Animals are God’s special creatures. To many of us they are like family members or best friends.
Unfortunately life can sometimes be cruel and many domestic pets end up in rescue shelters.
Fortunately, some of these stories have a happy ending.
Many of us have experienced the joy of providing a 'forever home' to one of these lovable furry creatures.
Kwarts Publishers invite you to share your story, by participating in this writing opportunity with a difference. Aiming to help animals in distress, we plan to publish a compilation of stories of how these furry friends have touched our hearts.
This publication will be available for sale from July this year and all proceeds will go to Woodrock Animal Rescue.

  • Entry is free and anyone can enter. You can send in as many entries as you wish to. Entries may be in English or Afrikaans. We reserve the right to edit all entries received.
  • We will not accept any entries that do not comply with our submission guidelines.
  • All entries must be sent to us digitally. Hand-written entries will not be accepted.
  • Each entry must be accompanied by your name and surname, email address and a short description of yourself. We would also welcome a photograph of you and your furry friend.
The closing date is 15 April 2016. Your entry must be not less than 400 words and not more than 800.

We reserve the right to publish extracts of the entries received on our facebook page, website and other publishing platforms. Send your entries to [email protected]

There are no prizes – this is not a competition, but rather a writing opportunity. We plan to publish a compilation of the best entries received in a special publication later this year.
