All proceeds will be used to suppawt shelter dogs during the festive season.

Picnic With Carols

Wetnose Animal Rescue Centre invite you to join them for a delightful picnic this joyous season. Bring your friends and family along for a magical evening under the stars, complete with Christmas carols and a special screening of The 12 Dogs Of Christmas. If you'd rather not make the trip at night, join them for a day of wagging tails and sloppy kisses while spoiling the shelter's animals before the Christmas rush hits.

Special Mention: Santa Cause For Paws Pledging

Santa Cause For Paws is an animal welfare organisation and online store that aims to make a difference in the lives of animals in shelters this Christmas. They plan to do this by collecting boxes of treats for puppies, kittens, cats and dogs and dropping them off at various shelters on Christmas Day. You can help by pledging to donate a box, containing 2 things yum, 1 thing warm, something fun and something useful. Or, you can offer out your workspace or home as a drop-off zone. Help put the wags back in the tails of unwanted and abandoned animals this Christmas.
