After reading this book I first have to commend all of the animal rescue workers that dedicated so much of their time to saving the animals. I was moved to tears by your efforts. Cathy Scott did a tremendous job hitting on the vital and emotional aspects of this US disaster and the plight of the pets and their owners. I would highly reccomend this book for anyone that owns a pet or lives in an area that is subject to Hurricane, flooding or earthquake. In any case it is an excellent read that provided insight into something we, as a country, had not given thought to until it was too late for so many pets. This book affected me so much that I know where I will be when the next disaster stikes the US, helping to save the pets. A+!

Cathy Scott has done a remarkable job putting this book together, I was fortunate to get a hold of a pre-release copy and have found it to be the most intriguing book about true heroes that I have ever read or could imagine.

I'm a sucker for animals and well written books. I cried, some happy tears, some not so much. I was glad to learn about the PETS act. If you love animals, this is a must read. I also reccommend Dogtown, which has more stories from Best Friends (I hope to take a volunteer vacation there in the near future).
