Join Wagging Tails for their second Newfoundland Rescue Day on Saturday 9th September at South Cerney Outdoor Education Centre, Cotswold Water Park, Cirencester.

"Take the Plunge 2" will again see volunteer casualities spectacularly rescued from a lake by specially trained Newfoundlands (pretty much bears!!!) and really does have to be seen to be believed. As with our first event "Take the Plunge 2" will again be raising money for Hearing Dogs for Deaf People with the aim of surpassing the £2,500.00 total achieved in 2015. 

The day has been organised by Hilary Coates who owns and runs our Wiltshire dog boarding service and Alexis Bennett who operates our Gloucestershire dog boarding branch. We will be serving refreshments and cakes throughout the day. In addition to the spectacular lake rescues the day will also feature Face Painting, a Raffle, a tombola, a talk from Hearing Dog recipient Ian with his dog Buddy (scheduled for 12:45 - 1pm), meet and greets with Hearing Dogs and Newfound Friends and our all new Mutts and the Movies Quiz.

Newfound Friends has been hosting 'Rescue Days' around the country for many years, helping many different charities, especially children’s charities. They have featured several times on the BBC programme Blue Peter and one of their patrons is Sharron Davies MBE. The Newfoundland Dogs are renowned swimmers and have an instinct for rescuing anyone in distress in the water – this instinct has helped a variety of charities raise nearly £1 million!


Over 30 years of changing lives...

Hearing Dogs want to help as many of these people as possible by creating life-changing partnerships between deaf people and specially trained hearing dogs.
