You can read about the difference PetRetreat has made to people's and animals' lives in our PetRetreat booklet - The story so far (PDF 454KB).
Here are just some of their stories.
All names have been changed.

Flo came into PetRetreat's care when the violence at home escalated and Eliza fled to a woman's refuge with her daughter Daisy.
Maggie and Oliver
Maggie would only leave her violent circumstances and go into refuge on the grounds that she knew her cat Oliver would be safe.
