Speaking Out for Animals

True Stories about Real People Who Rescue Animals

Compiled by Kim Stallwood

Lantern Books


Published:  June 2001


Kim Stallwood gathers together inspiring and powerful stories from many who are involved with animal advocacy at the most fundamental level—rescuing animals from torture, deprivation, or despair. These people are also advocates for a more compassionate relationship with animals or for the complete abolition of animal exploitation. Among those included are: Paul McCartney, Carla Lane, Anita Roddick, Jeffrey Masson, Maneka Gandhi, Steve Wise, Peter Singer, Sgt. Sherry Schlueter, and many others who have dedicated themselves to helping abused and neglected animals.

The stories of the rescuers and the rescued will offer comfort and inspiration to all those trying to care for those less fortunate than themselves and provide an eye-opening look at the horrific conditions under which many nonhuman animals are forced to live.

In addition, these stories offer ways for all people who may feel powerless to stop injustice and cruelty, wherever it may happen, to become actively involved in campaigning against violence and spreading compassion.
