His owner said: “Henry Wee Wheels was rescued in China by Slaughterhouse Survivors Animal Rescue and is now living life in the fast lane on two wheels in the UK. Henry had horrific injuries which left him with a broken back. He is now a full-time therapy dog visiting schools and sharing his experiences with children and offering support to both special needs and mainstream children. He facilitates talking about acts of kindness, resilience, being different, bullying, disability awareness and determination. He also gives great cuddles.”

Both winners win £1000 in Edgard & Cooper naturally tasty dog food and treats.

In line with a mission to become the world’s most sustainable pet food brand, the entire range is easily recyclable thanks to the paper-based bags used for dry dog food, treats and dental products. So far, use of sustainable packaging efforts has saved nearly 7.5 million plastic bags from being produced.

In addition, 1% of all sales go to The Edgard & Cooper foundation- a standalone charitable entity set up to improve the lives of dogs and cats around the world. To date, nearly £140,000 has been donated.
