On 1 September Wet Nose Animal Rescue Centre will celebrate Homeless Animals Day with a fun doggie pageant, which includes really goofy categories and awesome prizes, dog shows, live entertainment,  rehabilitation awards, stalls, food and a beer tent.

This year you can take your own dog along on the walk. The event has grown so much over the last few years that the rescue centre doesn’t have enough dogs for the number of people who want to do the walk. In the past some dogs had ended up excited but exhausted after being taken on three walks.

If you have a well-socialised dog that you want to bring along to the fun day, there are two options: a 1.2 km or a 4.8 km walk. Puppies under six months old cannot take part; their immunities are not yet ready to be exposed to hundreds of other dogs.

Wet Nose needs help for the day, so if you can volunteer your time or donate sausages, buns or old fiction books, contact Yvette at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it . There are also still a few stalls available.


Help abandoned animals on Homeless Animals Day

Homeless Animals Day is Wet Nose’s biggest fund raiser of the year and all the proceeds will be put towards the building of the new Wet Nose Animal Hospital. In The Bronberger’s July edition we told you about the new hospital. Since then, the plans have been finalised and quotes have been obtained.

Donations so far have been the building plans, 10 000 bricks, a solar heating system, a geyser, a quantity surveyor and cupboards.

If you are in the building industry and can help them out with donations or good discounts, please contact Wet Nose. If you are not, a bag of cement will be welcome, and you can also support the centre by making use of Dr Nelene, their resident vet.
