We would like to thank everyone who came along to our charity pub quiz last night, because of your help we raised over €600. All of which will go towards the 200+ horses we currently have in our care. We would like to thank all of our very generous sponsors for donating some fantastic spot prizes and vouchers that got raffled off on the night. It was a brilliant night and only for our local support we wouldn’t have done it, Thank you, from all of us here at the HHO, see you next time.
We would like to say a Massive Thank you to all that volunteered & donated yesterday for our bag packing fundraiser.
We’re pleased to announce we managed to raise the grand total of €850
We also want to give a special mention to Dunnes Stores Longford, Longford Volunteer Centre and people that were kind enough to donate some of their time. Also the lads in Direct Provision Longford. We couldn’t praise them enough for their help and hard efforts.
If anyone would like to organize a fundraiser in your area or take part in upcoming events please contact our facebook page and leave a message.
Come on ladies, who’s going to show their support for Ireland’s unwanted horses at the VHI Mini-Marathon? We’re looking for participants, will you do it for the horses? Private message us for details on how to support HHO
So here, we seem to have Murphy’s law situations where ‘ Anything that can go wrong will go wrong’ type of year and again we’ve suffered yet another blow. So there we have it the horse box that’s hauled thousands of horses to safety over the years has seen better days. We’re wondering here if it’s even worth fixing but we can’t be without a horse box at the ready.
Just another bill we didn’t need and certainly can’t afford right now. Does anyone want to contribute to help get it back on the road? any donation would be greatly appreciated and a step in the right direction.
Its that time of the year again, feel free to pop in and grab yourself a ticket for just €2 or to be in with a better chance you can grab yourself 3 lines for €5. Thank you to Diane O’Dowd for putting together a gorgeous pet hamper for your little furry friend.
An update on our donkeys from other days as it turns out we have 3 very old ladies in their late twenties early thirties we needed sanctuary for them fast, And big thanks to Sathya Sai Donkey Sanctuary in Sligo for making space straight away.
Look at the ladies being greeted at their new home, it really would melt hearts to see these animals getting all the love they deserve.
It amazes us how so many people are still unaware that all premises holding horses must be registered with the Department of Agriculture, if your premises is not registered you can click the link below and download a registration form.
What more could you possibly ask for our own little beauties, happy, healthy and ready to move on to their next chapter in life?
To watch them in action now and to recall their stories only a few short months ago, it is difficult to imagine they were once cast aside like rubbish, rejected by their so called owners and left to die. We can’t even describe how wonderful it is to watch them just have fun. The little foals will never know the misery their mothers endured. We’re so in love with them all
So here it is. At the moment we have about 60 Shetlands, small ponies, from 9hh-12hh in size. The re homing applications are sparse for the little ones . We’ve been really racking our brains on how to put a plan together to find our little ones new loving homes.
We’ve come up with a possibility, we’d like to train the little ones to improve their chances. We want to help show they can be not just good ponies but great ponies.
We cannot do this alone with so many other horses and ponies in our care, this is something we would have to get some outside help with, we’re appealing for your help. Each pony trained will cost between 300-400 euro. Money we just don’t have. However, we would still like to proceed.
What we’re asking?
For you and a group of your friends to get together and sponsor the training of one pony. For every individual to donate €5 or €10 to help start the next step of their journey.
We’ll of course keep you updated on their training, we need to be proactive, positive and work together to get them all home .
You can donate via paypal email@example.com
Please mark payments training project.
Also don’t forget to keep an eye on our Godparent programme being launched over the next week.
