Janie Ritson worked for the RSPCA for 22 years, first as a volunteer and ultimately as a manager, before retiring. During that time she met her husband Tony, an RSPCA Inspector, when she was volunteering at a local animal centre. They have shared their home with a rainbow of creatures ranging from macaws to pet sheep. Janie spends her time caring for her animals as well as for her husband, four daughters and nine grandchildren.
Don’t read this without a ready supply of tissues to hand – you might well need them, some of Janie Ritson’s stories of abandoned and ill-treated animals are quite tragic. But, there is joy as well, new owners, new homes and healing balance the sadness. Life at an animal sanctuary is not for wimps, it’s a full on 24/7 life and through this account you get a real sense of what it must be like, emotionally and physically to run such a place. An engaging and absorbing tale of animals in need.Like for Like Reading:An Otter on the Aga: And Other True Tales from an Animal Sanctuary, Rex HarperRescue Me: My Life with the Battersea Dogs, Melissa Wareham This author was discovered by publisher, Harper Collins through - www.authonomy.com - the online community of discovery where writers can become authors and help great books get published.
