Each year, rather than sending Christmas cards to each other, the Axis Team at JCB World Headquarters donate money, food, treats and toys for both cats and dogs to a local animal charity. This year, the team selected ARK in Ashbourne.
Over £250.00 worth of goodies were gratefully received by the charity and any cash donations were converted into goodies before being delivered yesterday, 16th of January.
Ashbourne Animal Welfare operates The Ark Rescue and Rehoming Centre for unwanted and stray cats and dogs after being formed in 1988. They provide very valuable TLC as well as any necessary veterinary care prior to adoption and have helped over 8000 animals to date. They always neuter and promote responsible pet ownership, which is refreshing to see, and will not let an animal leave until this has been completed.
