The first sod has been turned on the site of the new Animal Rehabilitation Centre on the outskirts of Letterkenny.
The 'Arc' centre, which will be located in Ballyare, will provide a centre in which Donegal's many neglected and mistreated animals can be treated before being found a home.
The committee of Donegal Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals were joined by friends and supporters of animal welfare from around the county for the historic occasion.
It is hoped that the centre will be opened in a year.
