JOE-ELAINE-AND-HOLLY-186x186Holly’s Horse Haven was founded 10 yrs ago by Joe, Elaine Duffy & family. They are a 100% voluntary organisation and over the past 10 yrs with the aid of their 24/7 critical care center,  dedicated volunteers & supporters have perused their passion to help countless national rescues, while embracing their “Special Helpers” & cross border / cross community disadvantaged youth programmes.

With the help of their extensive media network & experience in the rehabilitation & re-homing of the charities rescues they adopt or foster nationwide / UK.

2013-04-23 03.24.10 Our charities policy is we adopt/foster our rescues, however if at any time the placement needs to be terminated our rescues must be returned to the charity!

Holly’s Social Haven   

ICAMARA SUMMER CAMP JAMIE HORSEs our “SPECIAL HELPERS” community/social interaction platform whereby we strive to support health care organisations & parents groups whose main aim is to continually work towards improving the personal needs and desires of those individuals in our communities who have “Special Needs” Our service is part of the new directions model for day care service provision for clients with intellectual disabilities, autism and challenging behavior. 

 

At holly’s we offer a person centered plan which is tailored to each individual and is centered around our specially selected rescues (from the charity) that are integrated into our social integration, equine training & therapy programs and the attention, love & care our rescues are getting through the programme is a valued part of their rehabilitation which encourages every individual (able bodied or “special needs”) to join in our endeavors to support the healing process of all our rescues, which in turn encourages every one involved to grow as a person while empowering them with the knowledge that they are “making a difference” in their own lives and the lives of our rescues.

SMALL CAMARA SUMMER CAMP OLIVIAHOLLY’S HORSE HAVEN Pick some of their very special rescues to be integrated into  HOLLY’S SOCIAL HAVEN”  Our social programmes are a relatively new type of rehab therapy which encourages youth, troubled individuals & those with special needs to care and be responsible for others! Our Equine programme involves the caring for our rescues as a means to accomplish this and grow as a person and through our community inclusion network we encourage individuals to embrace our educational programmes to teach them to support animal welfare, accomplish certificates in horse care & receive accreditation in Life Skills (in a HSE supported programme).

BOYS HORSE FIXED

We have found here at Holly’s Social Haven that promoting a caring attitude towards our rescue horses, ponies & donkeys has proved to encourage a reduction in levels of aggression among individuals by raising social & emotional competence by increasing empathy with our rescue’s, this offers an opportunity for “ALL” to develop and practice the skills they need to form healthy friendships!

Our social Haven also runs our animal husbandry programme GARDEN CHILD SUNFLOWERwhich incorporates small animals from  animal rescue centers (where our HSE registered Clients, Special needs day care clients & disadvantaged kids) help us to look after our chickens, ducks, rabbits etc) and we are now in the process of introducing our natural Eco friendly horticulture / growing programmes, with an alternative natural remedy programme to be used on our rescues. Over the past two years we have reduced our vet bills dramatically by using alternative remedies such as honey, herbs & tonic rubs.

We promote community spirit which encourages “ALL” to become involved in supporting our rescue horses!

Holly shared her love with us for over 10yrs and encouraged everyone who met her to become involved with unconditionally loving all her horsey friends who so desperately needed us humans to be there to love them
