​A group of rescue pets have gone behind the lens to mark the launch of a nationwide appeal, asking animal lovers to donate just 50p to provide a meal to an animal in need this Christmas.

Support Adoption For Pets, the UK’s largest grant-giving animal charity, captured the looks on the faces of rescue cats and dogs as they were presented with a much-needed meal.

Running until Christmas Eve, Support Adoption For Pets will be raising money in Pets At Home stores across the country, including in Alnwick.

Pets At Home customers shopping for presents for their pets this Christmas will be invited to support the Santa Paws appeal by donating just 50p at the till point.
