AFTER visiting K9 Animal Rescue on an excursion and the 40 or so dogs waiting for adoption, Mandurah Baptist College Year 7-12 students made a pledge to help and hosted a fundraising day.

For weeks leading up to the fundraiser, students visited all classes to talk about K9 and Year 11 students created a video played at assembly after which students began taking in food, toys, treats, blankets, grooming equipment and other items.

Staff also got involved donating homemade dog biscuits, wooden treat dispensers and sports balls.

On the day, there was a dog drawing competition, K9 bracelets and temporary tattoos and as well as raising $1200, students filled three large wheelie bins with donations goodies as well as 23 boxes.

Call 9581 9005 to meet dogs up for adoption.
