Welcome to My Marvellous Cats and Dogs Competition!

Could Your Marvellous Cat or Dog  Win The Nation’s Hearts? 

Is your cat or dog a marvellous companion? Are they an internet star in the making?
The Pumping Marvellous Foundation and The British Society for Heart Failure have partnered together in the run up to Heart Failure Awareness Day, on May 5th, to launch the My Marvellous Cat and Dog Competition! With the help of celebrity head judge Paul O’Grady MBE, our judging panel are scouring the UK to find the cutest, most characterful and heartwarming, feline and canine companions. We have delicious prizes on offer for the UK’s “Most Marvellous Cat, Most Marvellous Dog and Most Marvellous [Cat or Dog] Best Friend”.

Thanks to our sponsors at Natural Instinct, we are offering the chance to WIN a month’s supply of pet food as nature intended for one marvellous dog and one marvellous cat with a special hamper of pet treats for each as well. The best friend will win either a hamper for a cat or a dog with the winner also becoming the Pumping Marvellous Foundation’s mascot for 12 months!
