Events manager Grace Dibden said: “Since the global crisis, our amazing supporters have been with us every step of the way.

“They’ve raised more than £15,000 by taking on The Big Virtual Challenge, £1,100 from The Big Virtual Quiz and I am excited to reveal The Big Virtual Pet Show.

“We hope these events give you, our brilliant donors, a chance to enjoy and challenge yourself during these testing times.

“We cannot wait to see all of your amazing pet pictures.”

The photo in each class with the most likes will go through to the Best in Show and the winner will receive a trophy and pet shop voucher.

Participants can make multiple entries by making a donation for each category they enter.
