K9 Animal Rescue is fundraising hard to raise enough money for desperately needed renovations to its 20-year old kennel block.

The dogs are now being injured from the deteriorating infrastructure and cannot be subjected to another winter in flooded pens.

Donations of cash or building materials are very welcome.

K9 is hosting an adoption day on Saturday, December 8 at 58, Sunshine Place, Nambeelup from 10am-3pm to showcase their dogs and find them forever homes.

The fun-filled day, sponsored by Pet City, kicks off with dog parades and includes stalls with bric-a-brac, pet accessories, a sausage sizzle, fairy floss, coffee van, plants, face, painting and lucky dips.

Have your pet painted by K9 artist Peter Garside or a photo with Santa and his elves.

K9 publicity officer Janine Matthews and Steve Larkins have rolled out a new fundraising program for dogs.

They are joining forces with dog friendly cafes around Mandurah and Rockingham who will provide a container of dog biscuits provided by Pet City on the counter along with a collection tin.

Two cafes are already on board – Pengo’s in Shoalwater, which has raised more than $1000 in just three months, and Mataya Eatery in Mandurah.

K9 has also been part of the Socialability Program, a pilot program run by Peel Volunteer Resource Centre that focuses on volunteer organisations gaining the skills to have inclusive volunteer programs in their organisations.
