It all started in my parents' house in the middle of Cork City. I was lucky that they had three large gardens and a huge shed. I used to take in all the unwanted animals, dogs and cats off the streets that were dumped and find them new homes. As word got out more and more animals were left at our gate as the years went by. At one stage I had up to ten dogs, loads of cats, hamsters, rabbits, guinea pigs, chickens, wild birds with broken wings, goats and three monkeys.Read more
In October 2011, we moved from another farm to the farm we are in now. the old farm had no running water or electricity so for 12 years we had to go to the river with a large bulk tank 3 times a day and fill 70 buckets in to the tank to clean the kennels etc then at night take it to the rented house to fill with fresh drinking water for the animals. It was torture and a waste of valuable time we badly needed. The winter before was so cold we got snowed in and had to...Read more
…moving to the Next Level
If you have been following us then you know that we are a 100% volunteer run organisation founded by Suzanne Gibbons in 1991 and currently based on a rented farm near Gneevguilla, Co. Kerry. Our mission is to rescue and re-home unwanted animals and AHAR rescues thousands of animals all over Ireland every year including dogs from various pounds all over the country every week.Read more
AHAR started out as a rescue for horses and ponies that were going to the slaughterhouse but very quickly it turned into a rescue for ALL unwanted animals and birds including wildlife and all cruelty cases.
On average per week, 13 dogs, 10 cats, 2 wildlife animals, and 4 horses are homed or fostered or sent to UK rescues through AHAR. Also an average of 2 donkeys and 2 goats a month are handed in by the public. This adds up to an average of over 1,500 animals a year rescued by AHAR, not counting an additional average of 200 goats a year (sent to AHAR from Caoilte) and between 4 and 6 hundred battery hens a year.Read more
At the moment, as with many rescues, AHAR is struggling with the large increase of unwanted and neglected animals and needs a little bit of help from all of us. As little as €3 a month can make a huge difference.
AHAR never says no to any animal in need. We rescue dogs, cats, horses, birds, reptiles, fish, etc. If you can spare €3 a month this will go towards the feeding and the veterinary care that these animals require.
