Overview

When Dogs Heal tells the stories of people who believe that the best medicine may not always be found at a pharmacy or in a doctor’s office. Sometimes it comes in the form of a four-legged friend.



Delve into the powerful stories of people living with HIV and the dogs who saved them, through striking full-color portraits and personal accounts. Compiled by three well-known leaders in their fields—fine art dog photographer Jesse Freidin, HIV adolescent specialist Dr. Robert Garofalo, and LGBTQ advocate and journalist Zach Stafford—When Dogs Heal illustrates a refreshing, beautiful and totally unique portrait of HIV infused with a deep message of hope for young adults.



Changing the narrative surrounding HIV, When Dogs Heal is about love, connection, and survival, featuring all kinds of people who are thriving and celebrating life, thanks to the compassion and unconditional love of their dogs. A portion of the proceeds of this book will go to support Fred Says, an organization dedicated to financially supporting HIV+ teen healthcare.
