About the Author
Catskill Animal Sanctuary opened in January of 2001, the culmination of many months' research, travel, and internships at successful farm sanctuaries by founders Kathy Stevens and Jesse Moore. The Sanctuary is a 148-acre refuge for eleven species of farmed animals rescued from cruelty, neglect, and abandonment. Catskill Animal Sanctuary rescues farmed animals, ignites social change to end their exploitation, and champions vegan living. Today, it is one of the world's best known and most beloved sanctuaries, having saved over 4,000 farm animals through direct rescue, and exponentially more through groundbreaking programming that encourages humans to adopt veganism. It is located in Saugerties, New York.

Kathy Stevens in 2001, co-founded Catskill Animal Sanctuary, where her love of teaching, her belief that education has the power to transform, and her love of animals come together. Kathy is the author of Where the Blind Horse Sings and Animal Camp, two critically and popularly-acclaimed books about the work of Catskill, and a frequent contributor to books, podcasts, and articles on animal sentience, animal rights, and veganism. She takes her message of kindness to all beings and the urgent imperative of veganism to conferences and colleges in the US and Canada. Kathy lives on the grounds of Catskill in Saugerties, New York, with her dogs Chumbley and Scout, and kisses many critters every day.

Linda Soper-Kolton graduated from the Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, with a certification from the Institute for Integrative Nutrition as a holistic health coach. In 2012, she came to Catskill Animal Sanctuary as a guest chef, teaching Compassionate Cuisine cooking classes and leading and growing the culinary program, inspiring and educating with love, patience, and delicious food. Seven years later, she continues to strategize, teach, blog, and kiss pigs. She owns her own vegan café in Fairfield, Connecticut.

Sara Boan has been a vegan chef and culinary instructor at Catskill Animal Sanctuary since 2016. Sara holds degrees and certificates from Ohio University, The Natural Gourmet Institute for Health and Culinary Arts, and the Academy of Culinary Nutrition. Sharing her passion for delicious plant-based foods and living a compassionate vegan lifestyle are the great joys in her life. When she's not cooking, you can find her knitting and spinning with vegan fibers, snuggling with her cats, and spending time with her partner. Sara lives in Peekskill, New York.
