On this week’s House of Fun with Karin Ridgers we were talking about Wetnose Day with Wetnose Animal Aid  Co Founder Andrea Gamby-Boulger, Wildlife TV Presenter Anneka Svenska and TV personality Karen Chamberlain.


Musician and environmental campaigner, Sir Paul McCartney has released a new picture of him “Posing with his Nose” in aid of Wetnose Day – along with much loved actor and dog lover Tom Hardy. 

Wetnose Day will be taking place across the UK on September 29th – October 1st 2017 to help promote the issue of animal welfare and to 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 over £100,000 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 said,

“I was delighted to hear Sir Paul McCartney wanted to support Wetnose Day and pose with his nose!

Over the last few years Wetnose has been delighted to have fabulous endorsements and support from leading celebrity and animal campaigners including Paul O’Grady, Amanda Holden, Brian May and many, many more.

Frontline Plus, the flea and tick treatment providers and main sponsors of Wetnose Day stated “Animal welfare is at the core of our business, so we are delighted to endorse, alongside Sir Paul McCartney, Wetnose Day. 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.”

Nathan Flatman from Animed Direct, the UK’s leading online animal pharmacy, stated “We are delighted to be supporting Andrea and her team in promoting Wetnose Day, raising the issues of animal welfare awareness and pet ownership. As pet owners ourselves, who serve thousands of pet customers every day, this campaign is essential and we urge everyone to pose with their nose!”
