Eleanor Matsuura - Simon Cowell and a team of celebrities, including violinist Vanessa-Mae, comedian and author Julian Clary, and actors Michael Fox (Downton Abbey) and Eleanor Matsuura (Cuffs) have been photographed with their companion dogs by world renowned portrait photographer, Rankin, to mark the launch of a global campaign by Cruelty Free International to end the use of dogs in experiments. Simon was joined by Squiddly, Diddly and Freddie in Rankin's London studio for the photo shoot to tell the world that dogs do not belong in laboratories. In support of the campaign, Simon said, "I have always loved dogs but had no idea how much happiness they would bring to my life. Squiddly, Diddly and, now, Freddie are hugely important members of my family - and even the thought of any dog being mistreated sickens me. That's why I'm supporting Cruelty Free International - to stop dogs being used for experiments in laboratories around the world. No dog should be treated in such a way. After all, they are man's (and woman's) best friend." Cruelty Free International Ambassador Vanessa-Mae, accompanied by Chihuahua, Max, said, "Dogs share our homes and our lives. The thought of the thousands of dogs who suffer and die in laboratories worldwide is too horrific to comprehend. As an Ambassador for Cruelty Free International, I am speaking out against experiments on dogs. Together we can end this cruelty once and for all." Julian, who was joined by Albert and Valerie, stated: "Albert and Valerie are a part of my family and are always by my side. I adore them, so the idea of so many dogs suffering or dying in experiments right here in the UK and across the world is absolutely heart-breaking. I am delighted to join Cruelty Free International and its new campaign to end the use of dogs in laboratories. " Michelle Thew, Chief Executive of Cruelty Free International, said "We are thrilled to have such high profile support for our global campaign to end experiments on dogs. - London, United Kingdom - Monday 16th November 2015
