Thanks and acknowledgements:

Thank you to our volunteers, especially Bev Kowald for her tireless work getting so many amazing prizes for the shoot, Doug Cherry for organizing the barbeque, Bev and Ron Lockley for providing the venue, Bev and Geoff Kowald for organising the disposal of the carcasses, and our other volunteers who were so essential to this day happening. Thank you so much for making this happen!

  • To Dr Sherrilynn Wakefield from the Katanning Vet Clinic for coming out to speak at the breakfast about farm dog health and diseases in foxes, and for offering a big smile while handing out all the prizes and goodie bags!
  • We are thankful to the SSAA who took up the sponsorship of the Red Card for Rabbits and Foxes events, and for their contribution of the $5 bounty to support the Regional Men’s Health Initiative.
  • To the teams, who go out and make a difference, and still manage to come in for breakfast and be cheerful and bright despite being out a long sleepless night. Well done for getting those foxes, rabbits and cats!
  • And, last, but not least, to our many sponsors. Thank you for your contributions. They make these events happen!
