Saving Animals from Volcanoes

From the Series Rescuing Animals from Disasters

In October 2010, scientists in Indonesia made a frightening discovery. Mount Merapi, a powerful volcano on the island of Java, was about to erupt. Soon the homes of thousands of villagers and farmers would not be safe. For many people trying to quickly evacuate the danger zone, there would not be enough time to move their pets and livestock to a safe location. Would anyone rescue the animals that were left behind? In Saving Animals from Volcanoes, readers will meet the courageous people and organizations that rush in to save animals when disasters strike. From rescue workers who risk entering the volcano’s danger zone to save wild animals, livestock, and pets, to volunteers who take in abandoned animals and care for them while they recover, the inspiring and true stories in this book are a must for any young animal lover.
