Celebs back 'lonely hearts' pets campaign

Wednesday May 27th 2015

Celebrities are backing a campaign to see more pets find their way into secure permanent homes.

Martin Clunes, Bill Oddie, Peter Egan, Pauline McLynn and Pam Ayres are among the famous faces supporting National Unwanted Pet Week.

They have given their voice to specially created "lonely hearts" videos, which feature homeless dogs, cats and other animals looking for a new family. Each film has been specially created to reflect the personality of the animal.

National Unwanted Pet Week is organised by the animal charity Wood Green. It is now in its second year, helping hundreds of pets that do not have a loving home, nutritious food or a warm bed.

The latest instalment will run until May 31, with a new video launched daily on the charity's website.

Sally Stevens, of Wood Green, says it is depressing to see the number of animals abandoned by their owners. She hopes the special videos will encourage people to come forward and give pets in need a home.
