  • Can I vote for my own pet?

    Yes, you can vote for your own pet as many times as you wish. However, the point is not how many votes you can cast for your own pet, but to share your pet’s entry with others. The more time you spend spreading the message to friends, family, and colleagues, the more votes your pet is likely to receive. So, rather focus on getting your fur-kid’s Cute Pet profile out there via email, WhatsApp, and social media, etc.

    Cute Pet UK supports and encourages responsible voting.

  • How do I find my pet’s photo?

    To find your pet’s photo on the Cute Pet UK website you can either:

    Select your pet’s name.

    Please note: Vote totals are updated every 12 hours. You will only be able to view your own pet’s total votes.

  • How does the Cute-Vote-O-Meter™ work?

    Every month we set the criteria for the Cute Vote-O-Meter™. Each level of the Cute Vote-O-Meter™ is shaded-in based on the number of votes obtained for that level. As you progress the harder it becomes to reach the next level, just to make things more fun.

    For example; you may only need one (1) vote to make it to the first level, but ten (10) votes to reach the second level, and fifty (50) votes to reach the third level, and so on. Do not expect to see a change in your Cute Vote-O-Meter™ reading every time you vote.

    Please Note: the Cute Vote-O-Meter™ is not the deciding factor when selecting the TOP 3 Cute Pet UK winners. And if all the blocks of your Cute Vote-O-Meter™ are completely shaded-in, it does not mean that your pet is a winner or even in the Top 3. It just means that your pet is doing well in the voting stakes.

    The TOP 3 Cute Pet UK winners are chosen based on the number of votes each has received during the entire month. The three (3) pets with the most votes at the end of the month are the TOP 3 Cute Pet UK winners.

    Please note: The Cute Vote-O-Meter™ is updated every 12 hours. Due to routine system maintenance and upgrades, you may be unable to view your Cute Vote-O-Meter™ from time to time.

  • How do the elimination rounds work?

    The Cute Pet UK competition includes two (2) eliminations rounds. We will inform you via email and SMS as to when these elimination rounds will be held. We also set voting criteria for each elimination round. For example, in the first elimination round we may eliminate pets with less than five (5) votes.

    Entrants will be notified via email and SMS if their pet has made the elimination round or not, usually by 2pm on the day of the elimination. We suggest that you as well as your friends, family, and connections not to cast votes on the elimination day, until you have been notified about whether your pet has made it through or not.

    If your pet makes it through the first elimination round, all the votes they’ve gathered up until that point are carried through to the next round. It is entirely up to you if you wish to continue voting or not.

    If your pet doesn’t make it through the first or second elimination rounds (sorry about that, better luck next time), we will remove their picture from the Cute Pet UK site on the day of their elimination. In this case, please don’t continue to vote for your pet or encourage others to vote for your pet as these votes will not be counted. However, you may enter the following month’s competition if you wish.

  • When do you announce the winners?

    The Top 3 winners of each month’s Cute Pet UK competition are announced on the fifth (5th) day of the following month or on the next working day if the fifth (5th) day falls on a weekend or a bank holiday. The Top 3 winners will be announced by 2pm on the day. The announcement will be broadcast on our Cute Pet UK winners page and via our Facebook page.

    Cute Pet UK will also contact the Top 3 winners directly via phone or email within 24 hours of the announcement.

  • I have won a prize. When will I receive it?

    If you have won a prize, congratulations, we will notify you via phone or email. Prizes will be paid into your verified UK bank account within five (5) to ten (10) working days of your being notified and once your paperwork has been received.

    Please note: Cash prizes will be paid into a UK bank accounts only. Proof of your identity and the validity of your bank account are required before the release of any cash prize.

    If you have won an online voucher or eGift, please be sure to check your spam folder.

    If you don’t receive your prize within this time frame, please contact us.

  • Why don’t you use a panel of judges to decide the Cute Pet UK winner?

    Cute Pet UK is a monthly interactive competition rather than a subjective one. We feel that a panel of judges would be subjective when deciding the monthly winners. We prefer our monthly competition to be fun, interactive, and entertaining.

  • Is Cute Pet UK a scam?

    Cute Pet UK is most definitely not a scam. Entry is free and you don’t have to vote if you don’t wish to. We respect that and always strive to be transparent and upfront by giving you access to your pet’s voting data. However, in the interests of protecting you and your pet’s privacy, we don’t make your pet’s voting information public.

    There is no way to rig the Cute Pet UK competition and if we do discover that any of our participants is acting in an unlawful manner or acting against our competition terms, his/her pet’s entry will be immediately nullified, and he/she will be banned from the competition.

    Cute Pet SA has been showcasing South Africa's cutest pets since 2016.

  • Why don’t you use a Facebook voting system?

    We believe using a Facebook voting system would open us and our monthly Cute Pet UK participants up to increased abuse and limit our ability to manage votes fairly. Unfortunately, it is common for people to open fake or ‘dummy’ Facebook accounts and use these to solicit or purchase votes. For now, we will only use Facebook to communicate with current and future participants.

  • How do I remove my pet from the competition?

    To remove your pet from the Cute Pet UK competition please log in to your dashboard. Click on the 3 dots on the pet you wish to remove. Select 'Delete'. Your pet will be removed from the competition.

    Alternatively contact us via our contact page. We will endeavour to remove your pet’s entry and data from our database within 24 – 48 hours of your request.
