PAWS ACROSS THE SEA EVENT
Paws Across the Sea was a fundraising event where our aim was to walk or swim at least the equivalent of the journey from Dublin to London using teams of dogs and their humans. As you will see, we had a brilliant response and IRR can't thank enough all who supported us.
On completion of the walk or swim, all participants received a lovely certificate and their names can all be found on the Paws Map.
Dogs (IRR & non IRR) completing their own private walks for sponsorship pocket money also qualified for a certificate and their full name on the Paws Map and many kind people, often without dogs of their own, also very kindly sponsored us (see below) .
The final amount was in excess of £3,000 so we raised enough to clear our huge debt for Maximillian's operation and to raise some money to help with the ongoing funds of our Forever Foster dogs at the time Annie, Bonnie, Holly, Maximillian, Molly and Monty.
Nellie's walk was for the oldies and in memory of a special friend (opens in new window).

Oliver, Jean & Don Turner in memory of Audrey Corey
Audrey would have been overcome with emotion I think had she known this would happen and that in a very small way she had helped an animal charity. She was a lovely lady who was full of fun in her younger days and forever wanting to help animals, not infrequently taking in the odd stray.
