Love and Healing at an Animal Sanctuary

About The Book

Come visit the Catskill Animal Sanctuary, where “love is spoken.” In her first book, Kathy Stevens, founder of CAS, shares her stories that shows the rehabilitative power of love—a guardian sheep, an aqua-phobic duck, the titular blind horse, and more.

After giving up her career as a teacher, Kathy Stevens bought a run-down old farm to create the Catskill Animal Sanctuary, a safe haven for abused and unwanted animals.

In this deeply moving account, she shares stories readers won’t be able to forget, of…

  • Rambo, a sheep who informs the staff when another animal is in trouble
  • Paulie, a former cockfighting rooster who eats lunch with humans
  • Dino, an old toothless pony who survived a fire
  • And many more

Alongside these horses, roosters, pigs, sheep, rabbits, cows, and other animals is a staff of loving humans for whom every animal life, even that of a frog rushed to the vet for emergency surgery, has merit. Reading this book can profoundly—and joyously—change your life.

With a foreword by Elizabeth Marshall Thomas, New York Times bestselling author of The Hidden Life of Dogs and The Tribe of Tiger.
