To encourage students to register unusual pets, The Earth Watch Club initiated the UPC (Unique Pet Certification). Under this initiative, all of the registered animals, which were unique on the show, were awarded with the honorary certificates.

The “My Pet Story” competition was also held before the Pet Show. In this competition, students and alumnus submitted their stories related to their pets on the Facebook page of Earth Watch Club. The winners were selected on the basis of most likes. Medals for the story competition were distributed among the winners in the prize distribution ceremony of the Pet Show. The Team Earth Watch Club also arranged food courts for visitors and participants.
