Charming, warm and touching memoir from inspirational animal whisperer Carolyn Press-McKenzie, who runs two animal sanctuaries.
Heart-warming and funny, Animal Magic tells the moving and inspirational story of one woman's work with animals. Carolyn's organisation HUHA (Helping You Help Animals) is a thriving network that rehabilitates and rehomes domestic and farm animals and wildlife all over the country. It is New Zealand's leading no-kill shelter.
Carolyn's years of working with animals have given her many great stories to tell. From her first eclectic menagerie of a pig, chooks, cats, a movie-star dog, nine actor rats and Felix the magpie to Laurie, Charlie and Rachel the sad monkeys that were rescued from a circus, Carolyn's passion is to find positive outcomes for every animal and bird.
Her special ability to connect meaningfully with every animal she deals with and her understanding of what makes each one tick, along with her warmth and friendship towards them, is nothing short of extraordinary.
With its gentle sense of humour and perfectly pitched comic timing, Animal Magic is a charming tale of one woman's drive to follow her passion. This book will change the way you think about animals forever.
Carolyn Press-McKenzie is well known as the founder of HUHA, Helping You Help Animals Charitable Trust. Carolyn's inspired problem-solving and drive has led a team of HUHA volunteers to save thousands of animals from death row and to find safe outcomes for hundreds of animals after the Christchurch earthquakes, thirty beagles from a medical testing facility, thousands of hens from battery farms as well as ex-circus and zoo animals and native wildlife. HUHA volunteers also organised New Zealand's largest animal welfare protest against party-pill testing on animals, after which the law was changed.
Carolyn currently heads HUHA's two no-kill animal sanctuaries just north of Wellington, as well as running a business that formulates natural products. She was a vet nurse, trained animals for film and television, studied herbalism, appeared as the animal adviser on TV One's Good Morning, has won two New Zealander of the Year Local Hero Awards and is highly regarded by the animal lover community.
