Wexford vets to get on their bikes to raise funds for the WSPCA
FOUR members of a Wexford veterinary practice are dusting off the lycra and oiling their chains for a charity cycle race from Dublin to Wexford to raise funds for the cash-strapped WSPCA.
The number of animals the society is having to deal with has shown another sharp increase this year, with one household alone having 240 dogs to be treated, neutered and re-homed in a cruelty case, they said, referring to a widely publicised operation to rescue the animals in Ferns earlier this year.
The cycling vets from Bramley and O'Shea said any help you can give in aid of such a worthwhile cause will be greatly appreciated by themselves and the society.
Those taking part are vets Richard Bramley, Brian O'Shea, Martin Breen and veterinary assistant Christine Armstrong.
The ride will take place on Saturday, September 17, and anyone who would like to sponsor the riders can do so through the Veterinary Hospital on Distillery Road where donations can be left.
