Ayudantes de animales: santuarios

Jennifer Keats Curtis (author)

Publisher: Arbordale Publishing ISBN: 9781607186472

Así como los gatitos y los perritos crecen hasta convertirse en gatos y perros adultos, los bebés de los animales salvajes también crecen. Estos animales adultos puede que ya no sean encantadores o adorables. Sus instintos salvajes empiezan a notarse. Pueden llegar a crecer mucho y hasta ser peligrosos. ¿Qué pasa con esas mascotas exóticas, cuando sus dueños se dan cuenta que ya no pueden cuidarlos pero tampoco regresarlos a la vida salvaje? ¿Y qué pasa con los grandes depredadores que están heridos o se enferman? Este diario fotográfico lleva a los lectores “detrás de las cámaras” en cinco santuarios sin fines de lucro y zoológicos de rescate, además de una granja (de atención) que han abierto sus puertas y sus corazones a los animales que necesitan ayuda desesperadamente
