It shows there is a need for us all to work together, no matter our perspective, and that there is much to learn. The millions of stray, feral, abused and neglected animals really are counting on us.

Quotes From A Few People Included In This Book
"Animal rescue" is a new concept that is building popularity in America's companion animal welfare movement. There are many different groups with different philosophies, but we have a great way of working together in the interest of animals who need us. It's so important for the success of our mostly nonprofit, mostly all-volunteer groups to get together to get the word out about our missions. I'm very honored to be a part of this important book and animal rescue in general."

"It is with great honor to be a part of this book. Being a small licensed nonprofit shelter in a rural area, donations and pats on the back are far and few between. Thank you!"

Its an honor to be included in a book about rescue. It is a subject very near and dear to my heart,especially when it comes to Puppy-mill dogs.
Mary Stickney, Nebraska
Doing rescue is like diving into an endlessly deep, cold sea. The experience is shocking, physically depleting, yet like the swimmer who dries off and steps on the shore, once a rescue is complete, the exhilaration can't be duplicated. There is a sea waiting for rescuers. One dive yields the rescue of another precious pet.
Lavonne Redferrin, Proverbs 12:10 Animal Rescue
To have a love for animals is good, but to take the time to save an animal is Great. It is an awesome act to save an animal from the cruelties of today's world, and through our experiences we hope to inspire others to take the same action against the fight against homeless pet over-population as well as to receive the same inspirations and desires to want to help.
