With their love and companionship, animals help to makeour lives better every day. But sometimes, to our utter amazement and everlasting gratitude, animals literally save our lives. “Daisy to the Rescue” celebrates over fifty of these heroic animals with stunning illustrated portraits and detailed accounts of their exploits. The book asks important questions about why these animals act the way they do often putting themselves in harm s way in the process.
Today, scientists vigorously debate whether other animals share our capacity for empathy, compassion, morality, and altruism, and amazing new research is continually revising our understanding of the human-animal bond. “Daisy to the Rescue” presents these findings and applies them to these extreme life-saving situations. Taken together, these rescue stories make a compelling case for the presence of compassion in other animals and for the vital importance of the human-animal bond.
The dramatic, moving stories in “Daisy to the Rescue” provide a hopeful message about our world. Not only do they contain startling evidence of the mental and emotional capacities of animals, but they also demonstrate the healing, transformative power of our intimate connection with those incredible beings with whom we share the world.”
