Since setting up his first animal sanctuary in the Cornish countryside in the late 1950s, Rex has rescued and rehabilitated more than 50,000 creatures from badgers to buzzards, parrots to peacocks, rabbits to raccoons. Rex tells the amazing, and often moving, story of how he and his wife Julie built their unique haven, a place where abused, abandoned and injured creatures were given a second chance. He describes his work with the RSPCA, and how the charity designated his farm their first official animal rescue centre in Cornwall. A book to warm the hearts of animal lovers everywhere.

A fantastic book which I was unable to put down. After finishing this book I instantly bought the next one online - An eagle in the airing cupboard. Can't wait!
The book portrays all aspects of Rex
's career and family life, including his extended animal family, in a realistic way which demonstrates a Cornish lifestyle and his endless deadication to all animals. Read this book you will not be disappointed.
