Pet competition: Elle is named this year’s Pet Supermodel

Local veterinary surgery The Mewes Veterinary Clinic has crowned the winner of their recent competition to feature in their 2015 calendar.

Sheila Homewood is celebrating after winning £100 worth of pet food and having her dog Ella named as Sussex’s Best Pet Supermodel. Eleven runners up also won prizes and feature titles from Miss February to Mr December in the calendar.

Julia Mewes, Principal Vet at The Mewes Vets in Haywards Heath, announced all twelve winners - chosen from over 400 entries - of their photo competition at the practice’s fancy dress Christmas party last weekend.

The team at The Mewes Veterinary Centre have produced a calendar from the photo entries, which will be sold to raise funds for local group Roger’s Wildlife Rescue.

Roger’s Wildlife Rescue, based in Woodingdean, is an entirely voluntary organisation. The only funding they receive is from donations and subscriptions to ‘Roger’s World’, their monthly newsletter.

Roger cares for around 1,500 creatures each year and releases as many as possible back into the wild.
