In news that will probably make you swoon/sigh/melt, David Gandy, the man for whom the words chisel-jawed and hunk seem invented for, has been named Ambassador for Battersea Dogs and Cats Home, the charity that takes poor little abandoned animals and gives them new homes. It’s a match made in girls-who-love-animals heaven.

Gandy, the British model who is probably best known for those Dolce & Gabbana Light Blue fragrance ads in which he lounges around in a boat looking unfeasibly sexy, also happens to be a total animal lover and has been a regular at Battersea ever since he was given the gift of sponsoring a kennel at the home, so he was more than happy to take on the role:

It’s a real honour to be invited to be Battersea’s first ambassador. The work they do to find homes for thousands of dogs and cats every year is amazing. I hope my involvement will make people think of choosing a rescue dog or cat from Battersea for their next pet.

Well, hey, if a visit to Battersea means the chance of bumping into you Dave, then I think they just might.

Seriously, though, the Home does a lot of really great work, in particular in tackling the problem of responsible pet ownership. Out of the 5,000 dogs that the charity took in last year, more than 1,800 of them were Staffordshire Bull Terriers, some of them trained to be aggressive by irresponsible owners. Battersea launched a campaign last year is calling for a review of the existing dog laws to help reduce the UK’s stray and dangerous dog problem.

And now they’ve got a new ally in the form of mega hottie David:

Battersea is determined to help tackle the problem of the strays on our streets and start chipping away at people’s attitudes towards more responsible pet ownership and breeds such as Staffies and I hope to help support them as much as I can.

Isn’t that adorable? Watch the View the David Gandy and Battersea video below or visit the Battersea website.
