Fundraising

These are some of the fundraising events that our supporters have organised.

 

Tory our chief fundraiser runs our market stall at Skibbereen Market every Saturday. Here is a picture of her stall where she sell products that are very kindly donated by so many people. Dodie’s goodies, doggie bandanas and beautifully crafted paw print glass hearts are just a few of the products on sale and donated by local crafts people. Our annual calendar and Christmas cards are also sold on the stall. This market stall along with one in Schull is a great way of raising funds and awareness for the rescue.

Adrian Brentnall of – Inspired-glass donates these beautiful pieces to raise funds for the rescue on our market stalls.  The market is on a Saturday at the Skibbereen Farmers Market and Sunday at Schull Market. Thanks to Adrian for his kindness and support.

A Text To Donate scheme was set up a couple of years ago which enables supporters to donate via their mobile phones. Members of the public can donate €2 by simply texting  WCA to 50300, it can be done 3 times in a 24 hour period.

Our 2019 Calendar is already on sale on our market stalls and will be in selected locations in west cork shops later in the year. If you are interested in purchasing one you can email us for further information. This is our third year producing our own calendar to raise much needed funds for the rescue and every year it proves to be very popular and a great success. All of the pictures show rescue dogs happily rehomed past and present.

Allie & Katy organised a table quiz at McFinn’s Pub on November 21st. It was a huge success, the place was packed and the evening was really enjoyed by all who attended. €867 was raised, a very big thank you to everyone who supported us and especially to Allie and Katy for their hard work organising the evening.

On Sunday March 8th 2009 Vicky and Arthur took their two dogs Teddy and Jack out on their regular walk and by 11pm that evening they had both died from poisoning despite every effort from their vet to save them. In April 2009 Vicky & Arthur adopted Molly a retriever x from us and have been organising regular fundraising music events at Schull market since Summer 2009. They have now raised €65,000 in memory of their two dogs Teddy and Jack.

Puddle Ducks, a company in Carrigaline who specialise in Outdoor Clothing for all the Family sent a €400 donation in January. We’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone who donates to our rescue. Every donation however small or large helps us to take in, rehabilitate and rehome dogs and cats in County Cork.
