The Lady and Her Tiger

By Pat Derby

While working as an animal trainer in Hollywood more than 35 years ago, PAWS co-founder and director, Pat Derby, witnessed first-hand the neglect and abuse prevalent in the industry.

Pat specialized in non-abusive training using positive reinforcement, unlike most Hollywood trainers at the time who relied on dominance and physical force. Determined to initiate better standards of care and handling for performing animals, Pat chronicled her experiences in her first book, The Lady and Her Tiger. An exposè on the treatment of performing animals, it was chosen as a Book-of-the-Month-Club selection, won an American Library Association Award in 1976, and caused her career in Hollywood to come to a grinding halt.

She retired the animals she owned, bought a resort among the redwoods of northern California, and threw herself into full-time activism, education and fundraising. In 1984 she and partner Ed Stewart founded PAWS.
