New York Times Bestselling authors Allen and Linda Anderson interviewed hundreds of volunteers, hurricane survivors, animal welfare organizations, and government officials for their national award-winning book Rescued: Saving Animals from Disaster. The result is an uplifting, inspiring, informative book that features the best humanity has to offer when people and animals need our help during a crisis. American Society of Journalists and Authors (ASJA) awarded Rescued with its prestigious Outstanding Book Award.
The catalyst for Rescued was the tragic situation during and after the Hurricane Katrina disaster -- thousands refusing to leave without their pets, and animals being viewed by official policies as "disposable" creatures. Using a pulse-pounding dramatic structure and heart-opening photos, the book presents the before, during, and after journeys of people separated from their animals and finding each other again. 
Allen and Linda wanted to make sure the largest animal rescue in history, with its important lessons about saving animals, would never be forgotten. With the benefit of their extensive training in animal rescue, they offer hope and practical suggestions, as well as important ways animal lovers can help in future catastrophes. The level of information is so high that college classes and veterinary schools use the book as a resource.

goes beyond tragedies to talk about animal rescue and sanctuary operations around the country, what volunteers and staff do, and how readers can help orphaned animals. The book puts attention on an unheralded world of animal shelters, organizations, and brave individuals who made a difference.

Volunteers, wore them. Laura says, “The T-shirts implied credibility for people who may or may not have been skilled. Volunteers showed up in flip-flops. We got hammered by the military because some animal rescue people weren’t wearing proper clothing. The HSUS T-shirts and spray-painting LA/SPCA on their vehicles got volunteers through military checkpoints into New Orleans. We had always had good relationships with local police.” From many accounts we heard, the police and military couldn’t.

Obviously a reason, so protect yourself and your animals. You just don’t know what will happen.” And if you have to evacuate, she says, “Leave with your animals! If you don’t, a rescuer has to try to save your pets. Or if you return to the disaster area for your pets, you could place yourself or other people at risk.” A great idea is to have a Rescue Alert sticker on the front door of your house. You can get this for free at the ASPCA website. It alerts emergency personnel that there are animals.
