Saving Lives and Changing Hearts: Animal Sanctuaries and Rescue Centers
by Rob Laidlaw
It's always heartbreaking when you hear stories of animals being mistreated. This book counteracts the negativity by describing the successful rescue and rehabilitation of suffering animals around the world. Donkeys, bears, elephants, tortoises, pelicans, even pigs, have all benefited from the care they receive in animal rescue centres.
Besides the uplifting stories, Laidlaw also describes the differences between a good sanctuary and a bad one, the difficulties of running a centre, and the ways that kids can help.
A good book for fostering caring and empathy for all wild animals.
