Wetnose Day will be taking place across the UK on September 29th – October 1st 2017 to help promote the issue of animal welfare and to raise much needed funds to cover essential food and medical treatments for animals in desperate need in the UK.
Wetnose Day aims to encourage schools, workplaces, vets, groomers, dog clubs, riding schools, in fact everyone to pose with their nose and raise over £100,000 for dedicated rescue centres nationwide and the animals they care for.
Wetnose Day was established in 2000 by founders Andrea and Gavin Gamby-Boulger. Andrea said, “I was delighted to hear Sir Paul McCartney wanted to support Wetnose Day and pose with his nose!
“Over the last few years Wetnose has been delighted to have endorsements and support from leading celebrity and animal campaigners including Paul O’Grady, Amanda Holden, Brian May and many, many more.”
This has enabled us to raise thousands of pounds for small and medium sized animal sanctuaries, ensuring food costs were covered and veterinary treatment went ahead for animals in desperate need”.
“Society in general has, for a number of years, been under severe financial stress, which in turn has seen animal welfare suffer as some people may no longer be able to afford to look after their pets.
“Wetnose is plays its part in highlighting animal welfare in the UK and providing vital help and financial support for small animal welfare groups who are at the forefront of animal rescue and care in the UK”.
“Just think what a difference Wetnose Day could make to rescue centres across the UK, paying vets bills, buying several months of animal feed or helping with repairs to rescue centres across the UK.
“The knowledge and skills these animal rescue teams have is phenomenal. NOW, more than ever, is the time to help all animals in need.”
Frontline Plus, the flea and tick treatment providers and main sponsors of Wetnose Day stated “Animal welfare is at the core of our business, so we are delighted to endorse, alongside Sir Paul McCartney, Wetnose Day. The UK has hundreds, if not thousands of hard working volunteer rescue centres, and it’s essential their work is supported to ensure animals are cared for in the manner they deserve, namely with respect, love and compassion.”
Nathan Flatman from Animed Direct, the UK’s leading online animal pharmacy, stated “We are delighted to be supporting Andrea and her team in promoting Wetnose Day, raising the issues of animal welfare awareness and pet ownership. As pet owners ourselves, who serve thousands of pet customers every day, this campaign is essential and we urge everyone to pose with their nose!”
