    We got this lovely message today from a lady called Colette who visited AHAR from Lancashire, England last Sunday – thank you so much Colette for your kind words!

    Hi Guys, I just had to message you.

    I dropped by last week with my nephew Enda and my son Dominic, while you were all busy at the dog show, I should have guessed you'd all be there, but Liam and Annie had a brilliantly warm welcome for us and Liam showed us round.

    We were completely moved by the fact that Suzanne you have essentially given your home and life over to the work you do, rescuing and caring for all these animals. You are genuinely an inspiration and a legend. Of course you inspire others to help, even without meeting you that is obvious.

    We were welcomed first by your fantastic pack of dogs, with wags, hugs and kisses! It was awesome. Then we met all the rescues you've got with you, including the world famous Passion. For all she has been through she was the sweet, gentle girl you always described, it was a privilege to stand beside her and to stroke her fragile frame.

    From the bottom of my heart, thank you for all the work you do, never stop, you are shining light. All of you. I will always do what I can to support you. I wish I could have taken a scooped armful of the dogs away with me too, maybe some day I'll be able to rescue another dog too.

    Just a quick reminder that there’s still time to sign up for the Sponsored Tandem Skydive for AHAR, which is being held in Galway on Saturday 7th September using the fantastic team from Skydive Ireland.

    Full details of how to register can be found at http://ahar.ie/skydive/

    Doing a spectacular thing like this is a great way to raise money through SPONSORSHIP, and it creates a lot of interest because it’s so dramatic and daring – and most importantly, it will be great craic and a great day out.

    34 people are already signed up including a number of celebrities (headed by our amazing patron Sharon Shannon) but there is still plenty of room on the Skydive Ireland planes. So if you are interested in taking the plunge (quite literally in this case!), strapped to an experienced skydiver, register today – the initial registration fee is just €30 but you will have to raise €480 in order to do the skydive.

    Here are the details of what you have to do –

    1. Register with Skydive Ireland (€30) at http://www.skydiveireland.ie/packages-charity.php – make sure you choose “AHAR” and use booking reference number CH-GP-1885 – very important! You can also sign up by post, online or phone, details on Skydive Ireland’s website.

    2. Register with iDonate at http://www.idonate.ie/user-registration.html to set up your own personal online sponsorship card.

    3. Visit our AHAR event page on iDonate – https://www.idonate.ie/988_ahar-ireland.html – and click “Start Fundraising” next to the “Skydive for AHAR” event

    4. Pay €240 to Skydive Ireland by 1st September

    5. The AHAR funds (minimum of €240 plus anything raised above the €480 figure) must be brought on the day in a Bank Draft, Postal Order or Cheque made out to AHAR,- NOT Skydive Ireland. Skydive Ireland does not accept funds made out to them or cash. Full payment must be made to AHAR on the day or you will not be allowed to jump. iDonate.ie receipts and receipts for funds submitted directly to AHAR will be accepted.

    We would love to get at least 50 people doing the Skydive so hurry up and register if you have been thinking about it and you can start your fund-raising! And many thanks and he very best of luck to all those who are already on board!

    Hammy has a Forever Home!

    Hammy, the beautiful black flat-haired retriever, pictured here on the right, has found his forever home with the lovely Sarah O'Neill.

    Sarah has always been a great supporter of AHAR, helping out in lots of ways, and she kindly offered to foster Hammy after he was recovering from an operation.

    Well he has fitted in so well that Sarah has become a 'failed' fosterer and will be keeping Hammy forever – he's a very lucky boy who has definitely landed on his paws!
