The popularity of Mutual Rescue’s films inspired a book, Mutual Rescue, How Adopting a Homeless Animal Can Save You, Too by Carol Novello (Grand Central Publishing, 2019).

In sections titled “Heart,” “Body,” “Mind,” and “Connection,” Novello weaves an engaging personal narrative through a series of authentic stories of mutual rescue, citing relevant scientific research along the way.

“A reading experience that is as touching as it is inspiring for all animal lovers who want to find out more about the magical, spiritual connection between humans and animals.” (Publisher’s note in the German language version.)
