It’s Called The K9 Fundraising Danceathon

It all started when a woman named Sarita and her husband Phil Barnet saw an ad about a blind dog in a tabloid.
Sarita said: We thought no one would want a blind puppy. She might have been left there forever so we decided to go and get her. Sarita and Phil have six other dogs with some of them being rescued.
Sarita’s sister Janice Shaw decided to organize a fundraising event to help the K9 Friends dog home with their work and came up with the K9 fundraising danceathon. Janice said: We wanted to do something fun so we have come up with a danceathon, there will be karaoke too. We want people to pledge to dance or sing a song. It will go on for 24 hours and hopefully will be good fun.

If you want to help the K9 fundraising danceathon please contact Sarita Barnett at or call 050 657 8784, or Janice Shaw at or call 050 739 6795.

Now that’s a great story on how a little bit of love has turned into a dream of hope for other dogs in the shelter.
