“Record funding has been awarded to animal welfare charities across County Wexford and the country. The announcement coincides with the third annual animal welfare awareness day. I want to commend all the volunteers and staff of these organisations who go above and beyond to take care of these animals. My Government colleagues and I recognise the great work being done by these charities in protecting, rescuing and taking care of animals. I am glad that this funding will make a significant difference to these six animal welfare organisations in County Wexford.”
