Saving Animals after Earthquakes

by Joyce L. Markovics

Part of a Series: Rescuing Animals from Disasters.

Natural disasters, such as the January 2010 earthquake in Haiti and the March 2011 earthquake and tsunami in Japan, left humans and animals alike without food, water, or shelter. This book offers information about recent quakes and animal rescues. Readers will be enthralled to learn that dogs Bella and Deiter, recovered from rubble in Haiti in 2010, had also been rescued from Hurricane Katrina in 2005. The captioned color photos, some heart-wrenching and some uplifting, are full of action. Back matter (which includes a glossary, reading list, bibliography, Web address, and an index) makes this a great resource for report writers.
