Care And Respect Includes All Dogs (C.A.R.I.A.D.) is proud to announce that the brilliant actor and passionate animal advocate, Peter Egan, has agreed to become Patron of the organisation.

The much-loved and respected actor is passionate about rescue dogs and has five adopted dogs as part of his family. Of his new role with C.A.R.I.A.D. he said: “I have admired and supported the great work C.A.R.I.A.D. have been doing for many years now, so I am both proud and thrilled, in equal measure, to become their Patron.”

C.A.R.I.A.D. Founder Linda Goodman said, “We are honoured and thrilled that Peter has agreed to be our Patron. It is an amazing start to what we hope will be another extraordinary year of progress for the Lucy’s Law campaign with Wales launching its consultation on 22nd February. We have many ambitious plans for this year as part of our solutions-based approach to dog welfare issues and this is a huge boost for the morale of our small team. Peter has always been an active supporter of our work over the years and an incredible friend. His compassion for all animals is an inspiration to us and to millions around the world. He is a national treasure.”
