“A treasure chest of information on how we can best live with animals of all kinds.”
—Jim Fowler, star of Mutual of Omaha’s Wild Kingdom
and former wildlife correspondent for Today
“There are many who help animals by learning how to do so. Then there are those who are blessed with a sense that transcends learning—true animal healers. Marc Morrone epitomizes the latter and is one of our gifts to man’s ‘favorite kingdom.’ And now, this book is Marc’s way of sharing his gift with us.”
—Dr. Marty Goldstein, director of Smith Ridge Veterinary Center (South Salem, New York), and author of Nature of Animal Healing
“When many of Marc’s orthodox customers requested kosher bird food for Passover, Marc asked me for advice on how to comply with their request. He then became a dedicated provider of kosher pet foods for a variety of animals, and I continue to be impressed by his enthusiasm for what he does, his broad knowledge of animal needs, and his joy in providing the greatest possible satisfaction for all of his customers.”
—Rabbi Israel Chait
