“Run for Rescue” Flora Women’s Mini Marathon
So far this year we have rehomed a total of 68 dogs. For every dog that went home a new dog was immediately waiting to take it’s place. The situation for animals in this country is unbelievably awful at the moment. Without us so many dogs including the lovely Timmy in the picture probably wouldn’t be alive today. We really need your help now more than ever though! If you are thinking of entering this event please please consider taking part in support of and on behalf of ASH and help us continue to rehome, care, love, support and rehabilitate the animals in our care and community. (If you haven’t thought about it yet … might you??)
This years Flora Women’s Mini Marathon takes place at 2pm on Bank Holiday Monday 2nd June 2014.
Entry is now open and we’d be absolutely thrilled if our friends and supporters would get behind us and run/walk in aid of ASH and all the animals in our care! Postal entry forms can be found each week in the Herald and you can also register online via their website :

Street collection this Saturday 9th November … can you help?
We are looking for an few extra pairs of hands this Saturday at our street collection in Grafton Street, Dublin. We have a permit for a street collection and could really do with a few volunteers to help us out. If you think you can spare even a couple of hours please pop Gwen (one of our dedicated volunteers) an email on firstname.lastname@example.org. If you can’t volunteer but find yourself in the area please come over and say hi to our volunteers – standing on the street collecting all day is hard work – even a little hi helps a lot and goes a long way! Thanks guys!
5k Remembrance Run
The event welcomes walkers, joggers and runners and has a special remembrance theme- remembrance of friends or family passed. Maybe you would consider running it in memory of a family member that was an animal lover or even running in memory of a passed pet.
Full details can be found on their website
As always thank you for your support.
Our very own Leona is taking a huge leap from keeping her feet on the ground through hard graft and tough work involved when caring for so many animals every single day. She’s now taken the mad n’ crazy decision to jump from a plane and go that extra mile to help support all the animals she knows so very well and helps every single day. We’d really appreciate any support you can give Leona on her big jump which is next Saturday 26th October 2013! Leona has set up a MyCharity page and you can access that below or by clicking on the pic above. All the animals in ASH are barking, miaowing, tweeting, neighing and flapping for you on Saturday and all the humans in ASH will be thinking of you on the day too – big time!!! Thanks so much Leona – This is well and truly above and beyond (literally!!) GO LEONA!!!

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.

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!
