    ASH Animal Rescue is a non-profit organisation and is based in Rathangan, Co.Wicklow. Started in 1990 we have taken in hundreds of unwanted dogs and cats and a variety of other animals. We spend our lives doing our very best caring for them, rehabilitating some and looking for loving homes for those that can be homed.

    We are heavily reliant on donations from the public to cover all our work. This is why we so desperately need your help. Your contributions will enable ASH Animal Rescue to provide life saving care for these unwanted and stray animals.  Every single cent counts and we really make it go such a long way. We’re always so grateful (and relieved) to receive any donation whether regular or one off.

    Thank you for considering any donation towards ASH Animal Rescue and our animals welfare.  There are a few different ways to donate to us:

    Credit/Laser Card payments


    Cheque or postal order

    We are so grateful for cheques or postal order of any amount which can be made payable to ASH Animal Rescue and addressed to us here at

    ASH Animal Rescue,

    Efficient Tax Donations

    If you are a tax payer either PAYE or self-assessed, Ash can claim back the tax paid on your donation to us within the past 4 years if it exceeds €250 per annum at no cost to you.
    It’s so easy-just complete the relevant form here and email to us at: 
    Annual Certificate:   CHY4 Cert
    Enduring Certificate (up to 5 years): CHY3 – Enduring Certificate
    Your co-operation is greatly appreciated and your returned forms will have such a positive impact on our ability to finance the rescue and rehoming of abandoned animals in need.

    Standing Orders (no internet access required)

    Regular donations provide us with some comfort and security knowing in advance what funds we have to work with each month.  It is a great relief to us when we receive donations via standing orders, no matter what size.    Regular payments can be made through our online payment on this page of our website but if you would prefer you can print and complete our STANDING ORDER FORM and post/take to your Bank.

    A standing order is an agreement between yourself and your bank and can be updated or cancelled by contacting your branch.  ASH Animal Rescue don’t need to be told if you wish to to vary the amount of or cancel a standing order at any stage.  However as it is very often unclear who is donating we would love it if you can let us know if you are planning to donate by standing order as we like to say thank you!
