogs.

Lavayén has created a fictional story to add a more personal appeal to her campaign to help dogs. Readers will follow a love story between Marceala and Samuel, but will revel in the way dogs are involved in their lives.

As Lavayén explains, far too many dogs roam city streets without food, shelter or the loving touch of a human. She believes dogs’ rights and feelings are being ignored. “They are often treated like objects of possession rather than the precious being that they are,” says Lavayén.

Although protective laws are in place, and many organizations, such as the ASPCA, are dedicated to rescuing dogs, Lavayén sees that the problem persists despite these safe measures. With Los dueños de la ciudad, she expounds that dogs should matter much more than it seems they do in our society. She believes people can work together to raise awareness about this issue, and that dogs and people are meant to protect each other.

Lavayén points out that while humans try to live life without hardships, there are still many factors that can bring catastrophe and disaster. In these times, the human spirit rallies and lifts people’s spirits. However, when dogs were domesticated, they learned to depend on humans for survival, and Lavayén insists that this is why they deserve our respect.
