    New mission.
    There is up to 9 thoroughbreds that were booked to go to the factory on Monday. This lady did not want to resort to this but failed to rehome them. They range from yearlings, stud mares and a stallion. All very well bred. We will be in the North Saturday with a lorry and box to save them. Please pm us now if you can help. Foster or adopt. This is urgent.
    You can donate on www.ahar.ie
    Remember you can buy a voucher for life as a Christmas present for a little fee of 50 euro for all your equine friends.


    Animal Heaven Animal Rescue (AHAR)
    www.ahar.ie
    We rescue abandoned and unwanted animals, nurse them back to health, feed and take care of them until we can find a new loving forever home for them so they can have a happy life. We rescue dogs, cats, horses, goats, pigs, chickens, basically any animal that needs help.

    This is one of my favourite women in rescue Gina Hetherington from Paws saying good night last night.
    Very wise words.

    Today, I have been out of the office and have been watching a thread on another page where good people who are trying to do their best under extremely difficult circumstances are being bullied and slated. At times like this, I am so happy to have such a select and devoted group of animal lovers around us. The jealousy and bitterness in Animal Welfare in Ireland is legendary, possibly because we are such a small country, with a limited number of donors and everyone is at the point of desperation.
    If only everyone could work together, something might actually be achieved. But, alas, I cannot see it happening in our lifetime.

    Thank you all for being there and for your unrelenting support for our work. We can all sleep well tonight knowing that we are making a difference. Night Night XX

    "We thank God for our underpaid and overworked employees and volunteers who give their time and compassion to try to ease the burden,
    But most of all we thank God for YOU, our supporters, because without you, we would not be here today and we would be unable to keep our doors open to those in need. Believe me, together, we have made a
    Difference

    There is no going back now, for if we stop tomorrow.. What will happen to those unheard voices ?
    We MUST go on, despite lack of Government support,
    We MUST go on despite lack of funds,
    We MUST go on because we have to…
    Because somebody has to…. Gina Hetherington

    Karmas diary.
    I think at first I felt I was dreaming, had I died? But each morning I now know I really am alive. I sleep on rubber mats with a foot of pure white shavings.
    Fresh sweet smelling hay is at my 24 hr disposal. I get a bowl of mix every morning and im told im so beautiful.
    Tonight I got to go for a walk with Suzanne and pick away at the sweet grass. What have I done to deserve this new life.
    Its foster homes that come forward like Sarah that change our lives. It means AHAR can save more.
    Sarah talks to me and is so kind.
    Someone said today they must do a home check for me…. oh I pray they are nice people. I think I would rather die than return to a place like that mountain.
    Danny the vet is coming tomorrow to give me a passport, I must be going on holiday? Maybe the beach and I can put my tired hooves up.
    All my friends that were saved are here with me. We often talk over the doors. They are all so happy to be here but we will never forget our friends who died, the memories I had with them will stay forever. I hope they are running free now and happy at last. Sometimes I feel guilty that we survived. But now I have my baby to think about, I must stay strong. Thank you for following my little story xx

    I have been reading your page and following your work for about a year now – since the gorgeous Myrtle (So-Me) adopted us. The recent drama caused by some nasty people has made me really think. Also I remember something you put previously about people believing you are living the dream so therefore its easy makes me compelled to say what is on my mind right now. Some people are envious and some are jealous. There is a clear distinction between the two. I believe most people are envious – these are your supporters of whom there are thousands. I am one of these. I am envious of someone who has the courage, conviction, strength, compassion, unselfishness and determination to live their life pursuing what they truly believe in. To be able to work so hard without reaping the material goods that most of us in our society succumb to is so admirable. There are no lavish houses, flash cars, luxurious holidays etc. I am envious because I am in awe of someone who can be so selfless and I wish I had it in me to be more like that. Knowing someone is making such big sacrifices for the good of others (animal or human) makes us feel humble but also envious that we don't feel the happiness that this must achieve. Just having given one rescue dog a loving forever home fills my heart with joy – so I can only imagine how yours must feel when things go right. The satisfaction from last weeks mammoth rescue must be immense and rightly so. However – I am envious, not jealous. I would love to be more like you but if I can't then at least I enjoy admiring, following, supporting your work and your beliefs. Throughout history living saints have been persecuted – Jesus, Martin Luther King, Princess Diana (to name but a few) by the jealous people. There are those who feel threatened by someone so good and strong because they can't do it themselves. Those who are compelled to succeed by eliminating competition are filled with hatred and contempt. Witnessing the goodness in others and not being able to compete makes them even more evil resulting in sneaky, vile behaviour. Jealousy drives them to try to hinder the perseverance required to achieve success where they would be defeated. I feel nothing but pity for such people. Many of us have been angered by the criticisms hurled at you over the last few days by some very nasty people. They are no better than those that abused the animals in the first place. But it is satisfying to know that they cannot feel the pride and satisfaction in their lives that you do. At the end of the day their hearts and minds are filled with bitterness and misery. They've made their bed – Yours is a lot more comfy

    The story of Danny.
    Sixteen years ago, I met Danny. He was on the side of the road looking for a lift to the shop. As I drove, I asked him where he lived… where he was born ect. Small talk lol.
    All he could say was, what will be will be. I didn't understand what he meant. Till now.
    I dropped him to the shop but all that day I couldn't stop thinking of him.
    There was something about him, that I wanted to keep.
    Our path would soon be unveiled.
    Later that week, I called to find out where he lived. The only way to describe it, was a shell of an old mobile crushed against a ditch.
    He had to crawl out on his hands and knees to greet me.
    He had nothing. My poor soul, I had to take him home.
    From that moment, Danny became my rock.
    The father, I adopted.
    Its now been 16 yrs since Danny joined AHAR.
    Sometimes we sit in the kitchen, like tonight and remember all our stories we lived together and god! do we laugh.
    Its times like this that I know im on the right path.
    Good night from AHAR XX

    Apologies – posted the wrong 'Before' picture of Phoebe earlier (from the 5-ex puppy farm dogs we took in last week). This is the correct one – thanks to those who pointed it out!

    Well here is that same beautiful beagle today – now named Phoebe and already looking a different dog after a week of TLC in AHAR and now a lovely hot bath in Siobhan's house.

    Phoebe has settled in great to her wonderful new home, has been out and about exploring the garden, and has already started wagging her tail. The poor girl can hardly believe her luck we reckon!! Space, freedom and showered in love!

    Siobhan, you're wonderful for taking Phoebe into your home and we will of course assist however we can when the time comes for her to give birth to her pups. Thank you so much!
