DUNDALK Dog Rescue hosted their annual 'Picnic in the Park' at Ice House Hill last weekend where exuberant pooches and their pet-loving owners got a chance to meet and mingle!

The Dundalk charity, which has successfully fostered and re-homed hundreds of unwanted and abandoned dogs, is now also a popular social forum for many dog owners.

A series of events throughout the year now include the 'picnic in the park' which featured a wide range of activities for owners and their four-legged friends.

With an agility course and bottle tombola to keep the dogs entertained, their owners were treated to some tasty refreshments, with kids enjoying the face painting.

Central to the day's events was the dog grooming and dog show, and throughout the afternoon, there was ongoing advice available on nail clipping, grooming and dog training.

A spokesperson for Dundalk Dog Rescue said: 'A huge thank you to everyone who helped make Picnic in the Park a success. Special thanks to the volunteers who turned up and supervised all the events and to all supporters who came along and participated.'

Dundalk Dog Rescue is an entirely voluntary, non-profit making service provided by a group of ordinary people in the community whose aim is to 'do whatever is possible to rescue unwanted dogs from dog pounds'.

They aim to re-home dogs on a long-term basis but also have a team of voluntary carers.
