Raccoon Gangs, Pigeons Gone Bad, and Other Animal Adventures: A Wildlife Rehabber’s Tale of Birds and Beasts
“What are you going to do with all these babies now?”
Trish Ann Konieczny didn’t always dream of being a wildlife rehabilitator, but that changed as soon as four orphaned raccoons fell out of a tree, into her yard and into her heart. Since the Raccoon Gang first dropped in, her life has been energized by a passion to share God’s love for all creatures by rescuing birds and beasts alike.
Now Trish shares her most unique encounters with her needy new friends and how they’ve each provided a window into the animal kingdom God has created for us to care for and enjoy. You’ll find enchanting stories from her time at Lion’s Den Rehab, like those of…
- Spark: an abandoned baby squirrel nursed back to health and eventual freedom.
- George: a homely, headstrong pigeon who loved rehab so much he wouldn’t leave.
- Bunny: an adorable but high-risk rescue rabbit determined to survive and thrive.
Filled with heartwarming antics and up close looks at life in animal rescue, this book will delight every lover of furry and feathered babies—and reveal incredible insights into our relationship with God’s magnificent creation.
