This is the inspirational story of photographer Jo-Anne, who travels the world to find women rescuing animals. What a beautiful project she has undertaken, shining a light on some of the most altruistic, hard-working women working on the front line of animal rescue. I love her!

It was an honour to write about Jo – you can see more of her work by following Unbound.

I absolutely loved working with Kristina on this feature. She had an idea to create an advent calendar with a charity twist – behind every door is a 50p contribution to a charity. The premise supports 24 incredible charities, all carefully selected by Kristina and covering good causes in various areas, from children in need to animals in need and everything in between. It is such a lovely idea and this year, she’s already reached £150k raised.

What an achievement – the calendars are stocked on Advent Of Change and also in John Lewis and Waitrose. So much better than chocolate!

I am in awe of the commitment and sacrifice Mary and Steve have made in the name of the dogs they love so much. They’ve spent 300k of their own savings setting up and running Street Dog Watch Association, taken nearly 100 dogs into their own home and saved, nursed and rehabilitated countless more. Plus, they’re working hard to reduce the street dog population in Kerala, India, in a compassionate and sensible way.

As an animal lover myself, I absolutely love writing about people like Mary. She’s run out of her own money now and desperately needs support, so if you love dogs and would like to help Mary’s mission, visit her website here or on Facebook here

The story was out in last weekend’s Love Sunday – you can read it online here.

I have such a soft spot for writing about animals and the amazing humans who dedicate their lives to helping them – here we have Michelle, founder of DOTS – Dogs on the Streets – a charity set up to assist the homeless population in the care of their dogs. Michelle taught me so much I didn’t know about the homeless sector and it was so inspiring to listen to her and learn about her efforts to support homeless people and their dogs.

I have such a soft spot for writing about animals and in yesterday’s Love Sunday, I was able to celebrate a gorgeous, patient and wise dog called Suzie, who along with her human companion Kelly, fosters kittens in New York. Kelly has been fostering kittens for a few years and at first thought she’d have to keep the kittens away from Suzie. But Suzie proved to be an asset to the fostering process, showing the kittens that she could be their climbing frame, their protector, their hug blanket!

The story behind the fostering makes for difficult reading – kittens and cats are dumped and neglected all over the city and Kelly works tirelessly to raise awareness of this, while looking after as many kittens as she can. The story of Suzie the kitten whisperer will melt your heart! You can read the online version here and follow Kelly and chums on Instagram here.
