Terri Crisp is the director of the Emergency Animal Rescue Service, a branch of the United Animal Nations. She traces her love for animals to her childhood when she often adopted stray cats and dogs. She experienced her first emergency animal rescue as a volunteer with the Humane Society of Santa Clara Valley, California in 1983, saving animals trapped by a flood in Alvisto, California. When she discovered that most animal shelters and humane societies do not have disaster plans, she began using her vacation time and sick leave to work as an animal rescuer. She has rescued animals after the Exxon-Valdez oil spill, Hurricane Andrew, and the 1993 Missouri floods. Her book, Out of Harm's Way: The Extraordinary True Story of One Woman's Lifelong Devotion to Animal Rescue catalogs her attempts to save animals during these disasters. She has appeared on countless television shows, including the NBC Nightly News and the Oprah Winfrey Show, and her work has earned her numerous honors, such as ABC's "Person of the Week" and Reader's Digest's "Hero for Today.
