Has your dog protected you from a robbery? Has your cat helped you through a difficult time? Perhaps your goldfish scared off burglars?
If your pet has gone above and beyond and done something extraordinary then the time has come for them to be recognised for their heroic duties.
That’s why we’ve launched a competition to find the pet hero of the year!
With almost half (48%*) of victims who have been burgled feeling unsafe in their home, many people often find a level of security in their pets and it’s been known for our four-legged friends to stop and deter crime.
Nominations are open to all, dogs, cats, birds, reptiles, the list goes on! To nominate your heroic pet, head to www.safe.co.uk/pet-hero-2019 and upload a photo of them with the reason they deserve to win before the 2nd September, and you’ll be in with a chance of winning a smart indoor wi-fi camera, so you can keep an eye on your pet while you are out.
Anthony Neary, our managing director, said: “There’s no denying Britain is a nation of pet lovers and we know a lot of people find a sense of security in their pets. We believe there are some heroic pets out there and we want to make sure they get the recognition they deserve!
“Guard dogs come to the front of mind when we think of ‘heroic’ pets but we want to open this up to all. We are looking forward to finding our first ‘pet hero of the year’!”
The nominated pets will then go to a public vote before being presented to a judging panel. The winner will be announced in September 2019.
