The Winner
One winner will be selected at random from qualifying entries. The Winner will be contacted by The Promotor via DM/Message/Email/Comment to confirm their eligibility to receive the prize. Should no response be received from The Winner within 5 days, a new winner will be selected. This process continues until a winner with confirmed eligibility is identified.

The Winner also gives their rights for their competition entry to be publicised on The Promotor’s social media channels and website, plus other media requirements.

*The Winner also receives a year’s supply of Butcher’s food for one dog. The quantity of which is to be confirmed by The Promotor depending on the size and breed of dog.

Winners are given a choice of Butcher’s dog food recipe that is most appropriate for its dog to trial for one month. Should this be agreeable, The Promotor will continue to send a month’s supply of the chosen food to The Winner each month until the 12-month period is reached.

The Promotor reserves the right to change this process to equivalent vouchers depending on stock levels or other affecting factors.


#NourishEveryDog Pledge
The Promotor will donate one meal to selected charities nationwide for every use of the hashtag #NourishEveryDog on qualifying competition entries. This is in conjunction with The Promotor’s Nourish Every Dog campaign pledge to donate 1 million meals to less-fortunate dogs in 2019.

Each ‘donation’ per social media post containing the #NourishEveryDog hashtag equals one meal, which is the equivalent of 1x 150g Foil Tray or 1x 390g / 400g Can.

Total donations from social media posts will not exceed 1,000,000 (1 million) meals.

The Promotion/Campaign/Competition is free to enter and no purchase of any kind is necessary.

The #NourishEveryDog campaign will end once 1 million hashtag mentions have been reached. Should this occur before The Competition end date, entries will still be eligible to win The Prize, but no more than 1million meals will be donated.

The Promoter reserves the right to suspend, cancel or amend the Promotion/Campaign/Competition and/or review and revise these Terms and Conditions at any time without giving prior notice. By continuing to take part in the Promotion/Campaign/Competition subsequent to any revision of these Terms and Conditions, entrants shall be deemed to have agreed to any such new or amended terms.

Entries made by anyone found to be using multiple social media accounts on the same network for the purposes of entering the Promotion/Campaign shall be ineligible.

The number of meals donated to charities will be available by sending a correctly stamped envelope/postcard addressed to Butchers Pet Care, Dockham Way, Crick, NN6 7TZ.
