“We all had a great evening” said Station Commander Dean Wegerle, “and I personally would like to thank everyone from NSRI head office who took the leap of faith in our team to start a rescue base after only a few meetings.  Thank you for believing in me and my team, we have taken a bunch of strangers and created a family in Station35 and we have gained an extended family of over 1 000 volunteers around the country.   We are growing from strength to strength and it would not be possible without the support of all our donors, supporters and the support of the organisation.”

    Well done Dean, seems like forever since I first came to Witbank and got lost in a township somewhere! Great progress! Keep up the good work!
