“I hope you are well. It’s Karin Ridgers here – I am an ambassador for Wetnose Animal Aid and Wetnose Day. I am reaching out to you as we would love you to support our special day so we can help even more animals. If you would like to “Pose with a Nose” please click here – and we would love to see a photo!”



Wetnose Day will be taking place across the UK on 20th 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,… 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 told VeggieVision TV; “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 helped 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 companion animals.

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”, says Andrea. 

Fundraisers across the country are now lined up to bungee jump, host sponsored dog walks, hold cake sales and wear our legendary Wetnoses to raise much needed funds for this wonderful UK organisation.

Fact: Shocking figures show over 85,050 stray dogs were handed by Authorities in 2017.

Fact: Hedgehogs are now declining in the UK at the same rate as tigers; globally that’s 5% a year, both in rural and urban habitats. 

Fact: In 2016 approximately 11m (40%) of households have pets, that means the pet population now stands at around 57 million (PFMA commission)

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.
