MELINDA AND KIM AMONG STARS PRESENTING 'PET PAWTRAITS' FOR CHARITY

22 AUGUST 2008


Posing with her Shitsu dog cuddled on her lap, TV presenter and model Melinda Messenger took part in a photoshoot with a difference recently. The pretty blonde is just one of many British celebrities who have sat for pictures with their adored pets for an animal charity calendar.

Says Melinda of her pooch: "Sushi is a valuable part of the family and I cannot imagine life without her."

Other stars who have contributed to the 'Pet Pawtraits' 2009 year planner for PDSA include Corrie's Kym Ryder and her long-haired Chihuahua Charlie, comedian Johnny Vegas and his miniature dachshund Frank, and GMTV star Jenni Falconer and pug-beagle cross Alfie. Feline friends are also featured, including singer Sandi Thom's black-and-white cat Toots.

Sales from the calendar will go towards helping to provide free veterinary care for pets whose owners may not be able to afford to pay. It's on sale in PDSA shops across Britain and available from the organisation's website.
