Saturday 20th February 2021 is National Love Your Pet Day, a great day to show some love to our four-legged furry friends.

Whether you’re a cat lover, dog lover, rabbit lover or general animal lover, this day is another excuse to spoil them even more than you normally do and show them how much they mean to you!

Of course in our opinion, every day should be love your pet day! We have many fantastic corporate partners who offer a range of brilliant ways to treat your four legged friend, not only for this day but all year round. Read on for some great ideas that your pet will love you for…

You can discover a pawsome range of drinkable treats from WOOF&BREW, who offer veterinary-approved herbal supplements, teas and more. For example, there's Posh Pooch Still 'Wine' for dogs and cats, and Bottom Sniffer 'beer' for dogs! WOOF&BREW offer NAWT supporters 10% discount on orders using the 'NAWT' coupon code at checkout, and will also make a donation to NAWT on every order you place.

If you want to get your pet some nice toys, you should definitely check out Beco Pets. On their website you will find wonderful soft toys, natural rubber chew toys, and hemp rope toys. Beco have kindly donated eco-friendly poop bags to all five of our centres recently, which is enabling NAWT to help the environment! 

Another lovely thing to do for your pet is to invest in their health with the Pawfit 2 location and activity tracker. This lets you monitor their activity (e.g. steps, distance covered, calories burned and active and rest hours, all personalised for your pet’s breed, age and weight). Pawfit are kindly offering NAWT supporters a 10% discount when you purchase either a Pawfit 2, or a Pawfit 2 with a 1-year subscription (to cover for the data usage of the embedded SIM) and use the ‘NAWT10’ discount code at checkout. They will also be making a 10% donation to NAWT every time that discount code is applied.

What better way to show you love your pet than to commission a portrait painting of your furry friend. Our partner Scott Mitchell specialises in creating highly realistic oil paintings of pets. Scott will very kindly be making a donation on each portrait commission he receives through NAWT and on all paintings purchased by NAWT supporters from his website (excluding gallery sales). If you’d like to commission a portrait or purchase a painting, please contact Scott using his website and let him know you’re a NAWT supporter!

You could also indulge your lucky friend by taking them on a luxury staycation! Luxury Cottages provide a great selection of dog-friendly properties throughout the UK, from beautifully designed barn conversions to magnificent manor houses. So you can look forward to taking them on long walks in the countryside, or treating them to a splashy day at the beach. Luxury Cottages are kindly offering NAWT supporters a 5% discount off any property during January to May, and September to November by using the ‘NAWT5’ discount code. They will also be making a donation to NAWT of £25 on every booking where that discount code is applied. 

If you love pets but don’t actually own any at the moment, there are many ways you can still get involved:

  • Making a donation to NAWT and reminding homeless animals, who are waiting patiently for the NAWT centres to re-open during the Coronavirus pandemic, that they are loved.
  • Treating one of our animals to an item from our Amazon Wish List. Choose from beds, scratching posts, toys, and more!
  • Sponsor an animal - you’ll receive a welcome letter, a sponsorship certificate, and two editions of our supporter magazine, ‘Animate’, per year.

Whatever way you decide to spend National Love Your Pet Day this year, we hope you have a safe and enjoyable time with each other!
