Have you rescued a companion animal who rescued you right back? If so, we’d love to hear from you!

What is a Mutual Rescue story?

Helping homeless companion animals also helps people, often in miraculous ways.

We want to know how you rescued your companion animal and, of equal importance, how your companion animal then rescued you in a profound, life-changing way.

We define “rescue animals” as companion animals who were in need of a home and were adopted from animal shelters or rescue organizations, found abandoned or wounded, removed from a dangerous or abusive environment, or given a new home before they would have ended up homeless or in a shelter.

We value diversity in all elements of our content: animals, people, geographic location, cultures, languages, abilities. We accept stories from all over the world.

We share stories as features in the Stories section of our website, on our social-media pages, and as episodes in our Mutual Rescue Moments film series. 

Helpful hints for submitting your story

• The quality of your writing is not important; the essence of your story is.

•  Clearly show how your story is mutual, benefitting both you and your companion animal in compelling ways.

• Do not include superfluous information. Be concise and clear.

• If your mutual rescue also resulted in positive effects for other people, please describe.

• Upload photos of you and your companion animal. You may also give an optional link to a private or public video, for example on Vimeo or YouTube.
