In a compelling story, movingly illustrated, the issue of animal abandonment is brought to life. Discovered by the realtor, Maggie is brought towards the pound where her puppies are born. Maggie is offered her second chance— taken to the new town shelter, exactly where she is eventually adopted. This knowledge galvanizes Jeff and his classmates to successfully plan and petition their town council to build an animal shelter. When Jeff, a fourth-grader, reads a newspaper story about Maggie's puppies being adopted while Maggie is not, he learns from his teacher that Maggie is going to be euthanized if no one adopts her. Maggie, a pregnant lab mix, is left behind in her people's deserted home. Maggie's Second Chance is depending on the true story of Texas fourth-graders who founded an animal shelter in their town. The final page offers factual comprehensive info on the way to help abandoned dogs.
