I thought this was a great book with a lot of valuable information although I didn't care for the way it was organized and I thought the authors tried too hard to address everything for everyone (but I guess I'm being picky - you can hardly fault them for that).

I volunteer weekly at the Memphis Humane Society but am not trained in animal disaster recovery. Nor was anyone associated with MHS at the time of Katrina, so sadly no delegation was sent to New Orleans even though we are only 6 hours aw
As a shelter volunteer I am also not trained in emergency animal rescue, though I too hope to change that. (I'm hoping a training session comes through my area some time soon!) I also wasn't surprised at the disorganization -- I find myself on much, much smaller scale stressful incidents and see how crazy it can be, I can only imagine how much that insanity can be magnified in a true catastrophe.

This book did remind me to go out and get my cats microchipped, something I have neglected to do on t

This books looks at the situation of animal victims in disasters in the United States and while giving first-hand stories of real situations, also gives suggestions for changes to make future disasters less hard for animals.
As an animal lover I found some of the stories difficult, but the overall tone of the book is one of hope for the future. The authors discuss the nature of the bond between humans and animals and talk about situations where people have refused to leave without their animals,
This was an interesting book but at times it felt frustratingly broad. As nice as it was to see a local group like Pasado's Safe Haven ([])ment... a few times, I also felt like the authors were trying to give at least a passing mention of everybody and so didn't really go in-depth on any one team or organization.

I was disappointed that this book wasn't written by someone who had actually been on the ground doing rescue work. There were certainly interviews and som
Someone gave me a copy of this book as I work on preparing a CART (County Animal Response Team) for Johnson County (where I live). It is one of the worst organized/edited books I've read in a long time. I'm skipping huge parts of it because it's a waste of time. I think it's really intended for the extreme animal rescuer who wants to read about their fellow rescuers and how obsessed they can all be. I don't really mean for that to sound harsh, but there are some seriously obsessed people out the ...more

All in all an good book. There were parts that were obviously hurriedly written in order to comlete the book and keep it current for the time of its publication. I kept wishing for a more indepth follow up book. As a rescuer myself I found the book interesting, but wished it had shared some more depth on some of the challenges of animal rescue.

I do think this book has enough reality in it that it should be read by anyone who loves animals.
Not what I expected. Did NOT like this at all. Was very boring. I thought it was going to be more about the animals themselves but all it talks about is the agencies and boring behind-the-scenes stuff.
You can tell a lot of work went into making this book. It wasnt exactly what I was expecting but very informative.
