Mystery surrounds dog's injuries

Wednesday, 9th January, 2019 5:02pm

Just shy of €4,000 has been raised for a dog who “has been through hell”.

West Cork Animal Welfare Group (WCAWG) set up the fundraiser on Facebook recently after the female dog was found with a very bad wound in someone’s garden.

A Facebook post from WCAWG said: “This poor dog is getting the very best of vet care and treatment. She has been through hell, we have no idea how these injuries were caused. If you would like to donate we would be very thankful. Rescue can be very upsetting and difficult at times like this.

“This sad little creature was found in someone's garden by their dog. She was curled up in an almost comatose state with this horrendous wound to the back of her neck which was badly infected.”

The dog was rushed to the vet who treated her during the Christmas period. She has had a lot of intensive treatment to fight the infection and save her ear that was almost detached. She is still at the vets as she continues to need professional care, WCAWG has said.

One-off event

Meanwhile Kate Ryan, food writer and food experience creator, is gearing up for a one-off event to raise funds for WCAWG.

Kate and her husband Jason rehomed Maisie, a springer spaniel, from the local animal shelter in 2012. The spaniel had been handed into WCAWG, having been used for intensive puppy breeding.

Maisie’s passing triggered a desire in Kate to do something in memory of her beloved pet and has organised a luncheon which will take place on Saturday 12 January at Inchydoney Island Hotel & Spa.

Kate said: “I’ve worked with head chef Adam Medcalf to design a luncheon tasting menu based on the many delicious things to eat crafted by the traditional and innovative food and drink producers in and around Clonakilty, many of whom we visit during my summer food tour.

“Throughout, I’ll be introducing guests to some of the many tastes, tales and stories linked to each of the seven courses served up in the Gulfstream Restaurant, reserved just for us! We set the scene with a twist on the traditional drinks reception with canapes held in the beautifully appointed Residents Lounge.”

For event information and to purchase tickets, visit flavour.ie/luncheon, email kate@flavour.ie or phone 086-2059360. All profits from the sale of tickets will go to WCAWG.
