This story of a dedicated woman and the extraordinary animal sanctuary she created “will touch all readers”—Includes photos! (Booklist)
What do a toothless pony, an aging steer, a tattletale sheep, a bed-sharing rooster, and a blind horse have in common? The Catskills Animal Sanctuary, founded by Kathy Stevens in 2001. Leaving behind eleven years as an educator, and drawing on her childhood on a horse farm, Stevens took a broken-down farm cluttered with junk and created a refuge for abused and displaced livestock of all kinds.
With limited funds but an army of enthusiastic volunteers motivated by compassion, the neglected acres of land soon featured a newly built home, a repaired barn, and the fences and shelters to house the more than thousand creatures that eventually find their way to the rescue. Where the Blind Horse Sings is an “affecting and thought-provoking” story of inspiration, dedication, and above all, love (Publishers Weekly).
