Animals can do things that make us laugh until our sides split. Show us your pet doing something hilarious, making a silly face or just being their goofy self.

Show us your best friend’s best friend! (2 or more animals must be included in the photo)

Whether their fur is turning grey or they still have bursts of inner puppy/kitten, we love to celebrate our seniors! Open to 7+ year olds. Please include their age.

🌈 Gone But Not Forgotten
Alternative prize – virtual memory tree leaf in honour of your pet.
This special category is for your beloved furry friends who have crossed the rainbow bridge. If your picture wins our top prize, the Home will donate a Virtual Memory Leaf in their honour.

Does your pet have the best eyes? Whether they use them to beg for another breakfast or to communicate their love, we want to see them!
