I finished my first shift at the DSPCA last Saturday and despite coming home tired, filthy and smelling vaguely like a wet dog it was a fantastic experience. I’ve always been very affected by TV adverts looking for sponsorship for animals and rescue centres and despite my parents worrying I was going to come home with a load of animals it feels really great and rewarding to know that you get to do something about it.
I’m doing the Dublin Mini-Marathon in a couple of months so if anyone wants to sponsor me you know where to find me. I have to raise €350 but if I make it past the €400 mark I’ll do it dressed as an animal!! Watch this space!!
