Anderson have a special gift of communication whether it’s with the numerous
audiences they address each year or the animals they nurture and rescue. Their
compassion and assistance for the rescued and the needy as well as the healthy
and well-cared for is an inspiring model. Their messages of healing and hope
shine through everything they do and have left a lasting impression on me. I
recommend them, without hesitation, as knowledgeable and inspirational public
speakers and writers."

"Linda and Allen Anderson, individually or as a team, are excellent presenters in a
group setting. After they appeared on my radio program, "Healing with Your
Pet," several times, I asked them to appear personally before my local
group, The Minneapolis Theosophical Society. They drew a good crowd of
enthusiastic people who were mesmerized by their presentation. They both speak
from the heart and really connect with a group. They are excellent public

creating a big shift for the listener about the true purpose of animals in our
lives. Totally engaging and life affirming."
--Barbara Buckner, new media producer and project manager for Fortune 1000 companies
Anderson’s interview on UnityFM radio made my day. Few people discuss topics
about animals with such an objective, enlightened, and caring attitude for both
humans and animals. Linda discusses sensitive topics in a matter-of-fact and
caring manner. This is important to those of us who already know that animals
are angels and work miracles in our lives."
--Kathy DeSantis, book reviewer, Orange County, California

Linda Anderson are uplifting speakers who help us understand the greater
significance of animals in human lives. They are plainspoken Midwesterners who share their insights and wisdom
in universal ways. Utilizing stories
they have collected from around the world, the Andersons present lessons they
have learned, enabling others to approach their important relationship with
animals in new ways. They tie big ideas
to the ground in ways that ordinary people understand them. "

--Sherri Cosentino, Marketing and Events, Minnesota Valley Humane Society
"Even though I’m not a pet lover, have never had a pet of my own,
after listening to Allen Anderson speak I realized what a phenomenal impact
these little creatures have on their owners. I enjoyed Allen’s speech
very much, and it inspired me to be more understanding when I see people
interact with their pets and why people see their pets as part of their family.
Allen’s insight of this subject is outstanding, and I would recommend him
for any event.”
--Anna Dee Olson, The Amish Lady, author of Growing Up Amish, www.GrowingUpAmish.com

the Veterinary Technician Appreciation Day in Rochester at the Minnesota School
of Business. We had great
feedback and everyone had a wonderful time."
--Julie Legred, NAVTA (National Association of Veterinary Technicians in America) 2008 president
and Linda Anderson write about and speak to the very heart of the divine gifts animals
are and bring into our lives. No
greater joys have I witnessed in nearly 30 years of nursing than the face of a
patient when hospital and nursing home volunteers brought in pets to visit the
patients. Allen and Linda bring the healing
power of animals through their storytelling with great wisdom, clarity, and love.
--Arlene Forbes, registered nurse, geriatrics

Anderson is a gifted and engaging speaker who captivates his audience with
stories gleaned from life's trenches, byways, and summits. The essence of
Allen's talks can be summed up in two words: life affirming. His easygoing
manner, gentle humor, wit and wisdom remind me of Will Rogers."

"Allen's ability to command attention while speaking is one of his strong
points. A pleasant manner, calming
appearance and his soft eye contact make the participants feel he is speaking
directly to them. His knowledge of angel animal experiences
and genuine love all of life, especially our animal family, puts him as one of the
top experts in this field in the country. If you are looking for someone who speaks from the heart with a wealth
of knowledge in the mind, Allen is that special individual."

Linda Anderson's generous and compassionate interaction with participants leads

Anderson provides a unique and refreshing perspective to pet owners everywhere
-- so often we think we're "rescuing" animals when we adopt them; in
fact, in the great mystery of things, they often end up rescuing us, indeed
seemingly knowing more about us than we do ourselves!"
--Stephen Banick, director, The Gulliver Project, Inc., Phoenix, Arizona

connection we have with our pets. He is a true
inspiration to the angels we have in our God-given creatures."
--Loree Taylor Jordan, author of Detox for Life and founder of Pet Friends and Rescue, California
delightful to have you at Menorah Plaza presenting motivational stories about
animals and their amazing powers. Your stories stimulated wonderful
conversations and memories. This is a wonderful project and a great service to
the community. My tenants are still talking about it. I highly recommend this
presentation for any senior facility or program. I feel it is appropriate for
any age audience."
--Helen Gurevich, director of programs, Menorah Plaza, Menorah West, Minneapolis
"I've had the
good fortune to see Allen speak to audiences ranging in size from a dozen to
thousands. The number is irrelevant, because he prepares with the same care no
matter how many are in attendance. And everyone feels as spellbound as with any
masterful storyteller. So many times I've shared tears of laughter and a
changed heart with those around me in the audience. Allen Anderson
