13:00 - 29 October 2018
A new scheme has launched in the UK, that is all about honoring animals, rather than people.
The ‘Pet Plaques’ scheme takes inspiration from the English Heritage blue plaques that have recognized people for over 150 years and turns the attention fully onto our furry friends. Aiming to highlight the many amazing things animals do and have done over the years.
Just over 20 green plaques (complete with pointy pet ears) have been placed around the UK so far, with pets including Flora, a life-saving dog that predicts its owner’s oncoming blackouts, Smudge a bully fighting cat and Walnut, the dog most will remember for its final beach walk.
