A moving memoir from an award-winning author

A mother cat and her kittens, shot with a pellet gun. A poacher illegally stalking a bear. Peg Kehret tells these true stories and more as she invites readers into her life on a small wildlife sanctuary.

Vividly showing the joys of animal rescue while providing facts about the animals and birds she encounters, Kehret also shares the tragedy of her husband's sudden death, and the pain of losing Pete, the shelter cat who co-authored three of her books. Written with honesty, heart, and humor, Animals Welcome is a personal glimpse into the life of an author who loves animals, and the philosophy by which she lives.

The studio became known as the cat room and sported a sign reading, “Home for Wayward Cats: Strays Welcome.” It was a safe house that Kehret fancied as akin to safe houses for runaway slaves along the Underground Railroad.
