Ian Hughes 20th Jun, 2021

PETS will be centre stage at The Myton Hospices Positively Pawfect Virtual Pet Show.

If you think your pet has got what it takes to be champion, then The Myton Hospices is inviting you to sign up to its Positively Pawfect Virtual Pet Show and help raise some vitals funds in the process.

There are ten categories to enter your faithful friend into – and all you have to do be in with a chance of victory and winning some fabulous prizes – is register online, take a photo or video of your furry, feathered or scaly friend and submit it for judging.

Entry costs £3 per category and you can enter as many categories as you want as long as your pet fits the bill.

Submissions can be made until June 30 with the winners announced on July 7.

All money raised will play a vital role in enabling The Myton Hospices to continue to support people with a life-limiting illness, and their families, across Coventry and Warwickshire.

Rebecca Richards, events manager at Myton, said: “We were blown away by the support we received for our Virtual Dog Show in the height of the pandemic last year and wanted to open up the fun to all pet owners this time around.

“The Virtual Pet Show is a great way to have some fun, share the pleasure of your wonderful pet with the Myton community and raise vital funds for a local charity too.

“Not forgetting the chance to win some fantastic prizes and the title of Best in Category or even Best in Show!”
