A Kensal Green animal shelter has been chosen by a high profile child suffering from a rare muscle condition to benefit from a new photo exhibition.
The Mayhew has been hand picked by animal lover Owen Howkins, who suffers from a genetic disorder which leaves his muscle in a permanent state of tension, to be one of the charities officially associated with the online exhibition, Pawtraits.
The eight-year-old claims his life changed when his parents adopted Haatchi, a three-legged Anatolian shepherd who survived being hit by a train after being dumped in a railway yard.
The digital showpiece comprises photos collated over the past 20 months by media photographer Maria Slough.
Profits from subsequent sales will go to the animal home or one of the other 30 charities listed.
