Alnorthumbria Veterinary group has announced the launch of a brand new charity campaign.
The first of its kind across the practice, the search to find ‘The Face of Alnorthumbria Pets 2015’ will be a region-wide photography competition with all proceeds going to local animal charities.
Sit Stay Capture, one of the most popular professional dog photographers in the north east, will be on hand to take photographs at various events throughout the year.
It’s only a £1 donation to enter and every single penny raised will be given to charities including Berwick Animal Rescue Kennels (BARK) and Red Squirrels Northern England.
Rebecca Ashworth, organising the event, said: “I’m extremely excited to be involved in this competition and, looking at the prizes, I wish I could enter my own pet!
“I’m looking forward to meeting lots of pets from around the north east and with entries already in, I’m very glad not to be judging! We are hoping to raise as much money as possible, and with the competition open to all, we really want to see everyone getting involved.
“You can see Alnorthumbria Vets at their stand at Glendale Show on August 25 and enter on the day, where they will also have goody bags for the first 100 dogs to enter.”
Prizes include everything from dog grooming to day care, photoshoots to pet portraits, treats and toys to hampers of goodies. Winning pets will also feature on some of the Alnorthumbria 2015 literature.
Paul Freeman, small animal director of Alnorthumbria Vets, said: “We are enormously grateful to all the companies that have rallied to donate prizes and sponsorship and hope it will act as a great incentive for people to enter their pets.
“With photoshoots arranged at all our surgeries we are hoping to see lots of dogs, cats, rabbits and even those with more exotic pets that aren’t camera shy. The more money we can raise, the more animals in need we can help.”
A full list of sponsors and prizes can be found online alongside details on your nearest event and how you can get involved.
