We’re honoured to have their backing as we continue on our vast but essential mission to care for thousands more stray dogs around the world.
We are delighted to introduce our incredible Wild at Heart Foundation Champion. Ferran Torres will work together to make the world a better and safer place for all street dogs. As a Champion for the Foundation, the footballer will contribute to raising awareness and working towards the rescue of stray and abandoned dogs in the face of the rising tide of cruelty, abuse and neglect.
We’re honoured to include a host of wonderful people within the Wild at Heart Foundation family. All of our ambassadors share one crucial characteristic – a passion for dogs, and a commitment to changing the lives of those in need. Thanks to their support and dedication, they help spread the message of our work to thousands more people, and have lent their time, passion, and expertise to help us raise much needed funds.
A long time supporter of Wild at Heart Foundation, David (and his rescue dog Dora!) are incredible ambassadors for the joy of giving a loving home to a dog who needs it most.
Thanks to their 2018 Christmas campaign which saw Dora visiting her favourite friends around London (including, of course, Nikki and her dogs!), David raised vital funds for the charity which helped support the rehoming of hundreds more dogs from shelters around the world.
David continues to show his support wherever he can from fundraising to awareness campaigns, and we’re so be able to to call him a member of the Wild at Heart Foundation family.
Pixie has been a supporter of Wild at Heart Foundation since its conception, accompanying us on our first project trip to Lesvos in 2016 where she met with our partner shelter and helped promote the stray dogs in residence, helping us to find them their perfect forever homes.
In 2019, she joined us in Puerto Rico where she volunteered for six gruelling days. From pulling vaccines and administering worming and flea treatments, to taking temperatures and clipping toe nails, Pixie rolled up her sleeves and proved herself a truly invaluable addition to the Wild at Heart Foundation Recovery team.
Whether it’s DJing at our fundraisers, raising funds through fabulous events, or modelling our Wild at Heart Foundation clothing, Pixie’s generosity and commitment to Wild at Heart Foundation’s mission is truly humbling; we’re honoured to have her support.
Karen first became involved with Wild at Heart Foundation when she adopted beautiful Betty from Bosnia back in 2016. Little did she know that Betty would only be the start of a growing furry family! Betty was joined by Marley from Lesvos in 2018, and a third WAHF dog joined the crew in 2019 – beautiful three-legged wonder, Phoebe from Athens – you can follow their adventures on @adventuresofbettymarleyphoebe!
Karen’s commitment to rehoming dogs in need is unparalleled, and she continues to support the charity whenever and wherever she can. We’re truly honoured to have her on board, and couldn’t be happier that three of our dogs have found such a happy home to call their own.
Lee and Yolande are long time supporters of Wild at Heart Foundation, adopting Ziggy and Heart back in 2017. These beautiful dogs have been shown the kind of love and care that many rescue dogs can only dream off, and Lee and Yolande are dedicated to helping thousands more like them to experience the compassion they deserve.
Both Lee and Yolande have extended their support for the Foundation through a number of fundraising events, and we’re so grateful for the generosity and dedication they’ve shown over the years.

As the creator of not one but two incredible blogs on all things style – @shegoeswear and @shegoeshome – there’s no doubt that Dorothy has impeccable taste. So it’s no surprise that Dorothy also has the perfect taste in dogs! (Not that we’re biased of course…)
Dorothy is the proud adopter of three beautiful rescue dogs: Bailey, Bella and Betsy, who since leaving the shelter in Cyprus and Romania behind them are now living their best lives here in the UK.
Not only has Dorothy changed the lives of all three of her rescue girls, she’s also a big supporter of the charity and helps spread the #adoptdontshop message and support our mission wherever she can. We’re so pleased to call her part of the WAHF family.

Having a firsthand insight into the work we do through three very special dogs, David is very proud to be part of the Wild at Heart Foundation family, and we are very proud to have him and his continued support too.
In his own words, “Wild at Heart Foundation has brought so much happiness into my own life through three dogs who have helped me see life differently. However, it’s also the impact I’ve seen WAHF have on so many others whose lives have been enriched by our furry friends.”
A long time supporter of Wild at Heart Foundation, Hannah offers her incredible PR expertise to the charity and has helped us spread the word of who we are and what we do by securing coverage in a number of national papers, magazines and news channels.

We’re so grateful to Hannah for all that she’s done for us over the years, and catch up meetings over a cup of coffee continue to be one of our favourite ways to spend a morning!

We wouldn’t be the charity we are today with the help, support, and generosity of a whole army of wonderful people. There are hundreds who have helped us grow, and we thank every single person who has contributed to our journey in any way, however small or large.
We’d like to thank the following people for giving up their time and talent so genuinely, so willingly, (and so regularly!)
PAAW House is an online community for dog lovers born out of the love for pet friendly places and spaces, as well as tolerance for those who consider pets to be part of their family. They advocate for more reasonable laws and motions regarding pet ownership for people who rent (alongside many other wonderful causes!) and offer lots of tips for the best pet friendly places and events in London.
In 2019, they hosted their launch in support of Wild at Heart Foundation. Over the years they have continued to extend their generosity to the charity through promotion, fundraising and events whenever they can.
Thank you PAAW House for your incredible support!

DJ Nikki Beatnik is a long time supporter of Wild at Heart Foundation, and lends her effortlessly cool ear to a number of our events and fundraisers.

Rebecca and Mike from The Country Dog Hotel first approached us in 2018 wanting to help and we’re so glad they did! Whether it’s volunteering at our events (Mike’s raffle ticket selling skills are something to behold!) or spreading the word to their customers and clients, TCDH are always willing do whatever they can to support Wild at Heart Foundation.
In fact, in October 2019, Mike took his commitment to the cause one step further – literally! – and ran a half marathon ro raise funds for stray dogs in need, raising a whopping £1,000! We’re so grateful to have the support of this dynamic duo.

Kayte has been a longtime supporter of Wild at Heart Foundation, accompanying us on project trips where her coverage of our shelter and dogs have helped to truly capture the heart of the project, as well as shooting a number of stunning photographs for this very website.

Artist and designer Simeon Farrar is not only a very great friend of the charity, he is also the creative froce behind so much of the Wild at Heart Foundation brand! Simeon lends his artistic talents to support us in any way he can – from designing and hand-printing our incredible range of merchandise (including fabulous limited editions that, inevitably, fly off the shelves!), to styling the logo, strapline and website adornments that accompany our brilliant new branding.
We’re incredibly grateful for Simeon’s ongoing support – he’s always patient (even when we throw crazy production deadlines his way!) and his constant stream of fresh and innovative designs are a much cherished part of our Wild at Heart Foundation offering.
Our own lovely Sofia! Sofia was an irreplaceable part of the Wild at Heart Foundation team, and it wouldn’t be the charity it is today without her hard work, passion, determination, and inspiring vision for the future. In the four years she worked for us, Sofia transformed our projects programme, as well as providing vital operations and managerial support.
Sofia was an integral part of getting our Puerto Rico project off the ground. She helped organise and run the very first high-volume sterilisation clinic on the island, an initiative so successful it is now supported by Humane Society US and rolled out three times a year across multiple locations on the island. In fact, it is now the largest, most effective campaign of its kind in the world!
Whilst Sofia no longer works for the charity (she left in 2019 to pursue an exciting new chapter in her life!) she remains at the heart of our family. We’re so very lucky to have had her on board for so long, and are grateful for her continued support, love and all round superstardom!
Aidan is quite simply one of the most talented photographers we’ve ever met. His skill for capturing the emotion of a moment is utterly breathtaking, and we’re so honoured to call him a friend of Wild at Heart.
Aidan is always willing to lend his expertise to help the Foundation in whatever way he can – from merchandise shoots, to project trips, where his coverage helps us to powerfully document the harsh but moving reality of the situation overseas. Aidan has joined us on our project trips to Lesvos, Puerto Rico and Lebanon, and we can’t wait to see where he’ll accompany us next!
Harriet Rose is not only a long time supporter of Wild at Heart Foundation and all things dog rescue, she’s also an amazing DJ who is always willing to lend a hand at our events and fundraisers.
