    Remember Molly? She was just a bag of bones. Every time she lay down we had to get a few men to lift her. She really was touch and go. Even the vet said come on Suzanne, some you must let go.
    Well over my own dead body. She knew better, she gave me that look. Give me time and i listened.
    Three weeks later… she trotted up to me in the field today. Shes stunning. Still needs more weight but hey! Shes alive and has one hell of a future to look forward to.
    Im so proud of her. She knew, she could do it. She really wanted to live and wanted one last chance.
    Thanks to Pat Herlihy the most amazing foster home i could wish for. Molly… could wish for.
    Another life saved, all because of my friends…. of AHAR XX

    Tom here, we are lost for words with your continued support for our plans to purchase and develop a new Rescue Centre. As you may know we have identified the property – land and outbuildings – and to secure a mortgage on it we need to raise €100,000 and tonight we are at a fantastic €25,085. This is mind-blowing when you consider we only launched our campaign on March 1st. We have a long way to go but each week brings us closer and closer to the dream. The paperwork is currently being drawn up for us to place the €20,000 deposit and we will let you know once this is completed (and show you pictures of the land and buildings, it will blow you away!).

    What’s on the horizon?
    Our Sponsored Walk – led out by Patron Sharon Shannon – takes place on Sunday April 21st from Ross Castle, Killarney (contact me if you would like to take a sponsorship card or two) while comedian Jon Kenny will be in concert for us in the Gleneagle Hotel, Killarney on Saturday May 4th (Tickets now available at €20 each).

    We are also now opening a 24 hour auction on two signed hardback books by International Best Seller Peter James – Looking Good Dead and Not Dead Yet – the opening bid in is at €150 for the pair. We will accept bids up to 7pm tomorrow (Easter Monday) night, you can bid by sending a pm or emailing me at tom@ahar.ie Our Auction for the King Charles painting closes at 8pm tonight and the top bid at present is €350.

    If you have items (Value €50 upwards) that you would like to donate for us to auction on this page please get in touch with me. These could include an unwanted prize, a weekend away, tickets to a show, meal vouchers etc, we can put these up on our page for our Facebook followers to bid on and raise money for the purchase fund.

    Finally, for now, you can become a Friends of AHAR Patron (donation of €100 or more) by going to this link http://on.ahar.ie/patron – please consider linking in with your friends, family or workmates to become a Patron. Thanks again from all of us at AHAR, Tom

    An old man was going for a walk, when he
    noticed a little boy feeding a thin, shaggy
    looking dog with bits of bread.
    He went up to the boy and asked him why
    he was sharing his bread with the dogs.
    The little boy answered, "Because they
    have nothing. No home, no family, and if I
    don’t feed them they will die."
    “But there are homeless dogs everywhere,"
    the old man replied. “So your efforts don’t
    really make a difference”
    The little boy looked at the dog and stroked
    him. “But for this little dog, it
    makes all the difference in the world.”
