For the Press

For information about the foundation, please take a look in media archive, or read Bella’s Story

We ask you to contact us first before using these images, and to acknowledge their source as to help us raise awareness. Bear in mind alarmist articles are not helping our cause and we do not believe in causing panic amongst the nation that pets give humans MRSA, when in fact it is the other way around.

For news, images and interviews from our press office, contact BMF media adviser Emma Cooper on 07787512427

For media interviews with BMF President Jill Moss
Contact 07860 879079 or email info@thebellamossfoundation.com

Jill can put you in touch with owners who are willing to have their story covered in the press. We have great stories of how animals have recovered from near death, and sadly some animals have died.
