Our Executive Director, Glenys, grew up on a farm ... and has a soft spot for lambs. (Well, every animal actually!)
Our Campaign Director Lyn's heart was touched by this beautiful wolf in Jordan — who had found safety and compassion at an animal sanctuary.
Jesse felt lucky when he had the chance to enjoy some winter sunshine with rescued bears in a Romanian sanctuary.
Isobel found a friendly goat pal while volunteering at Edgar's Mission farm sanctuary.
Lisa's life changed forever — and for the better! — when she adopted Nellie, a rescued puppy factory breeding dog.
Allison started off foster caring for mother cat Buffy and her daughter Halo — who had been rescued from an abandoned house — but understandably couldn't resist their charms! They are a happy forever family these days ...
Kim and rescued greyhound Blue are another sweet 'foster fail' story! Kim cared for Blue after a broken leg made him 'surplus to requirements' for the racing industry — and ended up adopting him!
Rebecca fell in love with baby elephant Jungle Boy when she volunteered at Elephant Nature Park (ENP) while travelling in Thailand. ENP is run by a hard working team helping to give rescued elephants a second chance at life.
Lucy cared for orphaned baby ringtail possum Percy — his mother was likely killed by a car — until he was big and strong enough to be released into the wild.
Our Youth Campaigner Amy met this mischievous rescued capuchin monkey ... also called Amy! ... when volunteering at a sanctuary in England. Now that (human) Amy is back in Australia, she sponsors (monkey) Amy and the rescue group.
