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

3 October 2017

Date: 03 October 2017

Cat Haven in Shenton Park is holding its biggest fundraiser of the year ‘Wet Nose Day’ on Sunday 15 October from 10am to 3pm and they are hoping for their biggest turnout ever.

“Wet Nose Day is an open day at the shelter to meet all the Cat Haven cats, adopt a cat or two, grab a bargain and have some feline fun. There has been a notable decline in donations this year and we are really short of funds so we are hoping for a very successful day.” Chandra Woodley, Marketing Officer at Cat Haven explains.

This year’s Wet Nose Day offers all the same fun as past years; for just a gold coin entry fee, it is a great family day with face painters, plus plenty of good quality vintage and retro clothes, crafts, toys, plants and books to buy. There are external market stalls, raffles, prizes, silent auction, and lots of food including a sausage sizzle, coffee and fantastic home-made cakes.

“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.

“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 stray 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.
