2020 Virtual Fun Animal Show

Calling all pet owners to enter our 'Virtual Fun Animal Show'...

Our pets have been such a great comfort during lockdown and have helped spread joy during difficult times. Our animals are always there for us when we need them the most. If you'd like to give your furry friend a treat and help the Raystede rescue animals, why not enter your pet into our Virtual Fun Animal Show?

By entering your pet, you are helping us to care for the animals at Raystede that need us whilst we are closed. While Raystede is closed to visitors we are losing £1,000 every single day. We need your help more than ever to ensure we raise enough money to look after the 400 animals that are at our centre.

As it will be our last online animal show of the year, it is open to all creatures great and small. We are celebrating animals and pets of all sizes and are looking for the '2020 Pet Of The Year.'

To enter your pet, all you need to do is:

1. Click on THIS LINK to enter them into one of the below categories. After clicking on this link make sure you scroll right down to the bottom of the page and pick the category that you'd like to enter, putting the number of entries you'd like into the box before clicking continue.

2. Send your photos to Please make sure you put the category you're entering, into the 'Subject' box in the email. You can send one photo for each category. If you could send separate emails for each category you've entered into that would be great.

(Please note your photos may be shared with The Argus for them to publish.)

Our online Virtual Fun Animal Show will stay open until the 10th December 2020. All the entries will then be judged by some well known faces (we will be revealing who our judges are over the upcoming weeks) and there will be a winner and three runners up in each category.

All winners and runners up will receive a special Raystede rosette and a little goody bag. The winner of each category will also receive a rather special prize. For example, the winner of the the 'Best in Class- Cats' category, will receive this beautiful cat necklace, which has been kindly donated to us by Jana Reinhardt jewellery.

Each entrant will also automatically be entered into the '2020 Pet Of The Year' category.

It's £4 to enter your pet into one of the below categories:

Best in Class- Dogs

Best in Class- Cats

Best in Class- Chickens and Poultry (Hens, cockerels, turkeys, ducks, guinea fowl.)
