PAWS in the Park returns to Clondalkin this year at Corkagh Park on Sunday, June 28, at 2.30pm.

The event will focus on a 2.5km sponsored walk and a family fun day to raise funds for Paws, a charity that has been saving abandoned dogs since 1997.

Its shelter in Mullinahone, Co Tipperary, currently houses more than 90 dogs.

The charity said the demand is so great that there are now dogs sleeping in the office as there is no room in the kennels. Funds raised will help feed, care for and rehome dogs.

Last year Gillian Quinn, a loyal supporter of Paws, went along with her daughter and their dogs to support the charity.

Sponsorship cards are available from pawsanimalrescue@eircom.net. Donations can be made through www.paws.ie or posted to Paws Animal Rescue, Mullinahone, Co Tipperary.
