When Harry Met Hero


Inspired by a true story, When Harry Met Hero was made to promote the adoption of rescue dogs and raise awareness of the #AdoptDontShop campaign against puppy farming. Words sometimes fall short of describing the connection we have with rescue dogs, but Harry and Hero represent this idea perfectly on-screen. To demonstrate our support for rescue dog adoption, we pledge to donate 50p from every online sale to the charity All Dogs Matter.

The Harry Met Hero video went viral and has now been seen over 10m times on Facebook and has helped raised awareness and funds for the causes we are passionate about.
