English: Beautiful Joe was a dog from the town of Meaford, Ontario, whose story inspired the bestselling 1893 novel Beautiful Joe, which contributed to worldwide awareness of animal cruelty and sparked the creation of the modern humane movement. Margaret Marshall Saunders (1861–1947) first learned about the abused dog and was so touched by Joe's story that she wrote a novel-length, fictionalized, autobiographical version of it, entitled Beautiful Joe. Saunders relocated the story to a small town in Maine in order to qualify for a literary contest sponsored by the American Humane Education Society, which she subsequently won.
