Dog Adoption Month on the Daily Star with Hollyoaks Stars

To help launch National Dog Adoption Month 2013, sponsored by Co-operative Insurance, we were invited to the set of Hollyoaks, Channel 4’s soap where celebrity dog lovers, including Gemma Merna, Anna Passey, Stephanie Davis, Sophie Austin, Joe Tracini, Alex Fletcher and Nicole Barber-Lane from show could show their support for the campaign and encourage more people considering bringing a dog into their homes to consider adopting.

The cast met Cole and Jasper, two dogs at Freshfields Animal Centre in Liverpool who are looking for new homes.
