Competition

Win £250 worth of pet supplies with The Real Pet Detective


20 years ago former policeman Tom Watkins decided he wanted to help reunite people with their missing pets and so he founded Animal Search UK.

The Real Pet Detective follows Tom on his journey, telling the stories of missing pets and their owners along the way. From recording the owner's voice to lure cats from their hiding place, to organising a fly-over to raise the profile of missing Toby the terrier, from emptying the contents of the owner's vacuum to tempt in the missing animal with the scent, to organising a Crimewatch-style reconstruction of a dog-snatching on national TV, Tom will do whatever it takes to get the nation's pets home, safe and sound.

To celebrate the book’s publication, we’ve partnered with TrumPetShop and are giving away £250 to spend on their website. Simply tell us a story or send us a picture of a weird place you’ve found your pet, funny items your pet has found you or anything else that made you laugh. As long as it’s all about your pet, we’re happy.
