Pets mean prizes...

Have your say

Leading housebuilder Taylor Wimpey is inviting pet owners to submit their favourite photos into a nationwide competition to find the purr-fect pet picture.

Following the success of last year’s Pets Make A Home competition, Taylor Wimpey is again giving pet owners the chance to enter a photograph of their animal friend looking its best ‘at home’.

The housebuilder wants to see this year’s best pictures of cute cats, adorable dogs and gorgeous guinea pigs in their favourite place at home, whether they’re stretching out on the bed, curling up on the sofa, sunbathing on the windowsill – or enjoying a more unusual spot they’ve made their own.

The photo with the most votes each day during the competition will win a fabulous pet hamper, courtesy of Armitage Pet Care – while the photo with the most votes overall will win £500 of high street vouchers.

Britain is a nation of animal lovers and almost half the UK’s households have a pet. This year’s competition launched on September 7 and entries will be accepted until October 2.

A fantastic hamper of goodies to suit pets, courtesy of Armitage Pet Care, will be up for grabs for the daily winners, while the overall winner of the Pets Make A Home competition – to be announced on October 2 – will receive £500 of high street vouchers.

Fiona Creed, the regional sales and marketing director for Taylor Wimpey, says: ‘We were delighted with the success of last year’s Pets Make A Home competition, which left us in no doubt that pets really do make a house a home.

‘We saw some dashing dogs, cuddly kittens and beautiful birds, and heard some amazing stories about them too, so we can’t wait to see the pictures that pet owners submit this time round.’

Pet owners will be able to enter photos of their pet by visiting and entering their details via the specially created app.

Twitter and Instagram users can also enter by tweeting or posting their image via their own account with the hashtag #TWPetsMakeAHome.

Entrants will receive a response message thanking them for their entry as confirmation. Alternatively, pet owners can submit their image on the Taylor Wimpey Facebook page or by e-mailing

People can then visit the Taylor Wimpey website and Facebook page to view the entries and vote for their favourite pet.
