"In their innocence and wisdom, in their connection to the earth and its most ancient rhythms, animals show us a way back to a home they have never left."
So says Susan Chernak McElroy, a cancer survivor who credits much of her triumph over terminal illness to the love of the animals in her life. From the courage of her dog, Keesha, who taught McElroy how to face challenges with grace and acceptance, to the uncanny victory over leukemia she witnessed in a foundling kitten, McElroy offers a unique and compelling chronicle of her healing journey. In Animals as Teachers and Healers, McElroy shares her story along with other true testaments from many other souls who have been touched, for a moment or for a lifetime, by the loving energies of animals.

"Susan McElroy has compiled a unique and moving testimony of the gifts that animals have bestowed on their human companions, some life-saving, others life-sustaining and truly miraculous. The ultimate importance of this book is to elevate the status and significance of animals in society, which is long overdue for the good of the animals, and for humanity."
-- Michael W. Fox, Vice President, The Humane Society of the United States
