Professional boxer Jason Quigley proved a knock out with the Animals In Need volunteers and rescued animals when he dropped by to see how 17 little kittens who were recently dumped in a box outside a Killybegs butcher's shop were getting on.

An Animals In Need spokesperson said: “We were delighted that Jason took time out of his busy schedule to meet the kittens and show his support for the work that we do. Hopefully he will have passed some of his strength on to the tiny kittens, some of them are still struggling to survive.”

In addition to meeting the rescued animals, the unbeaten Ballybofey born boxing champion stopped for a chat with the charity's founder, Margaret Plunkett, along with the lovely ladies who run Animals In Need's charity shop in Donegal Town - current manager Liz Mahon, who is setting off for fresh pastures and the shop's new manager, Pamela Love, who is also Jason's aunt.

Along with rescuing dozens of dogs every week, Animals In Need currently has 53 kittens in foster care. If you would like to help them, please donate €2 by texting the word ‘KITTEN’ to 50300. Every last cent goes directly to the rescued animals for their food, bedding, vet bills, worming treatment and vaccinations.
