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.
Dr. Robin Ganzert spent her early years captivated by the animals featured in Disney movies, falling in love with horses, dogs, cats and all wildlife. Her passion and advocacy for the power of the human-animal bond led her to her dream job of serving as the President and CEO of American Humane Association, the first national humane organization founded in 1877 for the protection of children and animals.
