Cleveland Amory, the author of The Cat Who Came for Christmas, writes of his experiences in founding his own animal sanctuary. His Texas-based Black Beauty Ranch now houses a quirky collection of needy animals--chimpanzees, barnyard animals, injured local wildlife, elephants, and homeless dogs and cats. The story is both sweet and inspiring.
