Do you think your pet is picture pawfect! Enter them into Birmingham St Mary's Hospice picture pawfect pet photo competition and see if they will be crowned the winner!

We love animals here at Birmingham St Mary’s Hospice and know how important pets are to their humans! We very much miss the wonderful animals that came into our Day Hospice and joined us on the Inpatient Unit like dogs, shetland ponies and skunks, all to provide a little animal therapy for our patients. Until we’re able to bring animal therapy back to the Hospice, we want to bring a big smile to our supporters’ faces and help raise vital funds for Birmingham St Mary’s with your pet photos!

How does the competition work?

How will I be making a difference to hospice care?

As restrictions continue to be tightened due to the Covid-19 pandemic, your support is needed now more than ever! Our fundraising campaigns/events continue to be cancelled or impacted to comply with government rules, however hospice care cannot be restricted and we need to continue to raise the £9 million needed a year to run our hospice services.

With over 64% of our funding coming from voluntary funds, you really do make a difference to individuals living with life-limiting illness across Birmingham and Sandwell. By taking part in the Picture Pawfect Pet Competition you can help people to continue to receive free care and support from our amazing doctors and nurses in the Hospice, in the community and within people’s homes – thank you.
