VOTE FOR MELOTN MOWBRAY AND BE DOG FRIENDLY! THE DOGS AND CATS OF MELTON MOWBRAY LEAD AWARDS CAMPAIGN!

10/20/2017

There’s only a few weeks to go before The Be Dog Friendly award closes, and the pets of Melton Mowbray encourage you to vote! Led by Barney Woof MP (Master of Pets), the dogs and cats of Melton provide an exclusive first look at the competitive campaign trail. Bombarded with questions from a local reporter on how pets improve education and the value that they add to the community – the animals show that you’d have to be barking mad not to vote for the town!

The entry is the next step in Melton Borough Council and Mars Petcare’s bid to make Melton Mowbray the UK’s number one pet friendly town! It follows a recent study revealing that the benefits of pets are endless. From reducing the use of the NHS to the value of £2.45 billion per year to boosting emotional wellbeing, we know that it’s not just the unconditional love and companionship they offer, but that they also help to make us happier, healthier and the economy stronger.

Have your say and vote for Melton Mowbray here! You can also watch the campaign video on YouTube.
