Justin Madders, MP for Ellesmere Port and Neston, met up with a very special dog at the International Fund for Animal Welfare’s (IFAW) Animal Action Awards event in Parliament.
12-year-old springer spaniel Roscoe, whose keen sense of smell has helped London Fire Brigade investigators sniff out the cause of hundreds of suspicious fires around the Capital and beyond won IFAW’s ‘Animal of the Year’ Award.
“It was great to meet Roscoe and his handler Mick Boyle. Roscoe is an amazing dog whose long service sniffing out the cause of fires has helped keep Londoners safe. His fantastic partnership with handler Mick shows the special relationship between people and animals. Roscoe is a very deserving winner of IFAW’s ‘Animal of the Year’ Award.”
