Summary A moving memoir from an award-winning author. A mother cat and her kittens, shot with a pellet gun. A poacher illegally stalking a bear. Peg Kehret tells these true stories and more as she invites readers into her life on a small wildlife sanctuary. She writes about animal rescue while providing facts about the animals and birds she meets. Mrs. Kehret also shares the tragedy of her busband's sudden death, and the pain of losing Pete, the shelter cat who co-authored three of her books. Written with honesty, heart, and humor, Animals Welcomeis as personal glimpse into the life of an author who loves animals, and the philosophy by which she lives.
