We are associates of The Cactus Foundation. This is an African based, direct-action organisation for the protection and welfare of animals and children in Africa. Together, we produce children’s books to inspire children towards care of the Earth and animals
Our association came about following the brutal torture and burning of a little dog by children on the instruction of their father. Phoebe, as she is now known, was saved by a remarkable vet and through the intervention of Sarah Clayton. Sarah recognised that the children were as much the victims of abuse as was the little dog, so she set out to remedy this through the Cactus Foundation.
Phoebe is now an ambassador for the rights of children and animals. Read her story here.
We are proud to publish the first title in her name:
THE PHOEBE BOOK OF POEMS FOR CHILDREN
