Brutus, a Rottweiler who had suffered a lesion in his
vertebrae, was barely able to move when he was brought to
Angel's Gate hospice and rehabilitation center. Now, after
months of hydro- and physical therapy, he enjoys daily
walks. Thanks to Susan Marino, who runs the center in her
Long Island home, more than 150 animals, from dogs and cats
to horses and birds, are given the kind of hospice care
usually reserved for people. Some recover from their life-
threatening injuries or illnesses, while others are given
refuge through their final days.
Getting Lucky tells the story of Lucky-a dog who's sent to
Angel's Gate to die but instead finds a whole new way of
living-and 20 other animals at the hospice. But it's also
the story of a woman with a mission. Marino, a former
pediatric nurse, started Angel's Gate 12 years ago in the
belief that even critically ill and abandoned animals
deserved to die with dignity and respect, and her work has
made her a genuine hero. She speaks to veterinary groups
across the country about her groundbreaking approach to
animal care. This important book is a testament to the
difference one person can make.
