Pets can make us feel safe and grounded. In many cases they’re integral to our sense of home and people will go to great lengths to protect them – even, in some cases, at their own risk. But it doesn’t have to be that way, sometimes people and their pets just need a little help with their exit strategy.

In this story, Selena Shannon visits a special shelter at the RSPCA that provides a safe bed for pets, only not in the usual way.

Produced and narrated by Selena Shannon and originally broadcast on FBi Radio as part of All the Best episode #1604: Doggie. Opening narration from All the Best host Pip Rasmussen.
