A dog found abandoned in a supermarket in Willesden Green has inspired the store’s deputy manager to run a half marathon for an animal charity.
David McAdam will put on his running shoes and taking part in the Royal Parks Foundation Half Marathon in aid of The Mayhew Animal Home in Trenmar Gardens, Kensal Green.
Mr McAdam decided to put his best foot forward after the one-year-old dog was found tied to railings outside Sainsbury’s in Walm Lane, with a note saying “Wanted: Loving Owner”.
A colleague called the Mayhew who took in Paws, as he has now been named, and following a full vet check-up he has been found a new home.
Mr McAdam said “The Mayhew is doing great things in the local community. Seeing how they were able to help Paws has been fantastic and I’m even more thrilled now to be able to raise funds that will go towards helping other abandoned animals like Paws.”
