Is your pet one of the UK’s most heroic hounds? If so, you could win big! A nationwide competition has launched to find an extra special pet to take the title of the UK’s PetSafe® Pet Hero 2015.
The winner will receive a year’s worth of pet toys, as well as a pet friendly holiday worth £500, courtesy of Sykes Cottages. There will also be a £250 goody bag up for grabs for four regional winners along the way.
Celebrating pet heroes from all walks of life – from animals in the services, therapy and assistance pets, or simply a much loved pet who has brought joy in to your life – there’s no hero deed too big or small to qualify for the PetSafe® Pet Hero title.
To start the search, PetSafe® has found inspirational dog, Lucie from Chorley, Lancashire, who was trained by Support Dogs – a national charity dedicated to increasing independence and quality of life for people with various medical conditions.
Her owner, Alice Boardman, whose son Alex was diagnosed with Autism Spectrum Disorder, explains why Lucie is their family’s pet hero. “Alex and Lucie’s first hour together was simply magical. Lucie, or as they call her at Alex’s school ‘The Wonder Dog’, has made previously stressful activities such as going to the supermarket a pleasure.”
She adds: “Alex would have previously been overwhelmed and agitated, but with Lucie by his side he calmly looked around and walked down the aisles – just breathtaking. 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.”
If you think your pet deserves the chance to win the PetSafe® Pet Hero 2015 title simply send your pet’s name, along with a photo and a brief explanation about what makes him/her a hero in by 15th September.
