┤For every dog or cat saved from an unhappy situation or uncertain future, there is a human story too. The stories in this book show how rewarding pet ownership can be.┤ - Paul O┤Grady

Battersea Dogs and Cats Home is the oldest and most-loved animal home in the country, caring for thousands of lost, abandoned or unwanted cats and dogs every year. But while they play a vital role in saving animals, quite often these animals go on to save their new owners in surprising ways.

In this book, you┤ll meet:

˙ Bibi the Staffie, who helped her owner make a remarkable recovery after a stroke
˙ Kobi the Husky, who had never seen sunlight until he was rescued
˙ Minty the three-legged cat, who formed a special bond with a baby
˙ Marjorie the Bulldog, who went from being abandoned on the streets to meeting the Queen!

Featuring moving but uplifting real life stories about the animals that have passed through Battersea┤s doors, A Friend for Life will strike a chord with anyone whose life has been blessed by animals.

Royalties from the sale of this book go towards supporting the work of Battersea Dogs and Cats Home (registered charity no. 206394).
True stories of love and rescue from Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, where it is the pets, rather than the owners, who save and change lives . . . from the publisher┤s description
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home
Battersea Dogs & Cats Home is the UK┤s oldest and most famous home for dogs and cats. The Home aims never to turn away a dog or cat in need of help, reuniting lost dogs and cats with their owners or caring for them until new homes can be found. Battersea also works to educate the public about responsible pet ownership. Every year the Home cares for over 9,000 lost, abandoned and neglected dogs and cats, and in 2010 the home marked its 150th anniversary.
