Read in October, 2010

This is one of the best "feel good" books I've ever read. If you ever doubted the power of having a vision, or of having a diverse group, or of having commitment to a goal, or having shared values then you will want to read this book because that is how they created one of the world's best animal sanctuaries.

Can you imagine taking in all kinds of critters in all stages of health and functionality, hundreds of them, with very scarce resources to support your efforts. That is exactly what this small band of animal lovers did over many years. But thanks to their persistence their efforts were recognized by others leading to funding and volunteers sufficient to enable their long term success. But although the problem of killing or abandoning unwanted pets is diminishing, there is still no end in sight of animals needing their lifelong protection.

So read this book, but be prepared for some tears when you learn about the condition of some of the animals they found. But because we are talking about BEST FRIENDS, these sad tears will turn to ones of happiness.

There have been many great accomplisments in our country; this is one of them.
