Help raise money for K9 

Are you doing anything on Saturday 1st June between 3pm – 7pm? If not, why not come down to our latest fundraiser and help us raise money for K9.

The Wigan Pier have kindly agreed to let us come down for the afternoon and have also got a few acts lined up for the afternoon. If you have never been to one of our fundraisers, why not come down and support us! You are guaranteed to have a lot of fun and meet some new people also.
There is a lot of enter-tainment planned such as live acts, a raffle, a tombola and other activities. The live acts confirmed to perform on the day are Lisa Cowley, Carol Slater, Carol Singer, Christo-pher James and Ann Marie Dorrity. We, at K9 are so grateful to them and to the Wigan Pier for giving us this opportunity to raise awareness about K9, but also to raise money for our puppy Reina, who flew to Sweden a couple months ago. For those that do not know the story of Reina, she was a young puppy who was flying to Sweden with her new forever family. Arriving in Sweden turned into a nightmare as her chip could not be read, even though it had been put in by a vet and checked. Things were not looking good for her. We were given different options to try and rectify the situation such as sending her back to Tenerife, putting her in quarantine or putting her to sleep, which of course we were not going to let happen. We choose to put her into quarantine, but this came at an expensive cost and we are currently holding fundraisers to pay this expensive bill. Reina spent 21 days in quarantine in Sweden and was happily reunited with her new family at the end of April. The cost of Reina being kept in quarantine was over €2,500 but worth every cent, if it meant that Reina could stay in Sweden and also be reunited with her new family. Now, we need to raise he money for the bill, which is why this fundraiser came about.
Please come along and support us on the 1st June from 3pm. We would be so appreciative for any support you can give.
