While conflict is raging in Ukraine, we are all desperate to help wherever we can. With the situation dire for so many people, all of our thoughts and wishes go to those affected by the conflict. There is so much that we wish we could do, but we must instead settle for doing what we can.
We’ve been grateful to be able to support WOSP Kilkenny and Husky Rescue Ireland as their team and volunteers have travelled to Ukraine bringing supplies and aid from right here at home. We hope that the dog food we could provide for these animals will help make the journeys these animals will need to undertake just a little more comfortable.
With this in mind, we’ve been thinking a lot about our Irish pride, with the month that’s in it. While we usually love a chance to celebrate our local suppliers, local artists and craftspeople, this year we wanted to celebrate the generosity of our nation. We think that there’s no better way to show Irish pride than by extending our hands to others, so that we can truly be proud of ourselves.
That’s why we’ve decided this St. Patrick’s Day to turn our focus to our neighbours in Ukraine and do what we can to support a worthy charity working with animals and people displaced in Ukraine. DIOZ is a Polish charity who have been on the ground in Ukraine since day 2 of this conflict. They’ve been working tirelessly to feed, rehome, move, and shelter pets in dire circumstances.
We want to help them with their task. Until March 21st, we hope to encourage you to donate to Dioz through the link which can also be found in our bio on Instagram. (https://www.facebook.com/DIOZpl)
Donate what you can, screenshot the donation screen, and send it back to us for your chance to win one of several treat packs for your pet – just our way of saying thanks for standing with us and Ukraine.
We will be matching donations up to €1000.
