A new book written by a retired Royal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (RSPCA) inspector tells the stories of animal rescue
that made his work memorable, according to a new report from the Lancashire Telegraph.
Steve Greenhalgh dedicated 28 years to the RSPCA, during which time his adventures included paddling in a one-oar boat in order to rescue a cat, as well as the time that a seal pup ended up in the Greenhalghs' family bath tub.
The latter story inspired the title of the book, which Greenhalgh says he worked on after he retired from the RSPCA.
A Seal Pup In My Bath is dedicated to the author's wife and deceased daughter, Emma Kate Greenhalgh-Yates. It is published by Constable Books and will be available in late May.
In the U.S., there are more than 77 million dogs and 93 million household cats. Animal rescue shelters continue to house many dogs and cats who do not have homes. One should consider adopting from an animal shelter when making the decision to welcome a new pet into the family, in order to save precious lives.
