Allen and Linda Giving a Presentation at the Minneapolis Convention Center




Allen and Linda Anderson are pet-expert speakers, authors, and founders of the Angel Animals Network. They help people discover and benefit from the miraculous powers of animals. Dedicated to promoting human-animal companionship, Allen and Linda donate a portion of proceeds from their work to animal rescue organizations and do fundraising activities.

The Andersons believe that whenever you connect spiritually with animals, thousands of new doors open. Through their books, newsletters,  presentations, insights, and this website they will show you portals into a whole new world where animals are your guides, healers, and friends.

With pets in 63% of American homes (71 million households) in 2007, it's astonishing to consider the consequences of ignoring animals as wisdom partners and the benefits of tapping into their hidden talents.

The National Examiner, April 26, 2004

"RESCUED: Saving Animals from Disaster was very well received by the students and my faculty colleagues.  It provided a very helpful framework for our [Animals in Disaster, Spring 2007, Arkansas Tech University] course study."
--Kay C. Goss, CEM, Director of Emergency Management and Crisis Communications, Homeland Security

"Their gentler approach of simply sharing stories of how animals teach their human owners the qualities of unconditional love, gratitude, joy, courage, and patience has hit a nerve with pet owners all over the country and beyond."
--Laurence M. Cruz,
The Associated Press, November 20, 1998

--S. D. Hubbard,
The National ENQUIRER, May 31, 2004


"Certainly, scientific studies show that people with pets do live longer than those with no animals in the house, so maybe the Andersons are right and there is more to the idea of healing animals than good old wishful thinking."
--Lucy Broadbent,
The Sunday Times, London, England, August 2, 1998
