This moving animal rescue book is a must for all animal lovers. Poppy is Fiji’s most famous dog and her amazing journey has helped to highlight the desperate plight of animals in Fiji. Poppy arrived at the Animals Fiji Clinic with a brutal facial injury in March 2012. It appeared she had been struck by a cane knife, amputating 50% of her muzzle. With a dreadful open wound, she had been left to fend for herself, and by the time she reached the Animals Fiji Clinic she weighed half of her normal body weight. Had a Good Samaritan not found Poppy and handed her in, she would have died of starvation or as a result of her wounds. Due to lack of funding, the Animals Fiji Clinic did not have a vet on staff. However, thanks to a fantastically successful fundraising appeal, Poppy was airlifted to Australia in October 2012 for reconstructive surgery. Her journey was documented by the Australian television show, Bondi Vet. Poppy’s story is one in a million. Sadly, so many of the animals she left behind in Fiji suffer and die every day without treatment for illness and injury. Poppy’s book, The Poppy Project, is intended to raise awareness worldwide for the plight of animals in Fiji.

This moving animal rescue book is a must for all animal lovers. When award-winning children’s author Fiona Ingram (South Africa) read about an abused and abandoned dog called Champ that was left for dead, she was appalled and moved. Appalled that such neglect and abuse could even happen in the first place, and moved by a little dog’s immense courage, fortitude, and most importantly his will to live, and his ability to forgive and love humans again. Champ’s motto is: “Never give up!” Champ did not give up and he lived to become a healthy, happy, lovable little dog, bringing joy and hope into people’s lives. Surviving against terrible odds, Champ has become an inspiration to many people, proving that the impossible can be achieved, and there is always a light at the end of every dark tunnel.
Fiona Ingram was inspired to document his story for several reasons. The first is to help raise funds for S.A.F.E. Rescue, the non-profit rescue site (in California) that took Champ in. The second is to raise awareness about animal abuse, and offer advice on the many ways people can help. This is a must for readers who enjoy heart-warming animal stories and want to do more for animals. Included are easy tips on how to make a difference, a wonderful “Pome” written by Champ about his happy ever after life, and a short story fiction for younger readers. Champ makes public appearances as the spokesdog for S.A.F.E. Rescue and inspires even more people he meets in person.
