Saved from the Waves: Animal Rescues of the Rnli (Hardcover)
She has to be OK, I pleaded silently to myself. She has to be.
'We've alerted the RNLI and they're sending a lifeboat out.'
'The RNLI?' I said, surprised. 'They do that?'
Saved from the Waves is a heart-warming collection of first-hand accounts from RNLI volunteers of the myriad dangers they face during each mission to save beloved pets, wildlife and livestock.
This remarkable book shines a light on the bravery of the volunteers, and the necessity of these rescues - not only to save animals at risk of drowning, but to prevent people putting themselves in danger when trying to save a cherished furry friend.
Each mission requires courage, determination and an unrelenting commitment to helping those in danger. Each day brings a new challenge for the extraordinary volunteer crews who are the lifeblood of the RNLI.
About the Author
The RNLI is the charity that saves lives at sea, providing a lifeboat service, lifeguards and safety education.The charity's founder, Sir William Hillary, vowed that 'with courage, nothing is impossible.' His vision of forming a rescue service funded by voluntary donations became a reality in 1824 and, almost 200 years on, the charity has saved more than 142,500 lives. Everyone who gives their time or support to the RNLI is a lifesaver.
