The Big Pet Census 2024

We’re asking the nation to take part in our latest Big Pet Census.

Take part in our Pet Census

Our pets are often a favourite topic of conversation, so this is a fantastic chance to share your pet’s story and celebrate what makes them so special. What you tell us will help our teams get even better at caring for the pets who mean so much to us all.

As an animal welfare charity that’s been helping sick and injured pets for over 125 years, Blue Cross always enjoys hearing about the nation’s pets and the people who love them. Two years ago, we were delighted to hear from people in every corner of the UK in our first Big Pet Census. And now we’re excited to run another census, to see how our lives with pets have changed


The Big Pet Census 2024

Wherever you live in the UK, join in the fun of the Big Pet Census and have your say. Perhaps we’ll find out if dogs in Derbyshire sleep on the bed, or if cats in Carmarthen get their own birthday cake. Maybe people in Hampshire love talking to their horses. With your help, it could be our biggest Census yet!

The Census should take around 10 minutes and, to say thank you, you’ll have the option to enter a prize draw to win one of three £50 Amazon vouchers, kindly donated by Petplan.
