About the Book

Wayne Pacelle, the powerful and influential President & CEO of the Humane Society, brings his relentless dedication and enthusiasm to students with The Bond. Pacelle describes the history of our relationship with animals, what’s gone wrong with that relationship, and how we can fix it.

Liberally sprinkled with stories from Wayne’s time in the field- shadowing seal clubbers in Canada, raiding puppy mills in the heartland, rescuing strays from the floodwaters of Katrina, and facing Michael Vick in his prison jumpsuit- The Bond will explore all the ways we can repair our bond with the animal kingdom as well as one man’s extraordinary contribution to that effort.

“For everyone who cares about animals, The Bond is not to be missed. Wayne Pacelle, who has done so much to make animal welfare a major cause in America today, gives us his perspective on everything from animal intelligence to zoos, and from factory farming to his role in the rehabilitation of Michael Vick. Heart-warming, informative, thrilling, inspiring, disturbing: The Bond covers the full range of our interactions with animals.”-Peter Singer, author of Animal Liberation and Ira W. DeCamp Professor of Bioethics at Princeton University

Critical Praise

“If the animals knew about this book, they would, without doubt, confer on Wayne Pacelle, their highest honor.” - JANE GOODALL

The Bond is the best overall book on animals I have ever read. Brilliant and moving, it will change the way we see the world and the way we see ourselves.” - JOHN MACKEY, CEO and Co-founder of Whole Foods Market

Majestic in sweep and beautifully written, The Bond is a monumental achievement. I can’t think of any other book that is so valuable. It is truly wonderful!” - JEFFREY MASSON, New York Times bestselling author of When Elephants Weep
