We are looking for Lockdown Heroes!

Has owning a pet been a lifesaver during lockdown?

We are looking for stories for our Autumn newsletter of how pet ownership has helped our local community cope with the stresses and strains of lockdown. Is there a cat who has soothed you in times of anxiety? Or maybe there is a dog in your life who has made you 'get up and go,' when you didn't think you could. Often, we have to keep calm and carry on for our furry friends whether we feel like it or not.  

We would love to hear your stories of how pets have helped you in the last few months. We're not expecting a long essay and you don't have to be the next JK Rowling. All we need is a paragraph or two straight from the heart about a pet that you think is a Lockdown Hero. Please email us at info@leicesteranimalaid.org.uk  Please also send a photograph of the pet.     

We will put the best couple of stories in our Autumn newsletter which goes out to around 10,000 people. We can withhold your identity if you prefer, but it would be nice to show the pet.
