ANIMAL lovers in Worcestershire are being invited to take part in a Halloween pet show to help raise money for the RSPCA.
The RSPCA Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire branch is calling for animal owners to show off the Halloween side of their pets by attending the charity’s first Halloween Home Pet Show.
All the proceeds from ticket sales will be used to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome animals in need.
The virtual pet show has been organised to get pet lovers together online to celebrate Halloween and give them the chance to showcase pets of all varieties.
The event will also help the charity to raise much needed funds to continue helping animals in need. Entry for this competition begins on Thursday, October 1 and will close Monday, October 26 at 11.30pm.
The winners will be announced on Saturday, October 31 to celebrate Halloween on the RSPCA Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire Facebook page.
In accordance with the charity’s animal welfare policy, participants are requested to avoid using costumes on their pets to minimise distress.
Filters, special effects and animations of the photos and videos are allowed.
Pamela Booker, branch secretary at RSPCA Worcester and Mid-Worcestershire, said: “As the charity continues to work to avoid large gatherings and support social distancing, we are constantly looking at new, fun and safe ways to engage with the public and raise funds to take care of animals that have been abandoned, abused, neglected, injured or whose owners’ can no longer take care of them.
“By moving online with our Home Pet Show, we can not only do that, but also now involve many pet owners who couldn’t bring their animals to the show, increasing the diversity of animals entering the competition.”
To take part, buy a £2 ticket (one ticket per entry) at https://ticketlab.co.uk/event/id/5428
Alternatively, you can share your photos and videos via Facebook, Instagram or email: email@example.com.
Messages must include your pet’s name, your name and contact details and, if you wish, a paragraph about your pet.
