Each year IVNA members select a "Charity of the Year" giving much deserved recognition and support for their work. The chosen charity receives benefits from various Veterinary Nurse organised sponsorships such as the Dublin & Cork mini marathons, raffles and collections at IVNA Annual Congress and VN student fundraisers. The charity also benefits from a great deal of promotion via IVNA Facebook posts and website presence. The charity of the year also takes prime position at our Annual Congress and receives an invitation to speak about their work to delegates during Congress.
My Lovely Horse Rescue was set up by sisters Deborah and Martina Kenny who were then joined by Cathy Davey. The charity operates in Leinster and Cork to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome both equines and other animals that cross their path. The main MLH rescue centre is based in Kildare but they also run My Lovely Pig Rescue at the home of Cathy Davey and an equine rescue in Cork. In addition to this they advocate for the enforcement of animal welfare legislation and work with authorities to move animals in need to a place of safety.
Their mission is to give all animals a life worth living.
