YAP Cork Young Person and Advocate Volunteer at the West Cork Animal Rescue Centre

26/10/2017

My Name is Naomi and I am a young person on the YAP Programme. I love Animals and taking care of them, me and my Advocate Pamela did some Voluntary work at the West Cork Animal Rescue centre. We walked the dogs, gave them some TLC and we brushed the dogs.

While we were up there I wanted to help out more. I talked with my Advocate about doing a fundraiser to help them out. They have 40-50 dogs there at any time and rehome 300-400 dogs a year and need more help. We raised money by doing a West Cork walk. We raised €143 which will help with vet costs, food and shelter. I really enjoyed raising the money and helping them.

I also want to thank West Cork Animal welfare group for letting me helped with the animals and for their good work they put into caring for the animals.
