PET OWNERS are being encouraged to enter their much-loved pet in to the fourth annual Thompsons' Pet Show for a chance to win a year's supply of pet food.

The show, which is set to be bigger and better than previous years thanks to the introduction of new classes, will be held on Saturday, August 2 and will see animals from cats and dogs to rabbits and even miniature dragons entering in to the various classes.

Sarah Ivinson, commercial manager at Thompsons Country Store, based in Murton Lane opposite the York Auction Centre, said that staff members at the store were thrilled to be holding the pet show once again.

She said: "It's a really fun show for everybody and it really is a day out for all the family, giving them something to do over the summer holidays as well.

"We've focused a lot more on the fun element of things this year with lots of new classes as well as our traditional ones which always go down well."

Last year more than 400 people attended the Thompsons Pet Show with more than 130 entries for classes including the small animal contest, won by a lionhead rabbit, and the best exotic pet won be Koko the beard dragon.

Other classes in the show include the dog "most like their owner", best large dog as well as last year's new classes best rescue dog and best veteran dog.

Sarah said: "Last year the new classes were so hard to judge because everybody had a really powerful story about how they had rescued their dog or what he/she meant to the family. We always encourage people to share their stories though because they are really great to hear."

Winners in some classes will be able to grab the top prize of a year's supply of pet food.
