Fenaghy Vets has donated £1,000 to Cavaliers in Need, a small and growing rescue group of volunteers and Cavalier King Charles Spaniel lovers who provide foster homes for dogs in need.

The vet and nursing team at Fenaghy Vets (Antrim) got together to apply for a community grant, made available from the practice’s parent company, IVC Evidensia.

Andy Hillan, Clinical Director, from Fenaghy Veterinary Clinic said:

“Our team here, by the very nature of caring for animals, already play a really valuable and positive role in the community. But it’s brilliant we’ve been able to win a community grant for Cavaliers in Need as being able to donate to this cause, and help the charity provide for all the dogs in their care, is very important to our team here at Fenaghy Veterinary clinic.”

Glynis Hobson, Trustee of Cavaliers in Need added:

"We really appreciate Fenaghy Vets choosing Cavaliers in Need for their community grant. The donation will help us continue to work rescuing dogs in NI and ensuring that receive appropriate veterinary care."
