    A very limited overview of the impact of a few specific disaster situations (hurricane, flood, oil spill, hurricane/flood again) on a few specific animals (dogs/cats, chickens, sea birds, lab rats). I appreciated the organizational structure (dividing animals into proximity to humans and disaster), but in total it all felt like skimming the surface. It almost felt like a thesis, but written for non-academics.

I appreciated the organizational structure (dividing animals into proximity to humans and disaster), but in total it all felt like skimming the surface. It almost felt like a thesis, but written for non-academics. I did learn about a few more horrors that I didn't know including what happens to lab animals in flooding. The author also sketched out potential changes in the Animal Welfare Act and supplementary behavioral changes around the PETS Act. Surprisingly enough, I wish she'd given more time to her own experiences. It seemed like there could be a whole separate memoir on her time as a Katrina animal shelter volunteer. She had the material.

    This was not what I was expecting at all, but informative nonetheless. I had thought it would talk about the best methods when working in animal relief during disasters; instead, it talked about the numerous problems facing animal relief in this country, in ways I didn't even think about. For example, all the animals in research labs or on factory farms won't ever be saved if there's a disaster. Nobody will help them, and they will all die miserable deaths in the name of "science" or "food". Alt This was not what I was expecting at all, but informative nonetheless.

Although Ms. Irvine does give some answers and solutions, they are very broad and high-level, and not really applicable to those of us interested in this field. Still, I give her credit for expanding my view of whom needs saving.
