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
Ms. Anderson and I discuss the importance of
animal rescue. The book is a fascinating look at what happened in
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
post Katrina. Enjoy!
