An­gels help out an­i­mals

Southern Gazette (South Perth) - - STREET WATCH -

THERE were squeaky­clean pooches and happy kit­tens abound af­ter the Perth Res­cue An­gels fundraiser on May 13.

The car wash at Pet Stock Bel­mont be­came a dog wash af­ter traf­fic per­mit is­sues, with the De­li­cious night­club dancers sham­poo­ing ca­nines rather than cars.

The dancers and vol­un­teers from Perth Res­cue An­gels were rais­ing funds to help pay the not­for-profit’s mount­ing vet bills and costs.

De­spite the switch, the char­ity raised over $2500 on the day, with six kit­tens also find­ing homes dur­ing the group’s adop­tion drive.

Res­cue An­gels com­mit­tee mem­ber Ben Roberts said the re­sponse to the event was fan­tas­tic.

“Peo­ple loved it. They thought it was a great idea, the feed­back was good. Peo­ple loved hav­ing the hunks wash­ing their dogs,” Mr Roberts said.

“We’ll be work­ing some­thing out with De­li­cious again; they’ve said they’re keen to do it ev­ery few months for us.”
