Wendy’s passion for animal welfare made her an obvious choice to host Channel 4’s prime time show Absolutely Animals; a hard hitting investigative format which was filmed worldwide. This show was a fore-runner to Pet Rescue which Wendy hosted for 7 years. Pet Rescue went out daily and was consistently one of the highest rated daytime shows across all channels. Spin-offs from Pet Rescue were The Pet Rescue Roadshow and Family Pet Rescue. Pet Rescue repeats were the most watched shows on Animal Planet.
In her spare time Wendy enjoys going to horse shows with her show hunter stallion, gardening and making candle holders from old drinks cans, greetings cards from all manner of rubbish, bracelets from recycled jewellery and brooches from old plastic bottles – amongst other various creations! She studied art and ceramics at A Level and has a particular skill for creating handmade one off pieces. (Ceramics is a passion – coming from The Potteries (Stoke-on-Trent!)) She has sold her jewellery at various London markets and has managed to make a bob or two!
Wendy does not eat or wear animals and is proud to be a Patron of: The Vegan Society, The Vegetarian Society, The Humane Research Trust, Viva!, The Born Free Foundation, Mane Chance Horse Sanctuary, Secret World Wildlife Rescue, Chance Pixies, Rotherham Women’s Refuge and Animal Lifeline.
