Oasis singer Liam Gallagher is the first dog loving celebrity to sign a classic Epiphone Casino guitar, which will be auctioned at Pup Aid 2010 – the UK’s first charity boutique music festival and fun celebrity-judged dog show.
Pup Aid 2010 will take place in Brighton on September 19, and aims to raise public awareness about the cruel industry of puppy farming – described as “the battery farming of dogs in the UK purely for profit”.
Liam signed the guitar when he and his All Saints wife Nicole Appleton and their Dachshund, Ruby Tuesday, met TV vet Marc Abraham in the Gibson Guitar Showroom in central London.
Marc, resident vet on ITV’s This Morning and Sky1’s My Pet Shame, said: “As a massive Oasis fan I’m honoured Liam and Nicole are involved and helping me to promote dog welfare as well as raising much-needed funds for both rescue and the research into the health and happiness of all dogs.”
This uniquely signed Epiphone Casino guitar will now do a tour of the festivals to gain even more legendary dog-loving signatures and will finally be auctioned at the Pup Aid 2010 event, with monies raised going to Dogs Trust, Kennel Club Charitable Trust, and Oldies Club – a small charity dedicated to the re-homing of older unwanted dogs.
