As those who follow me on Twitter know, we have a Parson Terrier dog named Vimes. We have had the supreme pleasure of his company and companionship for the last year and a half after taking him from the Limerick Animal Welfare rescue shelter located in Kilfinane Co. Limerick. Since adopting Vimes I receive regular emails from the Shelter keeping me posted on their progress, fundraisers and community social days.
When we adopted Vimes (originally named Reilly) we paid the rehousing contribution of €120 and with that he came fully vaccinated and neutered, they were very thorough in checking that our home was suitable and secure before allowing me to bring home Vimes.
In the lead up to Christmas they are seeking contributions of presents for the animals and volunteers to help keep the show on the road. I do not believe in giving pets for presents, especially at Christmas, however if you are looking for a companion for you or your family I cannot recommend enough that you check out their website and either see if you can help out or consider rehoming one of their fantastic pets.
As an aside the very thoughtfully constructed piece for Bennett the Jack Russell couldn’t help but move me to highlight him among the others who need to find good, loving homes.
So if you a looking for a pet and you want to be responsible and do some good have a look at their website and see what you can do. To the guys in Limerick Animal Welfare thanks for finding us a great friend.
