Wetnose Day will be taking place across the UK in September 2019 to help educate and promote the issues of animal welfare as well as 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 funds 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 one of our legendary NOSES!
Over the last few years Wetnose has been thrilled to have fabulous endorsements and support from leading celebrity and animal campaigners including Paul O’Grady, Amanda Holden, Ricky Gervais, David Essex and 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 properly and some pets are discarded like clothes in our throw away society,
which is having a big impact on our Rescue Centres. Wetnose 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 or buying equipment. The knowledge and skills these animal teams have is phenomenal.
NOW, more than ever, is the time to help all animals in need”, says Andrea Gamby-Boulger. www.wetnoseanimalaid.com #wetnoseday

Kate was a racehorse who finished her racing career in 2015 after 113 races and 10 wins. She was then moved on to have 2 foals and was left with damage from her latest foal.
Kate was due to be put to sleep until we took her in. She had now had surgery to repair the damage and is happy and healthy running free.
