Wimbledog Is Here
We would like to invite you to the inaugural K9 Crusaders Wimbledog Championship 2015!
Wimbledog is a series of tennis themed games and challenges involving our beloved motley crew of hounds awaiting homes.
A draw will take place in which our dogs will be paired with a human counterpart from the top 16 seeds in both the mens and womens tournament – so expect to see the likes of ‘Chico’ Nadal, ‘Fenella’ Sharapova, ‘Roxy’ Williams and ‘Banksy’ Murray, battling it out on K9 Crusaders very own centre court! One boy and one girl will eventually be crowned Wimbledog Champion 2015.
The events will take place at our kennels, and will run concurrent with the real Wimbledon event from 29th June to 12th July. The games form part of the stimulation and enrichment programs that we enthusiastically pursue.
All the items used can be found easily in most homes, and we are encouraging people to join in, get involved and have a go with their own dogs, and please let us know how you get on!
It’s also hoping to raise awareness of our lovable furry athletes and help them on their way to a new home.
One very special competitor is Jack Russell cross Elmo. Little Elmo very recently lost his sight to a serious eye condition, currently being investigated for the best possible treatment, but he is determined to take part and support his K9 friends.
The order of play, results and videos will be uploaded daily here on Facebook, so go and like this page now for regular Facebook updates, or on our Events Wimbledog page HERE
K9 Crusaders welcomes the decision of Judge Wynne Morgan to impose a custodial sentence on Katrina Jones – known locally as Kate David – for her systematic theft of money from our animal charity.
Jones was given a six-year custodial sentence for this and other thefts. The judge described her as ‘cold-blooded, evil and malevolent’.

Established in 2002 we have had our own premises for the last 3 years. We will help with anything dog related including rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming, advice, behavioural support, helping find lost dogs and much more.
We have no external funding as we are completely independent, and rely solely on fundraising and grants to survive. We have a non-euthanasia policy and do not believe in putting healthy dogs down. Instead we focus on rehabilitation of dogs until they are able to go home.
