Week of September 26, 2006 | Allen & Linda Anderson

This week we discuss the book RESCUED, written by Allen & Linda Anderson, and published by New World Library. 

Ms. Anderson and I discuss the importance of animal rescue. The book is a fascinating look at what happened in New Orleans after Katrina hit.

Hundreds of thousands of animals were left behind; and the reasons they were left behind is often times tragic and heartbreaking.  Authorities underestimated the bond between people and their animals. 

We also dispel the myth that people involved in animal rescue care more about animals than they do human beings. 

RESCUED is a balanced look at what went right and what went wrong. More importantly, it offers a plan on how we all can prepare for the evacuations that are occurring more frequently around the country and the world. 

This is the second installment in what is a series of interviews on books written about New Orleans post Katrina. Enjoy!
