A collection of unique and heart-warming stories from the life of an RSPCA rescue worker. Jane Summers shows us the full and wondrous lives of those animals neglected and forgotten by writing about her and her husband's eventful experiences as RSPCA rescue workers.

Jane manages to capture the difficult emotions that every animal lover must go through when faced with an unwanted creature. From pity and sadness, to love and joy, she shows us the colorful lives of those pets that are often forgotten or abandoned. A story of family and how animals can effect people's lives in the most wonderful ways, Hoping for a Home is an inspiring collection for animal lovers and owners.

About the Author:

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.
