Snap into action with the Mewes Vets for Smokey Paws!
It’s the time of year we all look forward to at The Mewes Vets. We have once again begun our Pet Photo Calendar Competition!
For those of you who aren’t aware of our Calendar Competition, owners are invited to send in their favourite cute, action or funny photo of their pet, to enter them into our calendar competition draw.
One winner is announced as the face of each month, each winning a prize, with an overall winner, the front page pet, receiving a prize of £100 of pet food.
The Mayor of Haywards Heath, Cllr James Knight, has very kindly agreed to be the judge this year, and we are sending all proceeds to a new cause called Smokey Paws Ltd.
This is a not for profit organisation which is campaigning for and providing the Fire Service with specialist face masks for pets who get caught up in house fires.
Smokey Paws say that 46% of households in the UK have pets, and with over 40,000 house fires a year, it’s an unfortunate fact that pets die from smoke inhalation. Smokey Paws, with your help, give specially designed pet oxygen masks to the UK fire services, and we are really keen to see the number of stations equipped with these masks rise.
Our 2018 Pet Photo Calendar Competition is free to enter. Send your favourite shot to firstname.lastname@example.org or on our Facebook event page available at this link https://goo.gl/UYGhGw .
The closing date for entries is midnight on Saturday 28th October.
We arrange for as many as possible to appear, even non-prize winners, so you have an excellent chance of your pet being featured. Our hope is to raise as much money as possible for Smokey Paws to get some of the special oxygen masks to our local Fire Service as soon as possible: it’s such a great idea!
Calendars will be launched, and the prizes awarded at our Christmas Party at 10am on Saturday 2nd December.
I hope that you will support both by entering your best photographs, and by making a date for our party.
