    1. Not Left Behind presents a heart-wrenching photographic essay that tells the story of a group of people that went in after Hurricane Katrina to rescue hundreds of pets left behind during the evacuation. While the text is relatively minimal, the photographs taken by Troy Snow speak for themselves, depicting page after page of baleful eyes staring out from emaciated bodies huddled in abandoned boats or on the roofs of cars. I admit, I got teary-eyed a few times; while reading it I felt like I coul [...]

    2. Perhaps the cover of this book says it all: we must help dogs and cats whenever we can. I've owned "Not Left Behind: Rescuing the Pets of New Orlean" for a while, something that's afforded me a number of chances to look at the exquisite pictures inside. However, I don't think I'd read the text until today. And tears were stinging the back of my eyes as I read, because I was reminded of how extraordinary people can be.

    3. This is an excellent photojournalism documentation of one small corner of the Hurricane Katrina crisis--the pet rescue effort by Best Friends Animal Society. Through the stories and images of individual animals, readers will hopefully come away with a stark reminder of why pets must never be left behind during an evacuation. It's also a testament to the necessity of overhauling the country's natural disaster procedures.

    4. Sad -- happy. Many kudos to those who valiantly saved so many pets. And some actually were returned to their owners! You won't soon forget the pictures of the dogs with the haunting looks in their eyes -- and the glorious faces of those rescued.

    5. My son gave me this book about the pets of Katrina. What a heart-warming story of dedicated people who at significant personal sacrifice went about saving the animals left behind. You may shed a tear or two.

    6. Excellent book capturing the efforts of the Best Friends Animal Society crew to rescue and save animals left behind following Hurricane Katrina. Shame on you New Orleans and Rescue officials for not allowing evacuees to take their pets with them. Despicable.

    7. Photos and text documenting the search for and rescue of pets in the wake of Katrina. I picked this up because our dog came to us via a pregnant rescued dog. The photos were lovely, the text heart-wrenching, and the volunteers' devotion simply mind-boggling.

    8. before and after pics of pets rescued after Katrina were shocking and at the same time showed the undying "companion" spirit of dogs.

    9. Awe-inspiring stories of rescue coupled with amazing photos People were not the only victims of Hurricane Katrina.
