Visit to Sera Husky Centre
As part of our CSPE Junior Cert action project my class Fionn 3 decided to go visit the Sera Husky animal and rescue centre in Lisselton Co. Kerry. They are a non-profit small organisation that is dedicated to rescuing and helping huskies and wolf type breeds that are in need.
This sanctuary helps a range of other animals such as ferrets, goats, reptiles and kittens. The kittens need to be syringe fed and require a lot of care as they are not able to fend for themselves. They also foster care donkeys from the Donkey Sanctuary in Liscrrol Co. Cork. They take great care for the donkeys. They feed them, clean them and trim their hooves when needed.
There are approximately ninety animals at the centre. We were told by Maurice that sometimes people’s lives circumstances can change and even people with the best intention in the world found themselves having to surrender their pets. All cases are treated equally, individually and no judgements are passed. We learned people don’t realise that there is a lot of work involved in looking after huskies especially when they grow really big. As people no longer feel they can look after the animal, they are surrendered to the sanctuary or abandoned.
We really enjoyed our visit and some of us plan to go back to volunteer to walk the dogs.
