The founder and president of Animal Rescue Corps, the director of the Washington Animal Rescue League, and a former board member of the Humane Society, Scotlund Haisley has spent more than twenty years saving the lives of thousands of animals.
Wearing a respirator mask for protection from the piercing ammonia that hangs in the air, Scotlund charges headlong into places most of us recoil from viewing in a photograph. He pries open the doors of ramshackle sheds, freeing puppy-mill dogs from chicken wire cagesspaces so small they can barely turn around. One day he's in a laboratory saving animals who have outlived their usefulness for medical testing, and the next, showing an animal shelter a better way to care for society's abandoned creatures.
This gripping memoir takes readers on the road with Scotlund as he dangerously busts puppy mills and other places abusing animals, and gets them into the arms of loving, protective caregivers. It shares how Scotlund came to be the fearless leader he isrealizing in a twelve-step program as a youth that his life needed meaningand gives readers the support they need if they, too, are looking for their calling, or want to make a positive change in the world.
