Above: Willow looks forward to The Ewe Experience charity day for animal welfare on June 7 in Glengarriff

The Ewe Experience gardens in Glengarriff will hold its annual charity tea party on

Saturday, June 7, from 1 to 5pm. The event is in aid of Rural Animal Welfare Resources (RAWR), a charity benefitting animal welfare.

“This a great local group, which we are happy to support with our annual tea party, where all the income on the day will go directly to the group,” says Sheena Wood, co-owner of The Ewe Experience, the popular West Cork destination.

“This year we are also celebrating coming of age in our 21st year of running The Ewe Experience here in Glengarriff, after the first ten years at the Mizen,” says Sheena.

RAWR is a 100 per cent volunteer-run, non-profit charity that believes in caring for all animals. The people involved give their time willingly to help RAWR achieve its goals to educate the community, to protect and enhance the welfare of all animals and to understand its influence on the habitat, shared by people and animals.

RAWR rescues injured and sick wildlife, and restores them to health before releasing them. They help to source homes for unwanted, abandoned animals and provide information plus resources on welfare issues as a way of helping people to help animals. RAWR is actively involved in a Trap Neuter and Return (TNR) program aimed at tackling the feral cat (over) population, completing 131 TNR’s in 2012. RAWR has also set up subsidised neutering to facilitate pet owners with neutering where financial barriers would otherwise prevent this.

Like all charities, RAWR is finding it increasingly hard to raise the funds and find the

volunteers to keep the range of projects and neutering programmes going. Community support is paramount to their success. Please support RAWR to ensure people and animals can live better together.
