Book Description

30 Jan 2014

In the heart-warming Lost and Found, discover tales from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home that celebrate the power of animals to transform people's lives.

We hear from the young boy whose Battersea dog helped him to deal with a serious autoimmune disease, and from a woman whose Staffie was the friend who got her through cancer.

We meet the couple who were brought together by a Battersea dog; the man who took on a three-legged kitten which changed his life; and the former Battersea hound who became a search and rescue dog.

Read these and many other powerful stories from Battersea Dogs & Cats Home. Lost and Found has something for dog and cat lovers alike, and is perfect reading for fans of A Streetcat Named Bob and Paul O'Grady's For The Love Of Dogs.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Tales of love and rescue 13 Feb 2014
Format:Paperback
As a lifelong animal lover I have thoroughly enjoyed this book. I 've been so engrossed in all the stories that I found it hard to put it down! The real-life tales of love and rescue are a much needed tonic. It's encouraging to know there are good people out there who are prepared to go that extra mile for a four-legged friend. A wonderfully hart-warming read.

Absolutely love the stories in the book!! Much recommended for anyone who loves BDCH as much as me! I hope to be able to re-home one of their poor dogs or cats in the near future!

You'd have to have a heart of stone not to shed a tear at every story .

By Ellie
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I chose 5 star because I've always loved dogs and cats so this book was good for me helping me understand how animals all shaped and sizes can bring people together and help those through difficult times. Some of the stories can be a bit emotional like a staffer called Guinness helped gill get threw cancer but apart from that I think it was amazing!

I liked the different approaches as new pet owners describe their experiences. But the last story though was more like a Mills and Boon I thought.
