Bath and Frome Pet Shop has been judged the best National Pet Month event in 2009, as over 450 events were held during National Pet Month this year. This made the 2009 Month the most successful ever.
The three-times past winner of ‘best pet shop event’ secured the top position with fantastic open days in each of the business’ three stores.
National Pet Month encouraged pet lovers, vets, charities and pet businesses to host a variety of events across the nation between 4 April and 4 May, and National Pet Month chairman Phil Sketchley was delighted with the response:
“National Pet Month has again proved an excellent way to highlight how we can help keep pets healthy and happy. From open days, to competitions, and from school visits through to collaborative events, event holders have shown real creativity and dedication.
In the current economic climate, where people are looking to save money, these events not only provide a chance for people to have fun with their pets, they also remind people it’s a false economy to cut corners with pet health care,” he added.
Once more, press interest was great, with over 45 million people having the chance to read about National Pet Month.
National Pet Month also allowed funds to be raised for animal charities across the country, some large, some small.
‘We already know around £13,000 has been raised so far, split between over 30 animal charities, and there’s much more to be declared. The great thing about National Pet Month is that smaller charities as well as the household names can benefit’
said Phil Sketchley.
“We look forward to working with pet lovers again in 2010 – National Pet Month will run from 3 April – 3 May”he added.
