Animal Advocacy is one not-for-profit person, nested in an inspiring network of charitable, government, public & networking organisations, volunteers and individuals.

We’re all part of that network!

I’m primarily involved in Trap Neuter Return (TNR) - maintaining and promoting Ireland's TNR Manual - How to Help Community Cats - and providing workshops and information evenings on all aspects of Best Practice TNR and Working Together. It's all about getting the information and skills out there - and, ultimately, solving Ireland feline overpopulation problem! At the same time, I do seem to end up doing a bit of animal transportation, fostering and rehoming in the process. And networking, fundraising and information provision. There’s always something!

She’s a total sweetie, and has obviously been a pet – complete with pink sparkley collar! But she’d plainly be stray for a while – very, […]

Asparagus Tips

Gus came from Cavan pound to AHAR to me for fostering in Febrary 2012. We don’t know how he got to the pound – stray, abandoned, surrendered or cruelty case. He’s a wee affectionate JRT cross, about 1 year old, neutered (so someone cared about him once), emaciated (not just painfully thin, genuinely emaciated), mange […]

Gibson Says Ohai!

Think it’s about time I introduced you to the latest arrival. Meet Gibson! Gibson was surrendered to ARC (Animal Rescue Cobh) around 23rd April 2012. Sporting a fetching head tilt, a full set of balls and an FIV positive status, ARC were a bit worried about finding a home for this poor boy. And Samantha, evil […]
