What’s Happening: September 15, 2013

    There are now just 19 of the 50 ‘Shares’ left (at €20 each – http://on.ahar.ie/isolation) in our latest Sponsor A Stable Syndicate in what will be the isolation unit at our new AHAR Rescue Centre, which we are christening our ‘Isolation and High Dependency Unit – Providing Passion for Life’.

    This isolation unit will welcome new arrivals to AHAR and will also be used to keep any sick equines separately. It is of course named after our incredible 'War Horse' Passion whose amazing transformation in the past months, from an emaciated near-skeleton of a horse to a gleaming beauty (pictured here back in June with Suzanne when in her first week at AHAR) will hopefully serve as an inspiration to all the future sick and injured equines that come into our care.

    They say 'where there's a will, there's a way' – and where any animal that comes into AHAR's care has the will to survive, we will always try to find the way to save their lives.

    In total, there are 50 'shares' available in the our new Stable Syndicate (31 of which are already gone) for a donation of €20 each – you can buy one or multiple 'shares' through the following link – http://on.ahar.ie/isolation – we will list all donors when the Syndicate is full and of course all proceeds go toward the purchase of the new premises for our permanent AHAR Rescue Centre.

    The Sponsor A Stable Scheme has in fact been one of the bedrocks of our fund-raising for the purchase of permanent premises for our new AHAR Rescue Centre and after all 28 stables in the main block were sponsored, we have now made the 4 stables in our planned isolation unit available for life-time sponsorship (with a plaque on the door commemorating the sponsor) for a once-off donation of €1,000. If you would be interested in sponsoring an entire stable, as an individual, business or a group of family members/friends, then you can do so through the following link – http://on.ahar.ie/stable

    A big thank you to Peter Wortmann who raised 400 Euro for AHAR by sponsoring a golf holiday for a group from Germany (pictured here) and organizing a Golf tournament for them at the Old Head in Kinsale. We are so grateful Peter and look forward to meeting you at our Sponsored Tandem Skydive in Galway on Sunday 29th September.

    My name is Toby (not my real name, but if you adopt me you will be told)
    For 11 yrs I was on a chain day and night acting as a security dog to protect a post office and shop. It was the only place in the area, who never had a break in.
    I was a very proud dog, I protected my family and I had a job to do so i felt important.
    I did have a make shift shelter, but sometimes the winters were very cold so my coat is a bit worse for wear. I know I shouldn't complain as I was fed and I know so many other dogs in the area often went without food or shelter even though they worked hard minding the sheep and cattle.
    Then just a few weeks ago, this van drove in with cameras on its logo. What was this?
    I was soon to find out how my life would change after the van drove out.
    My owner opened the door of his jeep to let me in. I was so excited I was going for a spin. The warm jeep was so soothing, I feel asleep.
    When I woke to hear loads of dogs barking, I jumped up to see. Who were they all? What were they doing here?
    Then I heard one of them say… this is a death row pound. What is that I wondered?
    The next few minutes were a blur. I was dragged on a lead into cell four and the door banged shut.
    It was cold solid steel.
    I tried to put my paws under the door and cried, this was a mistake.
    But as the days went by, he didn't come back.
    Five days had passed by now. How I missed my chain and shelter.
    My paws were sore from the wet cement. The constant barking was really getting to me, I missed my country home.
    But then a jeep drove in and a few people started taking the dogs one by one.
    Where were they going?
    It was my turn next. As she held me, the dog warden told her my story. She just bent down and stroked my face and I could see she was upset.
    The last two weeks have been fun. Im fed twice a day, taken on long walks by loads of lovely people. But the best bit, I get to sleep on a really warm blanket in from the rain.
    They say im now up for adoption.
    Whatever that means… I hope its nice.
    Maybe it means I might get another job and I will be important again. Who knows? But im about to find out xx
