This year, we’re running a UK nationwide search to find an extra special dog or cat to take the title of our PetSafe® Pet Hero 2015. Perhaps you have a super dog or courageous cat, or simply a pet that’s there for you no matter what; we want to hear your stories and how your furry friend has made a difference to your life.
We’re pleased to say the campaign has now officially been launched and will be rolled out regionally, starting with the North West, running until the end of November this year.* We think such amazing pets deserve to be rewarded, so a huge prize pack including a year’s worth of pet toys and a pet friendly holiday worth £500, courtesy of Sykes Cottages, is up for grabs for the national winner! That’s not all as there’ll also be a £250 goody bag for our four lucky regional winners too.
We want to celebrate pet heroes from all walks of life – from service animals, therapy and assistance pets, to simply a much loved pet that’s brought joy in to your life – there’s no deed too big or small to qualify as a Pet Hero.
To kick-start our search, we discovered the inspirational story of Lucie from Chorley, Lancashire, who was trained by Support Dogs, a national charity dedicated to increasing independence and quality of life for people affected by various disabilities. Her owner Alice’s son Alex was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder and getting Lucie has made a real impact to their everyday family life: “Alex and Lucie’s first hour together was simply magical. He engaged with her immediately and deep down I knew something special was taking place. She is more than a dog to us; she is the key to a better life.”
So if you, or a friend or family member, think your pet deserves the chance to be recognised as one of our chosen Pet Heroes then all you have to do is simply send us your pet’s name, along with a photo and brief description of what makes them special to you to: PetSafe® Pet Hero, Hattrick PR 6a Framingham Road, Sale, Cheshire, M33 3SH, Tel: 0161 660 0993. Full details of how to enter can also be found here, along with more of our incredible Pet Hero feature stories.
*The deadline for entries is 15th September and the national final will be held on 3rd December 2015.
