Look-a-like owners are sought by rehoming dogs

Do you look like a dog? Do any of your friends?

Well, now here is the chance for you or your friends to rehome a dog or cat that looks just like you.

A nationwide appeal by company My Nametags to find human look-a-likes for the dogs at Battersea Dogs & Cats Home has been launched, encouraging people to share images of their friends that bear a resemblance to their adorable canines.

They aim to help seven of Battersea’s most loveable pets find a forever-home.

The company is hoping to spread the word about the very special residents and encourage animal-lovers around the UK to have some fun and get involved via the My Nametags social media channels.

People from across the country are invited to participate by tagging a friend on their Facebook, Twitter or Instagram pages for the chance to be featured on the My Nametags social pages.

Lars B Andersen, managing director at My Nametags, said: “Following the success of our Doggie Doubles campaign, which saw the creation of a huge gallery of pet look-a-likes, earlier this year, we are thrilled to be working closely with Battersea Dogs & Cats Home again.

“It’s a common belief that pets can look like their owners, so what better way to find these residents a home than by launching a nationwide search for their human look-a-likes?”

The campaign will run until Thursday, January 25 and hopes to find some of Battersea’s loneliest residents a new home.

Battersea Dogs & Cats Home’s centre manager Robert Young said, “We’re thrilled to be working with My Nametags on this fun initiative and we hope it will help the dogs in our care to find a home.

“Some of our dogs like Eddie, Serena and Diesel  have been with us for 100 days and this is a way to help spread the word about all the love they have to offer.”
