I’m supporting @PDSA – Help a Vet Save a Star campaign. This Christmas, the owners of sick and injured pets are going through the darkest of times, experiencing the fear of losing their closest friend. PDSA exists to provide life-saving treatment to these pets when their owners simply can’t afford to. Over the festive season this amazing charity will care for more than 50,000 pets in need. But they desperately need our help #SaveAStar https://goo.gl/UdC4W5
