I Once Was Lost is the story of the largest rescue of dogs to succeed without support of local authorities. The rescue took over a year and featured protests, assault, and lawsuits, before over one hundred dogs and one snake were saved from abuse and neglect. Also included: information on how to evaluate a rescue, how to identify a hoarder, difficulties with the enforcement of laws pertaining to animal care, and suggestions for how to put puppy mills, failed rescues, and fake rescues out of business.
From Matt McAvoy of Kindle Book Review:
“Laura’s writing is quite lovely – heartfelt and sincere, with a stern presentation of the facts. The book is incredibly well-researched and intelligently considered, and the cruel treatment is contextualized not by anger, but by balanced collation of events, studies and dog behavioral training practices. This is an important book which needed to be written by a disciplined professional and an animal lover, both of which clearly apply to Laura. She is a very articulate and hard-working author.”
