Nancy Martin stories are always EXCELLENT!!
I HIGHLY RECOMMEND THIS BOOK AND THIS AUTHOR.
Animal rescuers, some are sensible folk! Many are not sensible. There is a local cat rescue here(USA), that brings in some cats from Mediterranean countries, from they're unwanted animal shelters. A funny thing, part of the rescue' s and is 'purebred cats', but a LOT of the cats shown are mixed breeds. It's bringing in cats from other countries that has me ticked. Like we here in the USA don't already have a HUGE supply of unwanted cats. Go online to performer (dot) com, and look up cats within a 100 or 500 mile radius of your zip code. With NO further specifications, like female, or breed. U will be shocked by how many unwanted cats available, now try for how many in all of the US.
Then there's the rescue people who go to breeder auctions, and BUY as many as they can and turn around and charge people $200 & up for the SAME ill bred animals they tell us not to buy from backyard breeders/puppy mills. They're still the same badly bred animals, with all the unknown/untested defects/illnesses.
Or how about the rescuers who gathered a large bunch of Chihuahua's from some Southwestern state where there's always an over abundance of them, then flew them to some North Eastern states, where there are fewer Chihuahuas. Again these are pretty much all from puppy mills. Unknown health hazards.
