Benji - The Ultimate Love
I was 12 when Benji came to live with us. He was tiny, only 10 weeks old and I could hold him with one hand. I loved him from the moment I saw him but he only ever had eyes for my mum.Emilie Turner
Saffron the Wonder Dog
We got Saffron when I was very young. I’m not sure exactly how old, but I know that there was a conversation around either getting a dog or a rabbit. Saffron was much better than any rabbit ever could have been. She was the fluffiest golden retriever I have ever known, with pale yellow fur that never darkened to the rich gold I’ve seen in other retrievers since.Claire Stephen-Walker
A dog almost named Cookie
My family is one of thousands that rescues stray animals. There was never a time we didn't have at least one former-stray companion living with us. Right now, we have two cats: one named Mimzy and the other Minnie, and two dogs, a German Shepherd named Remo and a mix named Heidi.Chezney Martin

Lost, Found and a Forever Home
Lost I’m not sure how I got here, but I’ve been on my own for several days. Everything is new and scary. Sometimes I’m able to slow down and I think I’ve found a safe spot to hide and rest, but someone yells, “Get out of here,” and I run. Sometimes they will throw rocks or sticks at me and I don’t think they mean to play fetch—my favorite game.Stephen Legler
