Do you have a pet or are you considering getting one? A pet to greet you when you return home after a busy day at work... A pet to teach your child responsibility or provide companionship to an elderly parent... A pet to be one less animal in a shelter. What do you expect of this pet, who may weigh 30 grams (such as a parakeet) or 150 pounds (like a Newfoundland dog)? It seems today that more and more individuals and families are opening their homes to a pet or more than one pet in some cases than in the past. Many people have multiple pets and multiple species. Fish, ferrets, sugar-gliders, horses, llamas ... there are as many choices of a pet as there are personalities to want them. Reasons for purchasing or adopting a pet vary as much as human temperament and motivation. There are more opportunities for acquiring information on a given animal than in the past books, magazines, and the internet, as well as media such as Animal Planet. Still, there is a difference between acquiring a pet and opening one s heart to a pet. Open Your Heart with Pets will explore the difference.

Open Your Heart with Pets is an excellent book, every pet owner or guardian should read. In addition to providing useful hints about pet care it is full of many true stories about how pets help in our life. As an avian veterinarian, I have first hand knowledge of many such cases and can easily relate to the stories written in the book. Pet lovers will be delighted to find information in the book about all types of pets not easily available from other sources. --Dr. Ram Mohan, DVM, MS, Ph.D, Avian Health Clinich, Reynoldsburg, Ohio
I've always thought you can learn a lot from our animal friends -- Janice Phelps seems to agree! In her new book, Open Your Hearts with Pets, she describes what life should really be like with your 'pet.' If they are given the respect they deserve as living beings that share their world with us, then the person-pet experience should be good as gold! Pick up Open Your Hearts with Pets and discover a whole new relationship with your animal friend! --Jack Hanna, Director Emeritus, Columbus Zoo, Host, TV's "Jack Hanna's Into the Wild"
This is Janice Phelps' best work yet. Her ability to connect with the relationships between animals and humans is amazing. Janice speaks on a personal level between this animal-human bond. She delves into the role animals play in our daily lives, covering the evolution of pets in American culture to looking at life from our pet's point of view. This book is a must-read for those involved in animal welfare as well as those who don't know the joy and health benefits animals bring to our lives. --Janice Kobi, International/National humane advocate, Founder of Fairfield County C.A.R.E.S. (Citizens for Animal Rights & Ethical Standards), Abuse Prevention Fund Director (Retired)
