Ricky Gervais Attends Halloween Dogs Event In London

Ricky Gervais Attends Halloween Dogs Event In London

We all know Ricky Gervais is pretty damn passionate when it comes to animals and that's putting it lightly. He once tweeted that he wanted to 'kill this c**t' when a video surfaced of a dog being killed.

So we weren't surprised when we found out that he is a huge supporter of the charity 'All Dogs Matter' which rescues and rehomes pups in and around London.

He deals with the tough side and has been known to tweet about dogs that are up for adoption. But with that also comes the best bit - fancy dress events.

If you're around dogs in general you're pretty much winning at life. But put a dog in a Halloween costume and you've well and truly peaked.

We weren't surprised to see the comedian at the annual 'All Dogs Matter' Halloween event on Hampstead Heath in North London on Sunday.

Around a hundred pooches turned up dressed in inventive costumes before they headed off for a spooky Halloween walk.

There were devils, witches and skeletons at the spooky event and although Gervais didn't get involved with the fancy dress (boring) he was speaking to all the other attendees and made sure he was giving as many of the doggos his undivided attention.

Back in December 2017, Gervais attended an 'All Dogs Matter' charity auction event which ended up raising £4,000. According to Camden New Journal, a painting of Joanna Lumley as an Afghan Hound was auctioned.

He shared the petition urging his fans to sign it so it reaches 100,000 signatures.

According to the petition, selling puppies through commercial third-party dealers isn't great for the dogs' welfare, and also creates additional risks for consumers and public safety.

Six months later and animal welfare advocates were celebrating a victory for the Lucy's Law campaign to end the horrors of puppy and kitten farming.

The government announced in August that it will ban the sale of puppies by pet shops, online dealers and other third party sellers - in a bid to crack down on horrific breeding conditions.

Environment Secretary Michael Gove heaped praise on the campaign, which highlighted how these sellers rely on puppies and kittens supplied by callous commercial breeders.

"We will eliminate puppy farming," he declared in a speech at 10 Downing Street. "We will make sure third party sales of kittens and puppies ends."
