From the steamy and colorful Florida Keys to the cool lakes and green forests of northern Michigan, “Once Upon a Shelter” tells of triumphs and tragedies of humans and animals as they pass through the doors of Linda Gottwald’s rescue organizations. Richie Moretti, millionaire playboy turned turtle rescuer; Hugh Hefner and his Bunnies who came to the aid of endangered rabbits; and Tugboat, the all-American mutt who flew to England only to be sent back in disgrace; are some of the many characters Gottwald encountered in her years as a shelter director. This poignant and heart-warming collection of stories, simply told, offers sensitive and real-life insight into animal sentience and the human condition.
