The campaign is the next part of NOAH’s ‘Happy, Healthy Pets Project’. NOAH will also work with a guest judge to will help NOAH to select the winner.

One lucky winner will receive a £125 voucher for pet treats and supplies.

Through the act of snapping and sharing a photograph of their pets, NOAH and hopes to highlight the importance of building relationships that can help to keep pets happy and healthy all year round.

NOAH Chief Executive, Dawn Howard comments: “We know how important our pets are to us – 40% pet owners confess to loving their pet more than their partner! It’s really important to think about keeping your pet healthy as well as loved. Creating a strong bond with your pet is vital to their happiness and wellbeing, as well as bringing of joy and contentment to pet owners. Animals bring so much to our lives, and we in turn can bring so much to theirs if we know how to love and care for them well. We hope that our latest competition showing the UK’s happiest and healthiest pets and their owners will help drive the conversation further and help inspire hundreds of others to join them.”
