Behind the Scenes with Your Favorite Animal Actors
Written by American Humane Association President and CEO Robin Ganzert, PhD in conjunction with Allen and Linda Anderson, founders of the Angel Animals Network.
“Their voices can be heard as raucous barks, friendly nickers, soothing purrs, and cheerful chirps, although humans must speak up for them. Their soulful eyes reflect whatever purity and innocence dwell in the interior life of our species. The world is a better place because they appeal to and draw out our highest natures, our best selves.
They are animal stars.”
Since the early days of film and movie-making, animal stars have charmed and entertained us. But what are these animal icons’s lives and personalities like off-screen? For the first time ever, the new book Animal Stars allows readers behind the scenes with a wide variety of animals actors, their trainers, and the American Humane Association’s professional staff monitoring their safety. In a way that has never been so authentically explored, it reveals the fascinating world of entertainment where our favorite animal actors – and their famous human co-stars – together, bring stories to life on the silver screen. For all animal lovers and movie goers, Animal Stars offers heroic, entertaining, often humorous, and truly inspiring tales of movie magic.
