Phil, ailing and unemployed, took an orphaned fawn into his trailer and now walks the woods with the devoted stag. "I don't know what I'd do without Li'l Buck," Phil declares simply. "I guess I'd be crazy."

Walt, a retired pipe fitter, says, "Animals...take your heartache away. I lost my boy to drugs and my horse saved my life--just through the therapy of riding."

Don and Lillian devote their time advocating for animal rights and bringing home lost animals. According to Don, "Emotionally, it's an endorphin rush to be with [the animals]. On the metaphysical level, they give us meaning in life."

With these and many other compelling, heartfelt stories, Saved , in the words of Rita Mae Brown, "proves once again that love rescues us all."

A must read for anyone who loves animals or wants to explore the healing that animals and people provide one another. Winegar's writing is compelling and full of love for her subject.
