Pet Show is back in July!


LAA's Facebook Pet Show (now in its third year) will run throughout July 2022, kindly sponsored by Jennifer Amy Photography. This year, the theme is Happy Pets. 

What are the categories?  

There are just 2 categories this year, best cat and best dog. Simple. We do have some AMAZING prizes this year too. 

How do I enter my pet? 

Just post a photo of your pet on Facebook (in landscape format) under the Facebook post pinned at the top of our page. When you do, please tell us your pets name and age. If you want to email your pet pic, you can send it as an attachment to or you can enter by post as long as the picture reaches us before the closing date - again, in all cases, please include a name, age and category. 

How much does it cost? 

Nothing! However, if you would like to make a voluntary donation (and we would love it if you did) please you can do this when you post. For other methods, please see below. The donations will go towards veterinary treatments for animals on the medical foster scheme, of which we currently have 44. You can find out more about this scheme here.  

Any other rules? 

Please see below. To stand a chance of winning, please post a good, clear landscape photo (a 'sideways' photo) showing a good likeness of your pet and the details above. We ask that you please make sure your pet is comfortable with what you are doing.  

What about consent?

Your posts will be visible to others so if there are people and/or children in the picture, please and ask their, or their parents' permission before posting.  

When is the closing date? Midnight on 31st July 2021. We will let you know who has won the following week.  

What are the prizes?

The prizes are super-special this year and have been donated by our kind sponsor, Jennifer Amy Photography

First prize (one for best cat and one for best dog) is a professional photo shoot for your pet, 1 digital image and a matching 8x12 print- worth £114. A rosette and certificate will also be awarded.

Second prize (one for best cat and one for best dog) is a free photo shoot and a free 8x6 print worth £67. A rosette and certificate will also be awarded.

Third prize (one for best cat and one for best dog) is a rosette and certificate and a money off voucher to go towards a pet portrait.  

If you don't donate, can you still win?

Yes! This is a fun, inclusive competition and whether you donate or not does not affect the judges' decision.  

Anything else?

Your post will be visible to others and there's a chance we may use your pet's pic to advertise the competition. Please enter through the fundraiser, by post or email only. Please do not DM us your picture or tag us in because we may miss this.  

How will my donation be spent?

Looking after the animals on our Medical Foster Scheme costs thousands of pounds per year. So, there will not be money 'left over' at the end. Below are a few examples of how your donation could make a difference to an animal with a medical condition: 

£2.00 could buy some food for an animal with a special diet.

£5.00 could go towards medication 

£50.00 could buy hypoallergenic dog food to last a sensitive dog up to 3 months

£80.00 could pay for steroids and other treatments for a dog with a skin allergy for 2-3 months 

I don't want to be in the competition but can I still make a donation? Yes, please! We would love a donation, thank you. You can donate through the button below or the following ways. Please leave us a message if you do so that we can thank you!
