This pair need a new home

The adorable pair were shamefully scalded in Kerry before coming to the attention of volunteers from Animal Heaven, Animal Rescue (AHAR) when wandering around a road in Ardfert at the beginning of the month.

The pair have been inseparable since being found, even refusing to be parted when undergoing emergency treatment for injuries they suffered following the attack.

Suzanne Gibbons, who runs AHAR, told this morning’s Irish Examiner that they come as a package and won’t allow them to be separated.

Both Bonnie and Clyde suffered third degree burns following what Ms Gibbons believes was a deliberate attack.

And although the shelter has had plenty of offers to adopt the cat and dog, a volunteer at the farm confirmed to BreakingNews.ie this morning that they have yet to find them a new home.

However there was some good news from AHAR - the animals’ plight has led to a huge spike in donations to AHAR, which is based just outside Killarney and is run by a team of volunteers.

With celebrity backing from Sharon Shannon, a story in the Irish Examiner and a feature on the RTÉ news, as of last night €4,415 was donated by some very charitable folks.

One man, named on AHAR’s Facebook page as Gary Monroe, donated €2,000 to the cause.
