Little Broc hoping to get back on his feet, thanks to Supervet Noel Fitzpatrick and Rósog Dashing Hounds and Equine Rescue, Youghal


Good news from Rósog Dashing Hounds and Equine Rescue, which has its charity shop at 67 North Main Street, Youghal (next to Irwin’s)! Dachshund Broc, who we wrote about a few weeks ago, has been approved for surgery at Fitzpatrick’s Referrals in the UK – to get him up and (literally) back on his feet.

The Youghal shop opened its doors just before Christmas and, since then, business has been brisk for this registered charity that helps ex hunting dachshunds (primarily of the wire haired variety) and horses.

Since its inception eight years ago, RDHER has rehomed over 80 dachshunds, as well as between 25 and 35 other canine breeds a year. Adoption fees are paid directly to the vet by the adoptee, helping to keep costs down, while monies raised from the shop is currently going towards Broc’s operation, as well as rehoming other canines.

The shop itself is well worth a visit (in fact, we wished we weren’t working when we popped in, so we could have had more of a browse!)

There’s a large selection of ladies, gents and children’s clothing (in plenty of styles and sizes to suit all tastes), books, accessories, homewares, cuddly toys and a few surprises too.

For more information, please find Rósog Dashing Hounds and Equine Rescue on facebook or contact Pauline on 089 2476993 if you would like to volunteer, potentially adopt or make a donation.

The shop is currently open six days a week and all support would be greatly appreciated.
