LCVP Visit from Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline
5th Yr LCVP organised a visitor Suzanne Flynn from Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline to their classroom today. Suzanne a volunteer with the organization gave a very informative talk about the great work that is done. Molly, Phoebe and Porter were certainly the highlight of the visit.
At The Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline, they help lost pets find their way home. Since their foundation, they have reunited hundreds of pets with their families, and found loving new homes for many more. They seek to reunite lost pets with their owners through their helpline and database of lost and found pets in Munster. Their helpline provides practical advice on responsible pet ownership to all pet owners, as well as those who have lost or found a pet and are unsure of what to do.!
In emergency situations, they provide shelter for stray pets, either at their small rescue centre in Cork, or with one of their foster families. If an owner is not found, they find loving new permanent homes that are thoroughly checked before the pet is adopted. They have a small group of dedicated volunteers who work with their rescues, helping to prepare them for new homes by spending time with them and socialising them. Every pet that they regime is neutered or spayed, as well as being fully vaccinated and microchipped. They will never allow a healthy animal in our care to be destroyed.
They are an entirely voluntary organisation – every cent they raise goes directly to caring for the dogs and cats they’ve taken in, as well as keeping the helpline up and running.
