Rescue Pet of the Year is back!


could your dog or cat be crowned the royal canin® rescue pet of the year?

The ROYAL CANIN® Rescue Pet of the Year competition is an annual competition that we run in support of all the Rescue animals and Rescue centres that do such amazing work looking after and re-homing them.

For the 2017 competition, we have listened to your feedback and have changed things a little.  We have opened up the competition to include a category for both Rescue Cats and Rescue Dogs.

The winning cat and dog* will win a selection of ROYAL CANIN® goodies and the Rescue Centre that rescued and rehomed the pet will receive a months supply of ROYAL CANIN® food to feed a maximum of 50 cats or dogs based on a 2kg bag of food per cat or a 4kg bag of food per dog per month from the ROYAL CANIN® Feline and Canine ranges. (*Terms and conditions apply).

Last year’s winner was Fergus who was rehomed by Second Chance Cat Rescue in Keelby after being cared for them for 6 months.  Fergus, originally a street cat,  now lives happily with his family in Healing and leads a very fulfilled life eating, sleeping and lying in the sun!




Thank you to those of you that entered your pet into our Rescue Pet of the Year 2017 Competition.  We have received hundreds entries and it is very hard shortlisting them, they all deserve to win!

Please bear with us whilst we complete the shortlisting process for those pets that will then go on to face the public vote to choose the overall winners (one cat and one dog).  This process unfortunately has been delayed due to the cyber attack that we were subjected to.  We hope to have the voting page live towards mid to end August.

*Terms and conditions:  The winning rescue pet will win a selection of ROYAL CANIN® gifts and the rescue centre that rehomed the pet will win a month’s supply of food  to feed a maximum of 50 cats or dogs*


At ROYAL CANIN® we work in partnership with Rescue Centres who want to share, promote and educate the benefits of tailored nutrition to the owners of their rehomed cats and dogs. If you would like to find out more about our Rescue Partnership, or are a Rescue Centre that would like to become a member, please get in touch with us by calling 0845 300 5965 (UK) or 1890 882 356 (Ireland) for more information.
