These stories come from all over Australia, and show that people are reaping the benefits of giving unwanted creatures a fresh start and a great deal of love.

This inspiring collection features nearly 100 stories about every rescue animal imaginable, from cats, dogs and horses to chooks, wombats and penguins. These tales of heroics, survival and companionship are about creatures with injuries, animals from troubled backgrounds and some cheeky orphans who work their way into the hearts of their new families.

There's Raphey the cluey cat who prevents a house robbery; the unlikely friendship of Sophie the goat and Mr Wigglesworth the pig; a generous kookaburra family who adopt a baby bird in need; and a woman on the eve of her wedding who must decide if she can rescue Bluey the dog from being put down by taking him on her honeymoon.

These stories come from all over Australia, and show that people are reaping the benefits of giving unwanted and lost creatures a fresh start and a great deal of love.
