THANK YOU – Fundraiser.

It is through YOUR kind donations that the ACS can continue caring for abused, neglected and abandoned animals. In 2012 our veterinary expenditure alone exceeded €44,000. The sanctuary food bills exceeded €30,000. We desperately need your support to continue our work. No matter how small, every cent helps. Your contribution saves lives which otherwise would be needlessly lost. We are most grateful for your financial support.

2. DONATE BY STANDING ORDER
All our efforts are now being concentrated to get a new sanctuary facility. We will have to demonstrate to the Bank that we can re pay the mortgage we will be asking for and for a small charity like ourselves that is a real challenge. If there ever was a time that we need extra money this is it. Please consider supporting us with a regular standing order donation. No matter how small, every cent helps.

The Animal Care Society (Cork), a registered charity, was formed in October 2000. The aim of the Animal Care Society is stated in its name, to try and provide care to all animals in Cork City and County that require it. We are almost entirely made up of volunteers who give their time and effort to help animals. We are in NO way associated with the CSPCA, also known as the “animals home”.

Through our network of dedicated dog, cat and wildlife fosterers we have rehomed about six thousand animals since our foundation. We also operate a help line service. ACS Help-line Volunteers are the interface between the public and the Society. Their Job is to deal with a broad range of animal related queries in a professional manner. We also run a charity shop located in Togher, Cork from which all the proceeds are directly going towards helping the animals in our care.

While dealing primarily with companion animals the Society has also dealt with numerous cases involving other domesticated animals and wild life. Through a program of neutering and spaying it tries to address the terrible problem of feral cats and the immense suffering they endure. It reports cases of cruelty to farm animals to the inspectors of the department of agriculture who deal with those matters. It works with the ISPCA (Irish Society for Prevention of Cruelty to animals) where appropriate.

By means of its Clyde Fund, founded by ACS member Mrs. Kathleen Quinlan and named after Clyde, the dog left dying in the roadside, the Society provides veterinary care for stray animals injured in road traffic accidents. On a general level we endeavour to promote a responsible approach to pet ownership and a positive attitude to animal welfare through education talks.

And the winner is…

We are facing a little problem as our jury came back to us with two ex-aequo photos by Debbie Hogan and Helen Ivory Ward for our March photo competition.  We thus went back to the original Facebook votes and attributed the prize to the photo who had the most votes them.
Debbie Hogan with her photo “Clyde” is therefore the winner of the March competition and will be able to have her favourite picture of her pet painted by Katrina Tracuma!  Congratulations!

"Clyde" by Debbie Hogan

However, we couldn’t leave Helen with nothing, so she will receive a copy of Illusion by Brenda Tilsey Gibson for her photo “Stan, Mouse and Red”.

"Stan, Mouse and Red" by Helen Ivory Ward

Thank you to all the participants who shared their wonderful photos with us, but most importantly helped the animals in our care by doing so.  We’d also like to thank the public on Facebook, as well as our jury, who had the difficult task to choose only one out of the five beautiful pictures shortlisted.  Finally, thank you to Jill Roberts for her support in offering this prize.

Well done to all!

March 2012 Photo Competition

It’s photo competition time again!  This month, the prize is very very special.  It is a portrait of your pet (painted from a photo) by Katrina Tracuma  To enter, it’s simple, just follow the explanations below.

What are you waiting for?  Grab your camera and send us a photo!  We look forward to seeing them…  And remember that for each photo you submit you are helping an animal in need.

Thanks to Katrina for sponsoring this month’s competition.

Every month we offer a different prize to the winner.  Moreover, the winning photo will be displayed on our website, blog and Facebook page, as well as become the cover for the following issue of our booklet of creative writing, Furry Tales and Meowsings (note that we will ask you to sign a very simple form authorising us to do that).

To enter the competition, it’s simple.  You first need to go to our website and buy a photo competition entry here.  You can buy more than one entry (and use them either to submit more than one photo or keep them for following months) as we will keep track of how many you buy and use.  Make sure that you write down the reference number that is given to you (it should also appear in the confirmation email).  The entry costs €3.50 and the money will exclusively be used for the welfare of animals.

Next, send your photo (it must be related to animals) along with your reference number and your details (name, address, email and phone number) to photos@animalcaresociety.ie.  You can send more than one photo, but make sure you have bought the necessary amount of entries as submissions without a valid reference number will be refused.

You can send your photos as soon as we announce the competition and until the 25th of the month.  Photos will then be displayed in an album on Facebook, where people can vote for them by clicking “like”.  On the last day of the month, the five photos with the most votes will go to a judging panel who will select the winning photo and announce it in the next few days.
