Sir David Amess MP

Sir David Amess MP

We are devastated to hear of the death of Sir David.

He was a huge dog lover and always supported our work - most recently as a key member of our Puppy Smuggling Taskforce, supporting our campaign to end the cruel puppy smuggling trade.

Sir David regularly attended our events, entering his beloved dogs into our Westminster Dog of the Year competition.

He also visited and championed his local Dogs Trust rescue centre in Basildon.

Our thoughts are with his family, friends, colleagues and the community he served as their MP.

Thank you, Sir David, for caring and for making a difference to the lives of dogs here in the UK.

Owen Sharp, Chief Executive of Dogs Trust
