Overview

For those who love animals comes this riveting account of an extraordinary, dedicated team of more than 3,500 trained volunteers. EARS (Emergency Animal Rescue Service) takes on the task that the Red Cross and other human-focused organizations simply can't: helping animals survive natural and man-made disasters. You will be moved by the courageous, poignant, and at times humorous stories, including:



The desperate search by a 14-year-old girl to locate her missing cats
Libby, the dog who was rescued from Texas oil fields and is now the official taste-tester at a dog bakery in California
How a hoist saved a cow from raging Texas floodwaters
The resourceful skunk who found his safe haven in a portable toilet
How Bumpus, the fantastic, fearless feline, survived disfiguring burns and became a hero
Plus many more!

The wrath of nature in the form of fire, flood, hurricane, or earthquake takes an enormous toll on animals as well as people. But, while there has long been help to save humans, there wasn't anyone who focused on helping the animals. This is why EARS—Emergency Animal Rescue Service—came into being. Inside are the real-life stories of EARS volunteers, and how their efforts have saved countless animals from certain death. You will read about the touching reunions of pet owners with the cherished pets they feared were dead. You will appreciate the wonderful service that EARS and its thousands of volunteers provide to all of us with their rescue efforts. Most of all these stories will make you laugh, cry, and marvel at the deep connection humans and animals share.



These and other stories are sure to inspire andthrill as well as make you appreciate the wonderful bond that exists between animals and the special people who care enough to save them.

Meet the Author

Terri Crisp
Terri Crisp, executive director of the internationally known Emergency Animal Rescue Services, has been saving animals for more than 20 years. Hailed as "an American hero" by Reader's Digest and "One of the most inspiring women in America" by NBC News, her journey to rescue the pets, livestock, and wildlife left behind in times of catastrophe has taken her to forty-six disasters, including every type except a volcano.

Beginning in 1983 with the California floods at Alviso, Crisp's plans for becoming a high school art teacher took an amazing turn. After notoriety gained through the San Jose Mercury News, Emergency Animal Rescue Services was formed in 1987 with the help of The United Animal Nations. With Crisp as director, the program soon grew from an ambitious idea into a national disaster response and recovery program. Volunteers continue to step forward, blending the organization's vision with long hours, dedication, and unwavering passion. Crisp herself travels the country providing proper training and offering inspiration through a continuous series of free training seminars. Crisp has also shared the EARS vision and day-to-day rescue efforts with 20/20, ABC News, the Wall Street Journal, the USA Today, and many other media outlets.

Emergency Animal Rescue Stories is her second book, following the best-selling Out of Harm's Way which chronicled earlier disaster recovery efforts. When Crisp's not preparing for disaster or assisting in the lengthy recovery efforts, she shares a peaceful mountain top ranch with her husband, three children,13 cats, 3 dogs, 3 parrots, 3 cows, and 2 goats in the Sierra foothills of northernCalifornia.
