Overview

Inspiring lessons of patience, trust, compassion, healing, and love from the animals who hold a cherished place in our homes and hearts

Animals have the amazing ability to fulfill the most basic human needs: love, affection, companionship, even survival. Their positive influence can have a profound effect on our everyday lives. Since founding the Angel Animals organization in 1996, Allen and Linda Anderson have heard from thousands of people worldwide, who have shared personal stories of how animals have enriched their lives. Angel Animals is a collection of these testaments--an inspiring tapestry of tales spotlighting the spiritual truths that animals teach. From dogs, cats, and horses, to bears, dolphins, and deer, the animals featured in Angel Animals have not only led people to rediscover the meaning of courage, loyalty, and forgiveness . . . but they have also proven that miracles are possible.

"Angel Animals says it all on our love and need for animals in our lives."--Roger Caras, President Emeritus, American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

Editorial Reviews

Library Journal - Library Journal
Many people are quick to tell stories of the often incredible bond between them and their pets, regardless of type. This book celebrates the depth of that bond. Personal accounts are arranged in three main sections: what animals teach us about relationships, about handling life's challenges, and about death, dying, and the afterlife. Each chapter contains upward of a dozen narratives illustrating concepts such as unconditional love, family harmony, grieving, trusting, and living healthfully. The Andersons, who cofounded an organization called Angel Animals, conduct workshops for pet owners to deepen the bond between them and their pets. Fans of the "Chicken Soup..." series will appreciate this book--it's a warm-fuzzy for those who have experienced a close human-animal bond and is recommended only for public libraries where that readership exists.--Edell Marie Schaefer, Brookfield P.L., WI Copyright 1999 Cahners Business Information.
