Celebrities including The Vamps musician James McVey and actors Neil Morrissey and Peter Egan showed their love for all things animal welfare attending The Mayhew Animal Home’s fundraising event ‘Tinsel and Tails’ in London to help raise valuable funds.

Speaking at the event James McVey said: ‘’I’ve always loved animals. I grew up in Dorset with horses, cows and donkeys so it’s awesome to attend an event like this with incredible TheraPaws dogs.

“I eventually want to adopt an older cat from The Mayhew as it’s so important to give pets a loving home. When I buy a house I’m heading to the rescue centre.

‘’Millions of animals need homes. It’s really important for me to tell people my age of the amazing work the Mayhew does and spread the word.’’

Neil Morrissey, who has previously adopted from The Mayhew, said: ‘’I got Tiggy when she was three-years-old. She’s everything to me, she’s my screensaver, my four-legged friend, my child, my princess. She was found as a puppy abandoned in the streets. She wasn’t microchipped so the owner couldn’t be traced.

“The Mayhew is a fantastic place which does fantastic work. I would urge people to get down there today to rescue a pet. ”

A record-breaking £14,500 was raised on the night. Speaking of the success the charity’s Chief Executive, Caroline Yates, said: “It was a great night for The Mayhew. I’d like to thank everyone who came along and put their hands in the pockets for the pets. All the money raised will go towards rescuing and rehoming them.”
