The Compassion of Animals


“An inspiring collection of animal loyalty, love, and bravery.  No one can deny the emotional impact of this anecdotal book.”
Publishers Weekly

“Nobody writes about animals better than Kristin von Kreisler.”
Reader’s Digest

“Through dozens of inspiring true stories, Kristin von Kreisler makes a strong case for a ‘controversial premise’ – that animals demonstrate genuine acts of compassion toward others every day.  This book will remove the ‘controversial’ from the premise!”
Paul Irwin, president of the Humane Society of the U.S.

“Ms. von Kreisler is fearless, intriguing, and herself compassionate.  Highly recommended.”
Roger Caras, president of the A.S.P.C.A.

“Remember some of the feelings you had as a child for the animals to whom you were closest… That is what this book is all about.”  —Jeffrey Moussaieff Masson, author of Dogs Never Lie About Love

“An extraordinary combination of incredible research and deep feeling.”
Cleveland Amory, author of The Cat Who Came for Christmas
