Filming starts on new video to reduce dog attacks on children

Pet respect


Filming has got under way on a new video aimed at showing children how to behave around dogs and reduce the number of youngsters who are victims of dog attacks.

The project, by Hull-based Pet Respect, has been made possible thanks to a grant of over £900 from The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust.

The Trust was set up to mark the 15th anniversary of Neil Hudgell Solicitors, specialists in compensation claims for personal injury, medical negligence and professional negligence. The firm, which employs 110 staff, serves clients in England and Wales from offices in London, Hull and Leeds.

Pet Respect is a charity, operating in Hull and the East Riding, which aims to educate people about animals, to engage as many primary school children as possible and to use innovative ideas to promote responsible pet ownership and prevent animal cruelty.

Kim Hepple, who along with Marina Hartley founded the charity said: “This funding will enable us to make a real difference by creating a video showing children how to behave around dogs.  We hope to show it to as many pre-school and primary children as possible so that they know what to do and what not to do when near dogs and so reduce the risk of being injured.”

The video is being made by the volunteers at Pet Respect and features two of Pet Respect’s canine members Jess and Shadow who are both border collies.

Jo Hudgell, who heads the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust, said: “We are very pleased to support Pet Respect and its work to keep children and animals safe.  This is a very worthwhile project which is also directly relevant to cases handled by Neil Hudgell Solicitors.”

Samantha Strafford, personal injury expert at Neil Hudgell Solicitors, is currently dealing with four cases of people who’ve suffered dog bites in the Hull area.  Sam said: “We know from first-hand experience the devastating effects of dog attacks on people’s health and well-being.  Any measures, like this film, which will help to prevent people, especially children, from being injured by dogs and other pets, have to be welcomed.”

In the 18 months since the Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust started operating, it has touched the lives of an estimated 2300 people.  The Trust is keen to help more people and welcomes applications.  The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust can give up to £60,000 a year, in grants worth up to £1,000 each, to good causes in Yorkshire which support local communities and promote sports, health, wellbeing and educational aspiration.

The Neil Hudgell Solicitors Trust is administered by the Hull and East Yorkshire Community Foundation.  More information is available from hudgellv2.wpengine.com/about-us/
