Don’t worry, this collection of kennels isn’t the latest attempt to try and solve the housing crisis.

Instead, the 40-strong display at Stratford International station is set to be auctioned off later this month to raise money for pet charity Blue Cross and the Outdoor Arts Foundation.

And with famous faces including television presenter Anne Robinson, swimmer Rebecca Adlington and classical singer Russell Watson getting creative for the project, successful bidders could be getting their paws on a unique item.

Matt Cull, deputy director of fundraising at Blue Cross said: “We’re very excited about the kennels on display in east London where they will be on view to so many commuters, holiday makers, shoppers and visitors to the capital. We hope they make an interesting and unusual addition to people’s journeys to and from Stratford.”

The kennels will be on display until April 26.
