Laura Hamilton

Laura was born and raised in Canada. She later lived in the U.S.A. with three dogs and three cats before moving to England to marry Jim, a British Airways captain. They were away together too often to have pets.
After Jim died from cancer, Laura bought a Golden Retriever who she named Pilot. Now, seven years later she also has Pilot’s offspring, Lily, who was born with a life-threatening swallowing disability. Lily's amazing story is told in Laura's first book, “Lily: One in a Million, A Miracle of Survival.” Lily now also features in a children’s book, “The Adventures of Lily and the Little Lost Doggie,” which was both written and illustrated by Laura.

In 2019, Laura Hamilton was given a
Citizen of Honour Award for her work with Lily and Pilot in Pets As Therapy's Read2Dogs programme in Fareham, Hampshire. Both Laura's books mention the work her 'girls' do in Read2Dogs.
