Visitors See Behind the Scenes at Wingletang Open Day
To celebrate our 50th anniversary of care for rescue animals, our centre in Devon opened up its gates for a special Open Day on Sunday 19th July.
Guests and visitors came to the centre and enjoyed refreshments provided by Westmoor Veterinary Hospital and cakes donated by supporters.
Alan Ging, joint manager at the centre, led tours around the kennels and cattery, while explaining how the centre works. Thanks to the extra visitors on the day, two of the rescue dogs and one rescue kitten were reserved by people who attended the open day.
Dog trainer Gill Devereux led training demonstrations throughout the day as staff handled the rescue dogs currently in our care. This gave us a chance to show the public what valuable work we do to enrich the lives of the dogs that come into our centre.
We also offered free micro chipping for dogs on the day and chipped almost 20 dogs. It will become a legal requirement to have your dog micro chipped by April 2016 so it is important to us that we are able to help as many people as possible to get their dogs chipped in time.
We would like to thank everyone who came along for our Open Day and a special thank you to Gill Devereux, Westmoor Veterinary Hospital and Kaisa Viljarand for these beautiful photographs.
