Picture by National Pet Month
National Pet month has been running for 25 years now and is getting stronger every year. Their aim is to promote responsible pet ownership, to increase awareness of the plight of some of the nations animals, and to help raise cash for animal charities all over the UK.

Indie YA Books launches its first Photo Competition!
In honour of National Pet Month in the UK, and also in the USA in May, myself and my colleagues at IndieYAbooks.com decided to hold a 'Selfie' photo competition. We know that you love your animals just as much as we do, and we wanted to give you a chance to show them off! Whether you have a massive shaggy dog, a rat, or even a spider, we don't care! If they are yours, or a member of your families, we want to see them! Grab your camera, and your lovely pet and get clicking!
The best of luck to all of you, and all the love in the world to you and your pets!
