Publisher Comments:

More than anything else, this is a book about love. Written by the founder of Catskill Animal Sanctuary, a haven for abused farm animals, this book depicts a world in which distinctions between 'human" and 'animal" are meaningless, a world where care and affection trump years of neglect and abuse. In this deeply moving and heartfelt book, you will hear about Dino, an old toothless pony who survived a fire and Cinnamon, a recent addition, who came, timid and thin, with a bullet hole in her left eye. Alongside these horses, roosters, pigs, sheep, rabbits, cows, and other animals is a staff of hilarious and always loving humans. Reading this book will profoundly'"and joyously'"change your life.

Synopsis:

"The ideas behind Stevens's stories--such as the inherent equality and nobility of all species--are affecting and thought-provoking."--Publishers Weekly

Synopsis:

More than anything else, this is a book about love. In this deeply moving account, you will hear about Rambo, a sheep who informs the staff when another animal is in trouble; and Paulie, a former cockfighting rooster who eats lunch with humans; Dino, an old toothless pony who survived a fire; and many more. Alongside these horses, roosters, pigs, sheep, rabbits, cows, and other animals is a staff of loving humans for whom every animal life, even that of a frog rushed to the vet for emergency surgery, has merit. Reading this book can profoundly—and joyously—change your life.

I've always been an animal lover, but this book really opened my eyes to the realities of the cruelties used in mass production of animals for food. I applaud Kathy Stevens for the work she is doing to raise awareness of this horrible practice and for establishing a sanctuary to save these animals one at a time. The stories she relates about these abused and rejected animals are truly heartfelt.
