Photographic fun for young people

MEMBERS OF PDSA's young people's club - Pet Protectors - can take part in a cute pet/animal photographic competition being featured in the October issue of club magazine Animal Antics.

The winner of the competition will win an electronic Gizmo, the friendly gremlin: "Members of the Pet Protectors club love animals, so I'm sure this competition will be very popular", says Donna French, Pet Protector club organiser.

The Pet Protectors club encourages youngsters to learn about responsible pet ownership in a friendly and fun way.

Club magazine Animal Antics is issued every two months and is filled with creature features, pet care tips, president's news, postbag and details of special Pet Protectors.

Membership fees start from 5.00 for individuals. Family and group memberships are also available. The membership pack consists of a membership badge, personalised membership card and regular copies of Animal Antics. Those members who join before the end of November will receive a free 'Stripey' cuddly toy.

PDSA - the veterinary charity - carried out 1.3 million free treatments on sick and injured pets last year alone. In 2000, PDSA's PetAid services cost a staggering 25.7 million, funded entirely by public support through donations and legacies.
