On Sunday, canines and their owners gathered in full force at Kings Cross St Pancras to draw attention to our campaign to get Eurostar to provide a designated carriage for dogs.
We let the pooches take the lead – marching their owners through the station wearing their #PetsToParis bandanas and their own dogged determination. Celebridogs and their owners – including Rosie Fortescue and Brix Smith Start – turned up to lend their support and raise awareness of our petition.
‘I hate being separated from my dogs Pixie and Gladys! I’m right behind PetsPyjamas’ Pets to Paris campaign because travelling to Paris is vital for my work in fashion and music,’ said television presenter and fashion stylist Brix.
Leah Weller, Leo Gregory and Cheska Hull also tweeted their support on the day.
Our CEO Gracia Amico said to the press, ‘As a dog owner and originally from continental Europe I understand the importance of making it as easy as possible to travel with your dog,’
‘Travelling by Eurostar would open a whole new holiday opportunity for many dog lovers, but also for the hospitality industry on both sides of the channel.’
Since launching our Pets to Paris petition at the beginning of July we have gained over 3,000 signatures with the number growing every day. However, we still need to collect as many signatures as possible so we can show Eurostar that there is a real need and demand for a designated pet-friendly carriage.
If you haven’t already please sign our petition to help get our pets to Paris!
