James is passionate about animal welfare, and has a particular love for dogs. He was fascinated with animals growing up, and begged his parents to have companion animals around the house.
Along with Katie, he began volunteering at the Greyhound Trust in 2016, from which he adopted two dogs of his own – Rosie and Charlie. Seeing so many amazing dogs there unwanted and unloved was a heartbreaking experience, and James is incredibly proud to support Katie in her efforts to make the world a better place for dogs through the amazing work she does with Angels for Animals Foundation.
James finds it hard to believe that anyone would choose to shop rather than adopt when there are so many dogs in need.
