Pet friendly town

Working together to help make Melton a 'Pet friendly town'

Mars Petcare and Melton Borough Council are working together to help make Melton Mowbray the UK’s number one pet friendly town.

As part of our campaign, Melton Mowbray is entering the Dog Friendly Awards – a competition that looks to find the places in the UK most welcoming to dogs. The winner is chosen by public vote and will be announced on the 21st October.

You can watch what the pets have been up to here.

We have also launched a 'Paw-some scheme' to help local pet owners easily find pet friendly businesses where their animals are welcome. The scheme involves using a sticker to let people know they can bring their four-legged friends into a business and we’re also working to recognise pet friendly businesses in the Town Centre Guide.


We’ve listed a few reasons why being pet friendly is good for business, along with a few handy hints and tips on how to go about becoming pet friendly in the attached guide.

If you’re already a pet friendly business, or we’ve convinced you to become one, please email us the name and address of your business to sign-up to our scheme.
