The founder and president of Animal Rescue Corps shares dramatic true stories of saving dogs, cats, horses, and other creatures in desperate need. Wearing a respirator mask for protection from the piercing ammonia that hangs in the air and with law enforcement officials at his side, Scotlund Haisley infiltrates puppy mills, animal fighting operations, and other large-scale cases of animal cruelty, freeing animals from a life of wire cages, filth, and starvation—and sending them on their way to loving, protective caregivers. Filled with inspiring accounts of heroic rescues, Compassion in Action is a gripping ride through the underworld of those who profit from the enslavement of animals. From dogs trained for fighting to emaciated horses to animals stranded during natural disasters, the author and his team save animals from heartbreaking conditions, changing attitudes—and laws—along the way. It is a story of hope for the most vulnerable among us.

The founder and president of Animal Rescue Corps, the director of the Washington Animal Rescue League, and a former board member of the Humane Society, Scotlund Haisley has spent more than twenty years saving the lives of thousands of animals. Wearing a respirator mask for protection from the piercing ammonia that hangs in the air, Scotlund charges headlong into places most of us recoil from viewing in a photograph. He pries open the doors of ramshackle sheds, freeing puppy-mill dogs from chicken wire cagesspaces so small they can barely turn around. One day he's in a laboratory saving animals who have outlived their usefulness for medical testing, and the next, showing an animal shelter a better way to care for society's abandoned creatures. This gripping memoir takes readers on the road with Scotlund as he dangerously busts puppy mills and other places abusing animals, and gets them into the arms of loving, protective caregivers. It shares how Scotlund came to be the fearless leader he isrealizing in a twelve-step program as a youth that his life needed meaningand gives readers the support they need if they, too, are looking for their calling, or want to make a positive change in the world.

Experiential Learning In Philosophy

In this volume, Julinna Oxley and Ramona Ilea bring together essays that examine and defend the use of experiential learning activities to teach philosophical terms, concepts, arguments, and practices. Experiential learning emphasizes the importance of student engagement outside the traditional classroom structure. Service learning, studying abroad, engaging in large-scale collaborative projects such as creating blogs, websites and videos, and practically applying knowledge in a reflective, creative and rigorous way are all forms of experiential learning. Taken together, the contributions to Experiential Learning in Philosophy argue that teaching philosophy is about doing philosophy with others. The book is divided into two sections: essays that engage in the philosophical debate about defining and implementing experiential learning, and essays that describe how to integrate experiential learning into the teaching of philosophy. Experiential Learning in Philosophy provides a timely reflection on best practices for teaching philosophical ideals and theories, an examination of the evolution of the discipline of philosophy and its adoption (or reclamation) of active modes of learning, and an anticipation of the ways in which pedagogical practices will continue to evolve in the 21st century.

After adopting an Irish sight hound, Laura Schenone discovers a remarkable and little-known fight to gain justice for dogs and for all animals. Greyhounds, bred to be the fastest racing dogs on earth, are streaks of lightning. Beautiful, astonishing creatures, countless numbers of them disappear each year once they can no longer compete and win. The Dogs of Avalon introduces us to the strong-willed Marion Fitzgibbon, born in rural Ireland, where animals are valued only for their utility. But Fitzgibbon believes that suffering is felt by all creatures, and she champions the cause of strays, baffling those around her—including her family—as she and a group of local women rescue any animal in need and taking on increasingly risky missions. When Fitzgibbon becomes head of the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals and focuses on the cause of the greyhound, she faces an entrenched racing industry protected by money and power. She joins forces with an American greyhound activist, a foxhunter’s wife, a British lady, and an influential German animal rescuer to create an international network to find these animals homes, confront the racing industry, and provide safe havens where animals can live in peace. The Dogs of Avalon brings forward the people on the other side of the tracks—Irish Travellers (a people whose Celtic history goes back centuries), dogmen who hope to win big—together with a host of animals on two continents—circus tigers in Ireland, wild monkeys in the Yucatan, dolphins in a marine animal park in Florida, and one very special Irish sight hound in New Jersey named Lily. In this potent David and Goliath story, Schenone’s journey helps us understand our deep connection to animals and gives us inspiration in the form of the unforgettable Fitzgibbon, who grapples with compassion and activism and shows the difference we are all capable of making in the world.

Nonhuman animals have many of the same feelings we do. They get hurt, they suffer, they are happy, and they take care of each other. Marc Bekoff, a renowned biologist specializing in animal minds and emotions, guides readers from high school age up—including older adults who want a basic introduction to the topic—in looking at scientific research, philosophical ideas, and humane values that argue for the ethical and compassionate treatment of animals. Citing the latest scientific studies and tackling controversies with conviction, he zeroes in on the important questions, inviting reader participation with "thought experiments" and ideas for action. Among the questions considered: • Are some species more valuable or more important than others? • Do some animals feel pain and suffering and not others? • Do animals feel emotions? • Should endangered animals be reintroduced to places where they originally lived? • Should animals be kept in captivity? • Are there alternatives to using animals for food, clothing, cosmetic testing, and dissection in the science classroom? • What can we learn by imagining what it feels like to be a dog or a cat or a mouse or an ant? • What can we do to make a difference in animals’ quality of life? Bekoff urges us not only to understand and protect animals—especially those whose help we want for our research and other human needs—but to love and respect them as our fellow beings on this planet that we all want to share in peace.
