What is StarPet and how does it work?

We know your beloved pet is the centre of your universe, so this is their time to shine! Grab your camera (or phone) and enter your beloved pet in to StarPet South Africa’s monthly photo competition for a chance to win your share of R22 500, including R17 000 in Absolute Pets vouchers!

To enter, visit the StarPets South Africa website, complete the entry form and upload your favourite image of your beloved pet. It’s that easy!

Best of all, you and your beloved pet will be spreading a little joy of your own by helping StarPet South Africa give back to animal welfare at the same time. That’s because 50% of the profit generated from public votes goes to animal welfare. Plus, the People’s Choice winner gets to choose the animal welfare organisation that receives the donation!

How to vote in the StarPet competition

Once you’ve completed the entry requirements, ask friends and family to vote for your pet’s photo via SMS, Snapscan and/or Ozow Instant EFT. They can vote as many times as they wish. For more information on voting bundles, click here. The three pet photos with the most votes at the end of the current month will win 1 of 3 People’s Choice prizes.

Prizes up for grabs

A total of seven prizes to the value of R22 500 are up for grabs every month with StarPet South Africa, which are awarded in the form of Absolute Pets shopping vouchers and cash prizes.

There are three categories of winners for competition entrants: People’s Choice, Angel’s Choice and StarPet Pick of the month.

Each category’s prize values are as follows:

People’s Choice winners
