Just some of the success stories from AHAR

Ex-pound Dog Beauty Rescued


Here's a photo of one of our ex-pound dogs called Beauty.

She was skin and bone, covered in mange and didn't even have much hope. But with the help of our vets at the Ark we all fought together to keep her alive.

Two years later, look how beautiful she is? How loved does she […]

Update on Daisy (known as Fly)

We got this lovely update today from Jayne Byrne who re-homed a gorgeous little collie girl called Daisy (known as Fly when in AHAR) from us back at the start of October. It looks like she is settling in nicely!!
'I thought you might like a quick Christmas update on Daisy (Fly) after her difficult […]

Dinny’s Diary

Dear Santy,

Four years ago Suzanne saved me from a life of hell. I was tied in a dark shed with a tight chain, so tight my skin had grown over it. She came in to the darkness and cut me free, the pain roared through my weak body while she held my face and […]

Rehoming of Equines from Clare to Donegal

Cheeky Chops and Mrs. Bucket

Míle, míle buiochas, to thank Animal Heaven Animal Rescue for what they have done to save these two abandoned ponies in Co. Clare.

Operation Ballybofey to the Banner went off without a hitch at the weekend, and thanks to Geraldine, they are now settling in beautifully in their forever home in Donegal. Geraldine hit off […]

Never Leave AHAR Empty-Handed!!

10-year-old Scarlett Dunscombe-Berry, who lives near Bolton in England, is an amazing fund-raiser for AHAR and several other animal rescue charities also. Scarlett came across to visit and work at AHAR with her parents for a week in August 2013. Well naturally the family weren't allowed to leave empty-handed and as a souvenir (!!) of their working […]

Update from Georgina about our Beautiful Windy

Do you remember poor Windy who we rescued back in July after she was found dumped heavily pregnant in a field? She was so thin and weak that, when she gave birth to 9 pups just a couple of days later (as pictured), the pups were all too weak to survive bar one (despite the […]

Tammy’s Loyalty Rewarded

This is Tammy. Her owners drove her to a remote area in Co. Kerry and dumped her. She waited at a locked gate for more than a week for them to come back, barking expectantly every time a car approached, while a local farmer dropped her food out of pity until AHAR got the call […]

Heading North

AHAR will re-home dogs to anywhere in Ireland including the North. Where there’s a will, we find the way!! Back at the end of June AHAR were thrilled to re-home 3 wee pups to 3 families who were great friends around the Lisburn area in North Ireland thanks to a complicated transport run which involved […]

Dinny’s New Mammy

This is Dinny the donkey meeting his new Mammy. We just love this photo! When we posted Dinny’s photo on Facebook, looking for a home, Shannen immediately got in touch and we knew this would be his new home - the very best, most perfect home he could get. Shannen was just so lovely and […]

Betzy Goes Home!

After years of hell, on a chain of fear, with no shelter from the wind or rain, Betz went home. Melissa and Mary Ciepierski read her story on our page and knew they had to have her. Betz is old, she finds it hard to trust. Her coat is shabby from living outside. Her eyes […]
