Open Day for The Irish Guide Dogs


Ark Vetcare Open Day May 2017 in aid of the Irish Guide Dogs

We had a great turnout for our open day on the 20th May. Thankfully the rain stayed away and we were able to get a big crowd. The Nomad Mobile Cafe was on duty to supply delicious coffee courtesy of Arkvet.

We had many different attractions on the day. Tom our Vet had an ‘Ask The Vet’ session. Paul did guided tours of the hospital. Our Groomer Gwen did a live grooming demo which everyone really enjoyed. There were plenty of cakes and treats supplied. The Volunteers for Irish Guide Dogs held a raffle.

Graham from the Irish Guide Dogs was on hand to educate us on Guide Dog Puppy Walking.  Hopefully they were able to recruit some new volunteers from those who attended the event!

All the volunteers put in so much hard work and effort. Thank you to all our clients who came along. We managed to raise €1055 in aid of the Irish Guide Dogs so a big thank you to everyone for their generosity.
