Pet friendly town

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

We were so pleased to announce that Melton Mowbray was awarded "Pet Friendly Town" at the Dog Firendly awards in November 2017

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.
