ManyPets supports pet parents in the community

ManyPets is a pet insurance provider that covers 400,000 pets in the UK. Our Complete policy offers up to £15,000 of vet fee cover and boasts a MoneyBack add-on, that gives back some of your premium if you don't make a claim in a policy year.

Cat and dog owners love what we're doing! We were named Pet Insurance Provider of the Year two years in a row at the 2021-2022 Moneyfacts Consumer Awards. We're known for putting pets, their health and happiness first.

In 2022, ManyPets is aiming to help pet parents again, by rounding up the spare stuff our pets don't want or need, and giving it back to pets in the community.

Pets generate an incredible amount of spare stuff — from food they love one minute but hate the next, to a new bed they absolutely refuse to sleep in, to discarded toys. At ManyPets, we believe none of it should go to waste — particularly at a time of rising costs and squeezed budgets.

We put our heads together with OLIO, the free community sharing app, and together, we created Pets Pass It On. It's an idea that makes pet ownership more accessible and affordable for everyone.

Help us do amazing things for the pet-loving community. Sign up for Pets Pass It On.


Sharing is caring

Pets Pass It On is the biggest pet paraphernalia spare share ever, designed to make pet ownership more accessible and sustainable for pet parents around the UK.

We're aiming to get thousands of items listed, so other pet parents can collect them for free.

OLIO has more than six million neighbours using its app, giving away food, household goods and now, pet supplies! Join in and you'll feel good sharing your spares at a time when household budgets are squeezed. Even better, your pet will be spoilt for choice!

It's time to treat the pets in your community. Here's how to get started, make your first listing, and browse items near you.

How to start sharing

  1. Using your phone, download and open the OLIO sharing app. You'll be taken to your app store, where you download OLIO and register for an account.

  2. List any spare pet items you have. It could be food that is still in date, toys, poo bags or whatever you have that you no longer need.

  3. Pet parents interested in your items request them and come and pick them up from you at a convenient time.

  4. Do you need something for your pet? Search for items in your area using the app

What items can I share?

The OLIO app splits listings into two categories, 'food', and 'non-food'. So long as it's new, there is no limit to the types of pet items you can list. Dig around your house and find goods, goodies and perfect pet plunder for the fur babies in your community:

  • Leftover bags and tins of unopened food and treats

  • Unused toys, teddies and chews

  • Beds, fleecy soft bedding, snuggly igloos and scratching trees

  • Grooming gear like brushes, combs, shampoo, conditioner and tangle spray

  • Unworn pet clothing and fashion accessories

  • Poo bags and scoopers

  • Leads - adjustable, retractable, hands-free, or long line!

Millions of items to browse

Hooray! Your pet supplies were snapped up by OLIO's pet parents. You've made a pet's day and feel fantastic for it!

There are plenty of pet treasures in your community just waiting to be discovered. OLIOers shared nearly a million items in September and October 2022, so you're bound to find some treasures your pet pal will love. Go on, surprise them!

The best start in life, for a fraction of the cost

You want to give a new puppy or kitten the best of everything right from the very beginning, but it's so expensive to shop around and narrow down their favourites.

Pets Pass It On is the easy, economical way to get to know their likes and dislikes:

  • Find their groove: Pets Pass It On gives you an affordable way to trial and error premium products, without breaking the bank.

  • A world of choice: Pet parents of all breeds and ages can use Pets Pass It On. You won't be short of options to browse and snap up.

  • New diets and picky eating: Getting your pet to settle on food is tricky. It’s expensive and sometimes you can end up with spare bags that you can’t do much with. Pets Pass It On rescues spare meals and gives your surplus a home.

  • Play to their preferences: While you're figuring out which toys your puppy will favour over time, experiment with immaculate plushies, tug toys and flip boards. And, if your new toys get no attention, share them with another pet owner near you.

Rescue and redistribute with OLIO

On OLIO, you'll find millions of people giving away food & other household items to their neighbours, all for free. Sign up to fight waste and help your neighbours.
