Midleton Library will host a talk from representatives of Dogs Trust next Thursday, 13 July.
As part of Dogs Trust’s education programme representatives from the charity will deliver a talk aimed at children regarding responsible dog ownership from 2.30pm, with all welcome to attend.
“Dogs Trust will visit the library on Thursday, 13 July at 2.30pm as part of their educational programme,” said Anne-Marie Kenneally, A/Executive Librarian at Midleton Library. “The aim of the talk is to educate children about the responsibilities involved in dog ownership both at home and out and about. Everybody is welcome to attend.”
Dogs Trust is an animal welfare charity and humane society which came to Ireland in 2005 and is Ireland’s largest dog welfare charity. Having originated in the United Kingdom, the group opened up its first international re-homing centre in Dublin in late 2009. Dogs Trust provides many services for dogs and their owners, ranging from providing affordable neutering and microchipping, to rehabilitating and re-homing dogs which have been abandoned or given up by their owners.
Dogs Trust’s education programme includes workshops and lectures, such as the upcoming event in Midleton library next week, which aim to teach responsible dog ownership to children.
Dogs Trust receives no government funding and relies on donors, supporters and fundraising events to continue its work.
