When your home has a revolving door for abused and abandoned animals, keeping pets takes on a whole new dimension! Sometimes hilarious, sometimes heartbreaking, Born Without a Tail chronicles the true-life adventures of two animal rescuers living with an ever-changing house full of pets. The author takes us on a journey from childhood through adulthood, sharing tales, misadventures and insights garnered from a lifetime of encounters with a menagerie of twenty remarkable animals.
I'm sure you've heard of animal abuse...but have you ever heard about animal abuse where the abusers are the animals and the "abusee" is the human who has rescued them?
That's how some of the stories unfold in "Born Without a Tail", a true-life chronicle of 20 odd years of pet rescue. 1/3 of the royalties from sales of this book is donated to humane group Valley Save-a-Pet for their humane programs.
The book begins by sharing the childhood and young adult stories that shaped the author's affinity for pets and set the stage for some 20 years of volunteering for VSAP. The rescues are stories of the abused, the abandoned, and the unadoptable animals that entered the author's life and ultimately stayed.
"If you [also] love animals, I can guarantee you will adore this gem. The love Cayr and her friend, Dalene, have for these animals is clearly portrayed in this moving yet uplifting book. They are animal lovers with big hearts for not only domestic animals but for the waifs and strays too. I couldn't put this one down. I thought it was an absolutely brilliant book, especially as I myself share the same passions as the author and her "life mate" have for animals.
This is a tale that will appeal to animal lovers and perhaps children too."
"Born Without a Tail captures the real scenario of those people who simply find it impossible to turn away, or say no to, a stray or an animal in need of human intervention and love. Wulff writes with an imagery that is easily visualized by the reader. Anyone who enjoys animals in the least will appreciate Wulff's adventures with these four-legged creatures."
