Our Patrons

Alan Titchmarsh MBE

Renowned for his expertise in gardening, broadcasting, and writing, Alan Titchmarsh is also a lifelong advocate for animals, particularly dogs. His deep affection for dogs shines through in his consistent efforts to promote their well-being and advocate for responsible pet ownership. As a dedicated pet owner himself, Alan deeply understands the unique bond between humans and their canine companions.

In his recent television work on Channel 5's "Underdog to Superdog," Alan shed light on the crucial role of working dogs in the UK, including those trained by their owners to assist individuals with disabilities. Inspired by this experience, he has proudly taken on the role of Patron for the Assistance Dog Assessment Association (ADAA) in 2024.

In this new capacity, Alan's commitment to dogs takes on added significance as he lends his support to initiatives aimed at improving the lives of individuals with disabilities through the training of their own assistance dogs. With his genuine empathy and steadfast dedication, Alan continues to inspire audiences and make a positive impact in both the gardening world and animal welfare.
