GSDR Wins Wetnose Best Breed Specific Rescue 2013
On Monday 11th March, GSDR volunteers attended the Burgess Wetnose Animal Rescue Awards 2013 at the Jumeirah Carlton Hotel, Knightsbridge, London where we met some well known celebrities and were awarded best breed specific rescue together with a cheque for £1000 donated by Animal Friends insurance
Volunteers that attended the event were founder Jayne Shenstone together with co-ordinators/volunteers Damon and Mel Harris, Irene Culverwell, Mandi Wilkes and Donna Jones.
A fun packed afternoon with amazing animal stories of how strays and pets end up in our rescue centres and meeting the winners from all over the UK and Abroad.
The Awards is to highlight the hard working hero’s of the animal world, and to congratulate the smaller Rescue Centres and give them the recognition they truly deserve.
We had a wonderful afternoon mixing with the stars and some VIP four legged friends and had lots of photos taken.
