I am pleased to be taking part in the Westminster Dog of the Year 2022, an annual event run by Dogs Trust and the Kennel Club.
I will be taking part with a Dogs Trust rescue dog to recognise the great work of the charity and to showcase the dogs who are looking for new homes. I am proud to have a Dogs Trust Rehoming & Adoption Centre in our constituency. I look forward to championing the fantastic work they do for rescue dogs in South Wales!
I was inspired to enter the contest in memory of my colleague, the late Sir David Amess, who was a great supporter of animal welfare and this event.
This year the contest includes the Sir David Amess Public Vote award. You can vote for Team Bridgend here.
