Pet friendly town

Melton Mowbray was 2017's no. 1 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 in November 2017, that Melton Mowbray was named the most "Pet Friendly Town" at the Dog Friendly awards. The award was determined by public vote which makes this award extra special. We strongly believe in the mental and physical benefits that having a pet can bring, and it's fantastic knowing that the residents of Melton Mowbray see their town as place where this idea is cultivated.

Find pet friendly businesses

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.
