Animal Advocate

…. animals are here with us and not for us. They are not disposable items. Animals are living, breathing, and complex creatures with feelings that deserve to be treated with kindness and respect.
—Suzana Gartner, A Voice for Animals

“It is an extremely eclectic and easy-to-read volume in which she examines ‘the close connection we share with our beloved companion animals and the plight of homeless animals. It [also] bridges the gap between beloved pets and homeless pets in shelters [and] offers solutions to end the shelter debacle.’ Suzana also writes about the lives of farm animals, research animals, animals in captivity, and wildlife.”
