A family open day in aid of Dogs Trust will be held at Galway’s Skoda dealership, Monaghan & Sons, on Saturday (November 17 ).
The event, which will include children’s activities, music and refreshments, will take place between 11am and 3pm.
Dogs Trust is Ireland’s largest dog welfare charity, and it works to reduce the number of stray dogs that are destroyed in pounds each year and to educate the public about responsible dog ownership. Monaghan & Sons has been Dogs Trust’s chosen vehicle supplier of Skoda vehicles since 2009. Since opening its state of the art rehoming centre in Finglas, Dublin, in November 2009, Dogs Trust has helped save the lives of more than 5,500 stray and abandoned puppies and dogs.
Monaghan & Sons will hand over a new dogs’ ambulance van to Dogs Trust. This van has been purchased due to the generosity of the donors and supporters of Dogs Trust.
As part of the Dogs Trust national campaign, attendees are encouraged to bring along old print cartridges and mobile phones to donate to Dogs Trust for recycling.
Speaking about the open day, Leo Monaghan, dealer principal, Monaghan & Sons, Galway, said: “We look forward to welcoming local customers and friends to the showrooms for our open day on Saturday.
