BARN Animal Rescue are planning to construct a new shelter to house pregnant dogs and new born puppies that need extra care and attention, thanks to fundraising by SPAR Lambeg.

To raise the much-needed funds, the team swapped out their usual uniform for a dress up day, raising over £900 for the charity.

BARN Animal Rescue is a Newtownards based charity which promotes animal welfare, rescuing those in need, providing care and rehoming when they are ready. Some dogs have also found a permanent home at the BARN.

Glenn Ford from BARN commented, “Our charity relies solely on donations, so support like this from SPAR Lambeg is vital for us to continue what we do. We want to extend our thanks to the team and their shoppers for such generosity. All money the team have raised will go towards the construction of the new shelter.”
