Do Unto Animals

A heartfelt and richly illustrated guide to the animals in our world—pets at home, wildlife in the backyard, and livestock on the farm—that encourages readers to interact with animals in a more caring and thoughtful way. Part practical guide, part memoir of Tracey Stewarts's life with animals, and part testament to the power of giving back, Do Unto Animals is a gift for those who know that the better our interactions with animals are, the better our own lives will be. This book is for those whose lives are enriched by animals, for those who want to understand more about animal behaviour, and for those who are interested in learning what they can do for animals in return. 

Tracey is on a mission to change how we interact with animals. Since she was a little girl, she considered animals her friends and her saviors. In her mid-twenties, she became a veterinary tech and later a passionate advocate for the nonprofit Animal Haven. When her kids came along, she worked with animals to teach her family about responsibilty and the deep satisfaction that comes from giving back. And most recently, the entire Stewart clan has decamped to a farm in New Jersey (USA) to operate an affiliate of Farm Sanctuary, a place that provides a permanent, happy home to rescued farm animals. 

Through hundreds of charming illustrations and a few homemade projects, Do Unto Animals provides a quirky, knowledgable insight into the secret lives of animals. She shares information on the kindest ways to live with them, and what we can do for them. She knows how to speak "dog-ese" and "cat-ese", why mutts are the most worthwhile companions, and how to "virtually adopt" an animal. In the backyeard, we learn about building a bee house, or find a place to bird-watch.
