Share your love for your pets this Valentine’s Day by channelling your inner Shakespeare and writing a love letter or poem for your favourite furry pals.
The Yours Furever campaign by Blue Cross has been kicked off by five animal-loving celebrities – Eastenders actress Emma Barton, actress and model Jorgie Porter, comedian Bill Bailey, Strictly Come Dancing star Anton Du Beke, and classical singer Russell Watson.
“My two dachshund’s really are the perfect example of why dogs are a man’s best friend,” Anton Du Beke says. “They greet me every day with their tails wagging, they bring my mood up when I’m feeling down, and my daily walks with them keep me feeling energised and active. Thank you Antonious and Branston, life wouldn’t be the same without you!”
“We are launching the Yours Furever campaign to raise awareness of the life-changing impact that pets can have on our lives,” explains Alyson Jones, Head of Rehoming at Blue Cross. “In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, we’re reminded now, more so than ever before, just how much our pets have positively impacted our lives and supported us through an incredibly tough year.“
Taking part in the Yours Furever campaign is simple – all pet owners need to do is write a poem or letter explaining why their pet is so special to them, and then share this on Twitter or Instagram – tagging @the_blue_cross and using the hashtag #YoursFurever. The love letter will be featured on the Blue Cross website for other pet owners across the country to see.
