About the author
Allison Lange is a mom, small business owner and animal rescuer. She grew up in a small town in Indiana where her family instilled in her a respect for all animals and the environment. Since she was a kid, Allison knew she wanted to work with animals in some way but wasn't sure how. Then, shortly after moving to Los Angeles, she started volunteering with a local animal rescue and found a path where not only could she work with animals, but also help them. Allison now has over 17 years of experience running an animal rescue organization and rehabilitating dogs, cats, bunnies and more. She has worked tirelessly over the years with her rescue partner to save animals, while also educating adults and children about proper pet care, animal behavior, training and rescue.
Allison is a mother of a two year old daughter, Maya, who is already an animal lover herself. Their household has included rescued bunnies, cats and dogs, while Allison's sister has rescued horses, donkeys and goats. Allison became inspired to write this book after watching the sweet bond form between her daughter and their newly adopted dog Nala and how, with a little guidance, Maya was able to give Nala time to settle into her new home.
