Mary Burgess is the founder of the Animal Star Awards.
As an animal lover, Mary wanted to create an awards brand to recognise animals and people who love them and whose lives wouldn't be the same without them.
The awards will not only recognise animals that do extraordinary things for us humans but give deserved recognition to humans that do extraordinary things for animals.
The Animal Star brand will eventually offer an online shop for animal accessories and grooming products.
Also the brand will incorporate 'petfestivaluk', local events to celebrate animals.
The awards will support three charities (to be announced soon)
The launch for the awards will take place in April 2017.
Mary will be supported by a team of friends and industry experts to ensure the awards are amazing.
Sponsorship opportunites are now available
