2012 Certificate of Excellence Winner from the Cat Writer’s Association!
Allie’s 2nd book is a must-read for anyone who loves animals and wants to do more to help them live safely. Defending the Defenseless: A Guide to Protecting and Advocating for Pet is for anyone who wants to join a growing crusade to bring animal protection to its rightful place in a civilized society. Allie wrote Defending the Defenseless for three primary reasons: she knows a great deal about animal protection, she is frequently asked by others how they can get involved as well and there is not currently a lot of information out there on how to get involved with helping animals.
This book guides readers through the variety of ways they can help companion animals and offers practical tips to get involved, from donating money to volunteering at animal shelters, from opposing animal experimentation to raising children to protect animals. Phillips shares her own personal experiences in her work with protecting animals, which she describes as “some involve outrageous joy, and others involve life-altering devastation.”
