Spare a Thought For Animals in Trying Times

He was a gift for three children (all under 10) who treated him like a toy.
The novelty wore off so fast they didn’t even bother to give him a name.

Ballymena’s Diane Wilson from Mid-Antrim Animal Sanctuary writes:

Dear Friends,

As you are no doubt aware, the current financial climate has left everyone tightening their belts, leaving Sanctuaries such as Mid-Antrim in an even more precarious position. Family pets, along with their veterinary treatment and upkeep, are no longer a priority in most households; the impact of which has hit charity organisations in the worst possible way. The influx of unwanted Christmas ‘presents’ and general apathy towards long-time family pets has put us in a crippling state financially. As such, we ask that if you have a talent or trade to offer, no matter how insignificant you feel it is, we could certainly use your input!

There’s nothing more fulfilling than the act of giving.
