Pet Subjects Rescue
My Pet Subjects column in the Daily Telegraph highlights a different rescue pet every week – from mice to cats and dogs to horses, and many others too.
This section of my website displays photos and information about the weekly rescue pet and, where possible, updates to let you know the outcome.
You can browse all the rescues by category or use the search box to find a particular pet by name.
