"Animals are not commodities to be bought and sold.
They are beautiful creatures with beautiful souls."
It's 7th Heaven's 20th Anniversary 31 March 2023.
We can't believe how time has flew since we started the charity 20 years ago. Many animals have been rescued and rehomed. We have set up several schemes to help animals in need- our Pet Food Bank, Project Wildcat scheme, Made in Heaven Matchmaking Service, Landlord scheme; Dog Training scheme; Daisy Day, Feral Cat month. All our services are free. We have no paid staff.
We have wonderful people who help us donating bedding; donating regularly as friends of 7th Heaven; donating pet food at our Pet Food Bank in Sainsburys Forestside and individual fabulous friends who donate pet food to help us keep these schemes going.
We have great support for many years from Sainsburys, Tescos, Ballygomartin and Pets at Home VIP.
But most of all we could not do all this without the public who have rescued animals from us and gave them all such a wonderful, loving home. Many of the animals have had a very poor or sad start in live. You have given them all a second chance of a new home.
Thank you everyone!
7th Heaven had to recently suspend our services due to us both being ill. We are eventually beginning to restart, but recognise that there could likely be ongoing health limitations, so it will not be possible for the 2 of us to rush straight into providing the full range of services previously ran.
So our first and primary focus will be to find the animals we have in with us & may rescue in the future a good home.
We will provide pet food bank supplies to those in urgent need. We will prioritise those most in need. We will be restricting food to first time requests, with additional requests by exception & on a case-by-case basis. This will be dependent on the limited supplies we have and limited resources to do deliveries. We will aim to arrange deliveries in the same direction. We currently have a back log of requests / deliveries across Northern Ireland, so please do bear with us.
We remain committed to help those already in our Project Wildcat scheme but again, due to a backlog of requests for pet food, there may be a delay.
We will continue to keep all our services under review.
We would especially like to thank Heather T, Fay & John for their kind offers to help us.
We've been asked to share this post. During lockdown, and indeed normal times, many people do not know where to turn in crisis, whilst animals can be used as pawns.....

Please keep your cats in and keep them safe.
7th Heaven has been concerned that there is a lot of abuse and cats going missing or being killed around Northern Ireland. Hopefully the police will find out the source of this. Read this link in the Belfast Telegraph for the latest update of cats going missing around Northern Ureland
7th Heaven would strongly urge everyone to keep their cat in at this time. We are already avocates to keep cats indoor due to the ongoing dangers animals face throughout Northern Ireland.
A safe cat does not have a sad owner!

Various newspapers have published a story linking the canine leptospirosis vaccine Nobivac L4 with fatal adverse reactions.
n the article the Veterinary Medicines Directorate claims adverse reactions are rare but it is well known that reporting of vaccine adverse reactions are vastly under reported. This is due to the fact that some reactions do not happen immediately and also because a lot of vets simply will not admit that vaccines can be dangerous and therefore don’t associate them with the subsequent illness.
7th Heaven have been highlighting the dangers of vaccines for years and leptospirosis vaccine is one of the ones with the most side effects including seizures, anaphylactic shock, blindness, the actual illness itself and death. It also contains the preservative thimerosal which consists of mercury, a highly toxic substance which should never be allowed in the body.
In the article it states that the leptospirosis vaccine can give ‘immunity’ for up to a year. This, however, is totally untrue. At most it can give immunity for 2 weeks if at all
If your dog has suffered any adverse reaction after any vaccine please report it to the Veterinary Medicines Directorate. NB you can also report any adverse reactions with Microchips to them too.
Read the article by vet,
Report any adverse reactions
