The Louth SPCA. were happy to introduce local man Tom Ridgeway who represented them in a white collar boxing tournament on Saturday night.

The tournament took place in the Fairways Hotel. Tom recently adopted a dog from their animal shelter in Dromiskin.

This beautiful German Shepherd named “Bear” had such a positive effect on Tom’s life that he felt compelled to raise funds in order to give something back, when interviewed Tom said “this is just my way of saying thank you”.

Hundreds were in attendance on the night and the atmosphere was electric. Tom was first into the ring and although he did not win his bout he did believe the Louth SPCA were the overall winners on the night. Having raised over €1000 for this great charity he was extremely happy with himself and the generosity of the people of Dundalk.

“I was just happy to take part and do my bit” he said.

The Louth Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals has been in existence for over 50 years and current inspector Fiona Squibb has been doing this job voluntarily for over 10 years.

They have been striving to make life happier for animals all over the county, seeking new homes for abused or unwanted animals and providing information on how to care for your pets.
