Cara Delevingne supports animal welfare campaign

Cara Delevingne says owning an animal involves “a lot of time, love and money.”
The British model – who has a pet rabbit Cecil – is leading a new animal welfare campaign and wants people to create original artworks celebrating their pets to help raise awareness and funds for the New Hope Animal Rescue organisation.
Launching the #Art4animals charity campaign, the 22-year-old beauty said: “I’m concerned by the level of cruelty suffered by animals at the hands of humans, and I believe we have a responsibility to stand up against animal abuse, and help provide those animals who have suffered, a second chance.
“Owning a pet is not all about the ‘cute factor’ – it involves a lot of time, love and money, so if you’re thinking about getting any animal as a gift for someone at Christmas, or any time of the year, make sure you are ready for the commitment!”
The actress has also teamed up with Talenthouse, the online community of creatives, for the campaign and will “curate” an online exhibition of the artworks, which will be auctioned and also turned into limited edition prints.
She said: “This is such an exciting, worthy cause and I can’t wait to see the art work that Talenthouse’s global creative community produces. I hope you will join me in raising money and awareness for this fantastic rescue and all the animals that rely on it.”
People are invited to submit artworks online with further details at
