Past winners of Pet of the Month

When we announce the winners of our Pet of the Month competition each month we will share their photos here on our website as well as on our social platforms. We will also give them a star feature in the Reader's Digest magazine, however due to us working ahead on our print schedules they will only be seen in the magazine a couple of months later.
