Seven-year-old Purdy and Penny arrived at the rescue centre in Kensal Green, North West London, a few months ago, after their owners split up. Despite being lovely friendly dogs they have repeatedly been overlooked for a second chance home.
Joanna said: “Purdy is just one of many dogs at the Mayhew Animal Home who desperately need a loving home.
“Thousands of dogs in the UK are just thrown away – or lose their homes – when things get tough which is why we need rescue centres but they are stretched to breaking point. It’s great to have National Adoption Month as a reminder to help dogs who are not quite so lucky at finding a second home. As a passionate animal lover I would urge people to consider adopting a rescue dog which is hugely rewarding for all sides.”
Caroline Yates, Mayhew Chief Executive, added: “Penny and Purdy ended up in care through no fault of their own. They are lovely dogs who are used to a family environment. They lost their family and understandably they don’t want to be separated. They need a home together.”
Dog Adoption Month runs until October 31st and is aimed at raising awareness of the many rescue animals across the UK in need of a home.
