Our Ambassadors

Susie Chan

Susie Chan is an endurance runner, Peloton Instructor and dog lover. She has run races in some of the most inhospitable places in the world, and can be found running around Hampshire in her spare time. She has three dogs at home, and one is a Romanian rescue dog from Paws2Rescue. The chance of giving an ex street dog a home, and seeing him grow and change from a scared, unhappy dog to a carefree joyful dog has been one of her most enjoyable experiences. Manny, the rescue dog loves to run too, and is never too far from her side. Susie is absolutely delighted to be an ambassador for Paws2Rescue and support our work getting dogs off the street and to safe happy homes.
We are also very proud to be supported in our work by lifelong animal advocate, Angela Humphery, best selling author, Jane Fallon and animal rights advocate Dominic Dyer.
