It’s a little gesture that means a lot.
A local group that chips in to help Cork’s animal rescues and shelters such as DAWG is organising a socially-distanced pet food collection this weekend.
St Vincent de Paws supports animal charities by providing food and basic items in order to free up limited finances to pay for vet care.
Volunteers will be setting up in a number of locations on Saturday, July 25th and Sunday, July 26th, 2020 and they’re asking for specific items: dog food and cat food (wet or dry, any brand), birdseed, rabbit food and dog toys.
Here’s where you can donate:
