The 37th Ealing Animal Welfare Bazaar encouraged respect and compassion for all creatures.
The event, attended by hundreds of people, took place at Hanwell Methodist Church on March 7.
More than 30 animal welfare charities had stalls at the bazaar representing local, national and international charities, including Dogs Trust, The Mayhew Animal Home, Ealing and Hanwell RSPCA, Blue Cross, National Animal Welfare Trust and Animals Asia, Sea Shepherd and World Wide Fund for Nature.
Presentations were given by Four Paws, Blue Cross, Brooke Hospital for Animals, Stop Puppy Farming – End Cruelty, Sea Shepherd and Animals Asia, as well as a full programme of talks running throughout the day.
The Mayor of Ealing Councillor Tej Ram Bagha and MP for Ealing North Stephen Pound attended the event to support all the charities present.
Marion Garnett, organiser of the Ealing Animal Welfare Bazaar, said she founded it in 1978 with the aim of encouraging recognition that animals, like people, should be treated with compassion and respect.
She said: “The bazaar was a tremendous success with the people of London showing how much they care about animal welfare.
“But there is still much to do. Our overflowing animal rescue centres and thousands of unwanted animals advertised on the internet plus all too frequent stories of animal cruelty indicate there is no room for complacency. But side by side with stories of cruelty, there are also many stories of kindness.”
