Bette Anunson Anderson is a former business school instructor, corporate buyer for a department store chain, and real estate chain who married her high school sweetheart. She has been a tireless animal welfare advocate in her native Wisconsin for over sixty years, has published her latest book “Home at Last: True Lost Dog Stories”: a must-read for dog lovers of all ages.

The author shares, “The Lost Dog Project received a number of significant awards, but those could not compare to the heartfelt thanks of the dog and cat owners. Those thanks wouldn’t have been possible without the people involved in the project—the shelter staff who called us with the lost reports, the volunteers who acted as intermediaries with the desperate owners to absorb their heart-wrenching phone calls. There were many other individuals who provided critical information and help—the holding facilities, the county highway workers, farmers, hunters, mail carriers, and bus drivers. I was especially grateful to the volunteers who helped make and put up the lost-pet signs, spent endless hours searching in the snow, the cold, the heat, and the rain for the lost pets, and never complained about being late for family get-togethers, social events, and appointments.

We were an incredibly successful team—one that lived by the saying, ‘It’s only with the heart one can see rightly, what’s essential is invisible to the eye.’”

Published by Page Publishing, Bette Anunson Anderson’s engrossing book is an inspiring collection of ten true lost-dog rescues as well as invaluable insight for pet owners faced with the heartbreaking prospect of the loss of a beloved companion.

“We are, indeed, lucky to inhabit the world with Bette and her team. Her impact is inspiring, and her resolve even more so because, like so many true heroes, again and again, she willingly stepped outside of her life and into the lives of others when it was needed the most; and while she makes it sound easy, make no mistake, to feel, give, and love as fully as Bette has involves extreme sacrifice. Thank you, Bette.”

“The stories Bette Anderson shares in “Home at Last– True Lost Dog Stories” are heart-warming and inspiring. Bette and her team combined remarkable instincts, sleuthing skills, tenacity, and compassion to make many families whole again. While others may have written off these pleas for help saying, ‘It’s just a dog,’ Bette knew these were lost family members and took up each challenge as a personal crusade. Others would have been defeated by extreme weather conditions and downright bad odds but not this team! There are angels among us, and Bette and her team are chief amongst them. Having been in animal welfare work, I’ve seen and lived stories that could harden the softest of souls. Even so, Bette’s book elicited more tears than this old dog should have left to shed. I know –Home At Last–True Lost Dog Stories will inspire others to get more involved in helping their neighbors—two and four-legged alike.”

“I found myself pulled into the reality of each dog’s story in such a way that it seemed I was right there with the people who made a difference. Feeling the angst of each situation, followed by an uplifting resolution was heartwarming. Indeed, there are real guardian angels amongst us, helping lost pets. It is rare to discover individuals as dedicated as those portrayed in this book.”
