Wet Nose Day at Cat Haven – A Family Fun Day for the Felines of Perth

6 October 2016

Cat Haven in Shenton Park is holding its biggest fundraiser of the year ‘Wet Nose Day’ on Sunday 16 October from 10am to 3pm and this year it’ll be a nice cool day for the cats.

 “Wet Nose Day is a chance to meet all the Cat Haven cats, adopt a cat or two, have some fun and help raise funds. This year’s Wet Nose Day is being held a month earlier than usual to ensure that cat fans are kept cool at the fete. There are plenty of market stalls, raffles, prizes, auctions, and lots of food including a sausage sizzle, coffee and fantastic home-made cakes. It’s a real family day out with face painters, plus lots of quality vintage and retro clothes, crafts, toys, plants and books to buy.” Chandra Woodley, Marketing Officer at Cat Haven explains.

 “All items at the open day are priced to go on the day, so it’s a great day for bargain hunters and Christmas shoppers alike, or you can donate by buying a cat a wet dinner or blanket at our Christmas Giving Tree.” Chandra Woodley said.

“Wet Nose Day is our annual open day to raise funds for the cats at Cat Haven. We need the most funding at this time of year as Kitten Season is about to start and we will soon see a steady flow of hundreds of unwanted kittens through our doors every week.” Cat Haven’s Marketing Officer Chandra Woodley said.

Cat Haven received over 6500 unwanted cats last year and it aims to rehome as many as possible to loving homes. It costs over $28 a day to keep a cat at the shelter and they rely entirely on donations, volunteers, sponsors, Wills and memberships to help cover this cost.

All Cat Haven cats are sterilised, microchipped, treated for fleas and worms, and health checked.
