Tamsyn King has been fostering animals through PetRetreat for four years.
As a former victim of domestic abuse herself, she wanted to do something to help others in that situation.
Supporting people and helping pets
"PetRetreat brought back memories of my own situation when I was living through domestic abuse.
"I endured longer than I would have done because of my pets.
"I simply couldn't leave them behind with a violent man.
"Being a fosterer is my way of supporting people going through the same trauma.
"But also helping the pets who have to suffer in silence."
