Every year the team here at Alex Clark Art look forward to seeing Alex's New Christmas designs.
So whats NEW Well ... Alex has designed some new Charity Christmas Packs - 10% from each sale on these is donated to our chosen charity Ashbourne Animal Welfare. So far Alex Clark Art have raised an oustanding £39,000
Ashbourne Animal Welfare operates The Ark Rescue and Rehoming Centre for unwanted and stray cats and dogs. We provide TLC as well as any necessary veterinary care prior to adoption, we always neuter and we promote responsible pet ownership. The charity was formed in 1988 and has helped over 8000 animals to date.
The dogs in our care have large, comfortable dog kennels with outside runs. All our dogs go out for walks or playtime at least twice a day and we have 6 acres of grounds for our dog walkers to use, as well as several outdoor exercise paddocks.
Our dogs can try their paw at agility, have a game of ball or just enjoy a good gallop around. All of our dogs are assessed on arrival and, if necessary, go to 'school' in our Ark Academy to work with our Animal Behaviourist. Here they can improve their social skills, general obedience and manners, to increase their chance of adoption. We also have an outdoor training compound where staff and volunteers can work one-to-one with dogs on specific behavioural programmes. The Dog House is a chalet in the grounds, complete with sofa and chairs and an outdoor grass play area with sandpit. All of the dogs love their time in the dog house where they can sit and relax, have a cuddle with one of our volunteers, or dig for treasure in the sandpit!
The cats at The Ark either live in the main cattery, with outside runs and access to individual cat gardens, or communally in Rogers Room or the Garden Room Cattery, both with outside gardens.
Our cats are provided with plenty of toys, places to sit, sleep or climb and can be sociable or private as they choose. The Ark has cat cuddling gardens and our volunteer cattery helpers are there every day to socialise and interact with our residents and most importantly, to give them lots of love and attention.
We also have a maternity unit for expectant and nursing cats.
