At Connolly’s Red Mills, we’re passionate about pets. That’s why we’re so proud to support charities like PAWS Animal Rescue, and Irish Therapy Dogs.
PAWS Animal Rescue
PAWS Animal Rescue was established in 1997 and the team there are dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill pounds and owners who can no longer care for them.
Connolly’s RED MILLS are proud sponsors of PAWS Animal Rescue and feed all of the PAWS dogs from our Leader dog food range. PAWS have chosen our Leader range as it offers a wide variety of choices to cater to dogs which can arrive in very different circumstances, of different sizes, weights, and conditions
By working with a network of volunteers, local Veterinary surgeons and overseas adoption groups PAWS are able to help hundreds of animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes, both here in Ireland and further afield.
With approximately on average 100 dogs in the care of PAWS at any one time, dog food would usually be a huge expense to the charity, and we are proud to supply food for all of the dogs at PAWS as well as expert advice from our nutrition team whenever needed. We also organize staff volunteer days so that our teams across the Red Mills business can get involved and lend a hand wherever we can.
Irish Therapy Dogs
Connolly’s RED MILLS has been involved since the organisation’s founding a decade ago.
Irish Therapy Dogs have been bringing the benefits of canine company out to the community to help people in a wide range of care centre settings for over ten years.
Irish Therapy Dogs brings Visiting Teams – human and canine – into many types of Care Centres where people are living for short or long periods such as Nursing Homes, Mental Health Facilities, Hospices, Day Centres and Schools. The benefits of their visits are enhanced by residents having the opportunity to get to know individual dogs, so the same team will visit the same centre on a consistent weekly schedule.
