Description-

  • Rescued tells the inspiring stories of dedicated organizations and heroic volunteers who saved animals and reunited them with loved ones after Hurricane Katrina. Heart-wrenching experiences and dramatic action photos open a portal into the unheralded world of animal shelters, sanctuaries, and charities that are emerging nationwide and becoming an important social movement. Chock-full of lifesaving information, this book prepares you to quickly and safely evacuate with animals in any emergency.

Their mission is to help people discover and benefit from the miraculous powers of animals. In 1996 they co-founded the Angel Animals Network to increase love and respect for all life through the power of story. In 2004 Allen and Linda Anderson were recipients of a Certificate of Commendation from Governor Tim Pawlenty in recognition of their contributions as authors in the state of Minnesota. In 2007 their book Rescued: Saving Animals from Disaster won the American Society of Journalists and Authors Outstanding Book award. Allen and Linda's work has been featured on NPR, the Washington Post, USA Today, NBC's Today show, The Montel Williams Show, ABC Nightly News, Cat Fancy, Dog Fancy, national wire services, London Sunday Times, BBC Radio, Beliefnet, ivillage, Guideposts, and other national, regional, and international media and news outlets.

They donate a portion of revenue from their projects to animal shelters and animal-welfare organizations and speak at fundraisers.

Reviews-

  • Publisher's Weekly

    July 24, 2006
    In this mix of heartrending personal stories and practical information, the Andersons (Angel Animals
    ) explore why, out of 16,000 animals rescued in Louisiana after Hurricanes Katrina and Rita, only 3,000 were reunited with their families (many were adopted or taken into foster homes), and find the reasons in the loss of records, the chaotic conditions evacuees faced and euthanizing of unclaimed pets by some shelters. Directed to leave their pets behind when Katrina was bearing down and denied entry to Red Cross shelters with their animals, many residents waited out the storm at home rather than abandon their pets. The authors focus on three major organizations (the ASPCA, the American Humane Association and the Humane Society of the U.S.) that, buttressed by volunteers from all over the country, played a key role in saving animal lives. Believing that domesticated pets are family members and that by helping them one is also helping people, the Andersons detail what has been learned from Katrina and provide instructions for readers in the event that they face an evacuation. The authors stress that owners must take primary responsibility for their pets and that rescue volunteers should be properly trained. The Andersons can be saccharine, but their advice is well taken. 16 pages of color photos.

  • Marc Bekoff, professor of biology at the University of Colorado and editor of the Encyclopedia of Animal Behavior "A must-read that I couldn't put down, Rescued will move you to action."
