Calling all
Adopted Animals!


Inspired by our recent addition to the Ragamuffin family - a 12 week old rescued puppy named Maple - we are searching for adopted and rescued animals of all sizes, ages and species to participate in the Tails of Adoption book!

From award-winning artist Caitlin McColl (founder of Tails of Australia, and author of Tails of Melbourne and Tails of Tasmania) comes the newest edition in a series of beautiful books celebrating our four-legged friends. Tails of Adoption is a fundraising photobook that tells the uplifting, love-filled stories of Melbourne's rescued pets.

The Inspiration

My little family recently opened our home and hearts to a crazy, teeny rescue puppy named Maple. The last few weeks have been a blur of sleep-deprivation, toilet training, chewed up socks and wild zoomies around the house - and we wouldn't have it any other way!

It's all worth it for those beautiful moments. The way she curls up beside us in that tight little ball, or the pitter patter of her feet following us from room to room, or watching her snuggle our older rescued dog Lyra and wrestle with our rescue cat, Will.

Maple is already part of our family - we are all utterly, head over heels (and paws!) in love with this little button! I'm so excited to launch a new project celebrating rescued pets and the joy that they bring to our lives!
