|Pola is a singer and songwriter, best known for her album ‘My Favourite Town’. Apart from music, animal welfare is her great passion and she is dedicated to using her presence in the media to make a difference for homeless animals. It was when she re-homed two adult dogs, who weren’t wanted by their owners anymore, that she realised there are many dogs like this out there, and many of them end up being put down to sleep or used for dog fighting. She fosters animals who are in need of forever homes and supports many animal charities. Her dream is to live in a world where people adopt dogs instead of breeding them or buying in pet shops.|
