This children story is about a group of animals who were previously abused, bullied, neglected, or endangered by humans, living together on an unconventional sanctuary. This once peaceful sanctuary was disrupted when two villains attempt to steal a few prized animals from an old farmer. Both the farmer and the animals face multiple challenges. Will they be able to overcome these dangers?
This exciting yet emotional story touches on environmental concerns, animal abuse, arrogance, and bullying. It also emphasizes the importance of recycling, respect, team work, and self-esteem to all readers. Each individual animal has different personality traits and strength; as they embrace and support one another to fight off many hardships which they are faced with.
This is the story of many, many heroes and heroines, volunteers and employees alike, all of whom fought their way, making tedious progress, against unsurmountable odds and waged a long but winning battle…for the love of Valencia County Animal Shelter (VCAS) animals. Over a period of forty years, these individuals gave of themselves and selflessly stood up for the lives of the forgotten animals incarcerated at VCAS, once branded as the Dungeon of Death. Captured in this book are some of the many heart-rending stories heralding their challenges, achievements, and their boundless respect for life. Spotlighted is the game-changer for this transformation: their life-saving and innovative rescue-transport program.

For the vast majority of people, the bond they share with their dog or cat companion is a familial one, born of love and mutual affection. Indeed, interspecies relationships in the world are not rare and they are relationships that humans generally celebrate as evidence of the interconnectedness and beauty of life on Earth. But according to the loudest voices in the American animal rights movement today, such relationships are incompatible with the rights of animals when one of the parties is a human being. Living with companion dogs and cats is, according to this view, a “necessary evil” at best; at worst, it is a relationship between “master” and “slave” and those animals would be better off if they did not exist at all. With the belief that the “solution” to all dog and cat suffering lies in their eventual extinction, the contemporary animal rights movement not only preaches that the lives of dogs and cats are dispensable, their deliberate elimination of no moral consequence, their disappearance from our planet no tragedy to mourn, it embraces an agenda to which no other rights-based movement in history has ever subscribed: the deliberate annihilation of those it has pledged to protect. Welcome Home explores the dangers to animals posed by this misanthropic, pro-extinction position, challenging the logical fallacies, factual inaccuracies, and ethical compromises upon which it is based. In its place, Welcome Home offers an alternative animal rights philosophy, an optimistic and hopeful approach which champions the rights of dogs and cats to the many emotional, physical, and evolutionary advantages conferred by their cohabitation with humans, but, most important of all, the right to their very existence.
