Animal rescuers are a special breed of people. They are the ones who take in abused, neglected or abandoned animals and help them find loving, forever homes. In a world with rampant pet overpopulation, animal rescuers play a special role in our communities.
“Rescue an Animal and Save a Life” is an e-book about animal rescue and pet adoption. It’s written by Melissa Andrews, a dedicated pet rescuer. Like many animal rescuers, Ms. Andrews grew up in a home with pets. As an adult, she and her husband have helped rescue many dogs and cats from less than ideal situations.
In the book, Ms. Andrews shares her personal stories, as well as those of her friends who also rescue animals. Many are success stories, but one is a cautionary tale about an organization that was less than truthful about the history and health of the dog they were adopting out.
From determining the best pet sources, to preparing a home properly, to getting involved in the rewarding world of animal rescue, this book covers all the basics of pet adoption. There is also a section on research, resources, and links to assist the reader in their quest for responsible pet adoption.
“How to Rescue an Animal and Save a Life” (Kindle Edition) is available at Amazon.com for $2.99.
