    Tom here, we have had some queries with regards to where we stand in terms of Charity Status. We submitted our Application in February this year which was acknowledged by Revenue in mid March. Subsequently, in order to process the application further, Revenue requested some more information which we have provided and are waiting to hear back from them. The entire process is very detaiiled and comprehensive and can take 6 to 9 months to complete. We will keep you updated.

    For clarity, to quote Revenue…"please note that in Ireland the application is for Charitable Tax Exemption (there is no Register of Charities in Ireland)…..at the end of the process Revenue allocates a CHY Reference Number which is a reference number denoting that the body has Charitable Tax Exemption." This allows people who make donations to claim tax relief on same.

    For all the strong people out there, who every day make a difference to animals all over the world. You might run a rescue or volunteer in one. You might share the photos on face book or share our education posts. You might foster or adopt. Either way we would be lost without your help. Thank you for being different, thank you for caring enough to make a change in the life of just one animal. Together we are a team. Together we are changing the future xx

  • One last story tonight. Be ready to cry laughing.
    We left the house tonight, went to collect a dog. Came home to see the parrot Charlie after eating the door of my kitchen.(standing on the child gate) So Danny went peeping in the hole he made to see what he was up to. Camera ready… crying laughing. The two fools…

    My beautiful boy Spot.
    11yrs ago I went to Puck fair to collect a pony for a friend. I drove in and parked up my jeep and box. Next thing I saw was this tiny puppy tied to the rim of a transit van. He was for sale. My heart melted. I had to have him. 50 Pounds.
    I looked in my purse and had 27 pounds left. What could I do?
    So… I went over and asked them would they wait an hour and i would be back.
    I went up and collected the pony my friend had bought and was walking him down through the town when a famous horse dealer called me and said Suzanne will you ride this pony for me. I said hold this and jumped up on the other pony. He gave me 20 pounds. As he sold the pony after. (remember im a riding instructor and showjumper aswell as running a rescue. But i don't buy or sell horses/ponies. I rescue them and get pride out of making them famous when other people have given up on them) I danced down the town counting the money in my pocket. 47 pounds.
    I walked over and untied the twine he was tied with and i offered them my coins. They took them. He was to become my life long loyal friend…. Spot. To this day when we get the round bales of hay or straw. Spot jumps up and sits watching us all. Hes one dog in a million and the best few pounds i ever spent.
    Hes a dog that changed my life and taught me respect in many ways. Full of wisdom, hes so nobel and proud.
    Years have passed and if it was now i would just take him. But i was young and in love with a dog that would become, my best friend xx
