This years Dog Walk …
We have booked Brockagh Resource Centre in Laragh again this year for our sponsored dog walk on Sunday 26th May 2013. We are kicking off at 2.00pm. (If you have booked an ASH dog you might come about 15 minutes earlier).
We’d really love to see a lot of support from people out there for this event. Its the one day of the year that some of our permanent residents and ASH dogs can come along and share in the fun and feel part of every day life.
Of course we are so looking forward to meeting all our friends and their very own doggies. This day is about the dogs – homed, rescued and ex-rescue! It’s a great day out for all to socialise and mix and also a bit of fun for all of the family too.
You can print a sponsorship form HERE and directions are below.
Afterwards we will be having a raffle, tea n coffee and chats and thanks to Blacklion vets we have arranged discounted microchipping vouchers which even includes a donation towards ASH! Thanks so much Blacklion Vets we really appreciate it – what an amazing gesture towards our friends animals safety and welfare. Fair play!
WE CANT WAIT TO MEET YOU ALL!
Flora Women’s Mini Marathon
This years Flora Women’s Mini Marathon takes place on Monday 3rd June 2013. We are really hoping that a few very brave and fit women out there might consider taking on this challenge and help raise some vital funds to support our animals.
It’s only early days just yet but training could well be underway already. You can now enter online HERE or you can use the entry forms that appear in the Evening Herald every Wednesday and Saturday as and from 20th February 2013.
If anyone would like to sign up with us to run for ASH Animal Rescue we would absolutely love to hear from you. Please send us your contact details via email to “email@example.com” (headed up “RUN FOR RESCUE“) as soon as you’ve registered for the race (and of course made the big decision to run for our animals). We’ll then arrange to send you out a sponsorship pack which will include a sponsorship form and a few other ASH goodies. Sponsorship form can be downloaded HERE in the meantime.
Please consider crossing that line and help us help them at the very same time. Thanks a million ladies!
We’ll be posting a few updates here and on our Facebook page over the coming months.
Fun Dog Show … thank you for your support!
Thank you SO MUCH to everyone who came out to support the Dog Show in aid of ASH Animal Rescue today in Laragh. We couldn’t have hoped for a better day. It was fabulous to see so many people come out and support the event and our animals. We were quite overwhelmed to say the least! We couldn’t possibly remember all the little Kenny’s, Herbies, Axel’s, Millies, Dexters and Manny’s, all of whom were so well behaved throughout the event. We’ve included a few pics of the day which we hope you might enjoy. A big thanks to Michelle and her helpers (who still somehow managed to put up two gazebos despite a few blustery patches while setting up) and also to everyone in Brockagh Resource Centre. We hope everyone who came had a bit of craic and their dogs enjoyed mixing with the so many others both big and small. Your attendance and support managed to raise a staggering €1,000 for our animals!!! AMAZING! We simply can’t tell you how much that will mean to all many other dogs and animals back in ASH. Our volunteers and Remi really enjoyed meeting you and all of your lovely four legged friends. Every single one of the dogs (and owners) are winners in our minds! Thanks again everyone!
