Description
If you think animal shelters are simply places to find new pets, or sadly leave the old ones behind, think again. Lost and Found takes you inside a rural shelter to unveil the complex mix of people and animals, emotion and ideology. It's a place where life and death decisions are made as regularly as coffee.<P>Come with Elizabeth Hess inside one of the most humane shelters in the East and enter into the lives of the animals and their dedicated caretakers. This book will bring you into the dog kennels to meet Grover, Smokey, Buster, and the rest of the gang as they await their fate. You'll go into the cat rooms, where the rabbits, birds, and ferrets also live. You'll get to know every one of them by name before following them into their new homes.<P>You'll also ride in the shelter ambulance to rescue wounded animals and go out to investigate cruelty reports with the chief Humane Officer. You'll find out what it's really like inside a puppy mill, you'll meet a herd of emu, check the respiratory rates of horses at the Rough Riders Ranch, and visit a pit-bull sanctuary where ex-fighters are being retrained for therapy work inside nursing homes.<P>Lost and Found will take readers into a subterranean animal culture that most people don't ordinarily see when they hurry through a shelter. This is a world where people and animals interact with an intensity that will amaze you, a microcosm of life that shows the intimate connections we have with our animals. And that's the true drama and the moral of this exquisite book.
