With subjects including a photo-bombing dog, a pair of dancing rats and more, this hilarious collection of pet photography just proves how funny and heart-warming our furry friends can be. 

This pet photography competition was created by Paul Joynson-Hicks and Tom Sullam to "celebrate the positive and vital role that pets can have in our lives and to encourage and raise awareness about animal welfare in general, by supporting a different grass roots charity each year".
