Res­cued an­i­mals re­ceive a help­ing hand

Wicklow People (Arklow) - - NEWS -

THE gen­eros­ity of staff and cus­tomers of Cen­tra Stores in Rath­drum helped gen­er­ate €800 for Wick­low SPCA re­cently.

Staff made a do­na­tion from their own wages and then car­ried out a fundrais­ing drive at the store for Wick­low SPCA and Sharpeshill An­i­mal Sanc­tu­ary.

TJ Myran of Wick­low SPCA dropped into Cen­tra just prior to the Christ­mas break and was pre­sented with a cheque for €800.

Staff and stu­dents at­tend­ing St Pa­trick’s NS in Wick­low town also played their part by do­nat­ing bags of Burns dog food for the many pooches Sharpeshill are try­ing to find new, per­ma­nent homes for.

One of the big events planned by Wick­low SPCA for the year ahead is an ex­tended ‘All About An­i­mals’ day on Sun­day, May 6.

Last year’s event fea­tured in­for­ma­tion and dis­plays from a va­ri­ety of groups who work with an­i­mals. The wel­fare tent fea­tured rep­re­sen­ta­tives of the likes of Dublin Zoo, the Ir­ish Horse Wel­fare Trust and Wick­low Feral Cats, while the re­tail tent fea­tured ev­ery­thing from an­i­mal pho­tog­ra­phers and crafters to an­i­mal feed spe­cial­ists and groomers. There were also dis­plays from the Garda Mounted Unit, Garda Ca­nine Unit, Dogs for the Dis­abled, Civil De­fence Ca­nine Team, Ir­ish Ther­apy Dogs and Won­der­paws.

If you or any­one you know are part of an or­gan­i­sa­tion in­volved with an­i­mals and you would like to at­tend the event then con­tact (0404) 44783.
