Cara leads animal cruelty campaign

Cara Delevingne is leading an animal welfare campaign to encourage responsible ownership of pets.

The model and actress wants people to create artworks celebrating animals which will not only raise awareness, but also benefit a charity.

Cara, who features in new Michael Winterbottom film The Face Of An Angel, will "curate" an online exhibition of the works which will also be turned into limited edition prints.

She teamed up with the charity New Hope Animal Rescue and an online creative community, Talenthouse, for the Art4animals campaign.

Cara 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."

People are invited to submit artworks online with further details at
