A.W.A.R.E.

Are you aware of WK’s new comm-serve “A.W.A.R.E”. This acronym stands for Animal Welfare And Rabies Education.

In my opinion, this comm-serve should have been introduced years ago, merely because of its great contribution to society, and most importantly; to the welfare of ‘Man’s best friend’, the dog. However, despite its late release, it still proves to be an essential comm-serve for our community. The comm-serve essentially educates domestic pet owners about the treatment of their pets and how to keep them well and happy. They also plan on going out to educate the members of our extended community about rabies and making them aware of the dangers related to it. The most recent event has been the Dog wash, which has had a pretty successful debut.  So, for all animal lovers, you are welcome to bring your dogs for a rather exciting and fun wash up.
