Hutch’s Community Action fund

€4,050 of €5,000 goal

Raised by 145 people in 18 months
Hutch was found on Sunday morning 29/01/18 nailed to a tree and wrapped in wire on the riverbank in Mountrath between the quakers graveyard and Rushin Road. He had been there for some time. Hutch’s family are distraught , he was a beloved family pet who was missing for a few days but he was so badly injured that he had to go to eternal sleep. He slipped away in the loving arms of the lady who found him with her teardrops falling on his head and being snuggled by her dog who sensed something was wrong and was comforting him. Thank you so much to the kind couple who cut him down, called the vet and stayed with him and comforted him in his last moments.

The Gardai are investigating and a lot of people have come forward with information. We again appeal to anyone who saw anything unusual / suspicious on the Rushin Road on Saturday night to come forward.

We can absolutely confirm that Hutch was not caught in a snare and that this was an act of wanton cruelty! The person who did this is living in our town, the entire community of Mountrath  is incensed at this outrageous cruelty. Our aim is that Hutch’s torturers will be brought to justice and that something good for the community will come out of this shocking act.  

All money collected will be used to:
1. Provide a REWARD for information leading to the
     conviction of the culprits.
2. Cara Rescue Dogs.
3. Build a Dog Park in Mountrath.


We have asked Cara Rescue Dogs to come into our schools to educate our children on pet care and Mountrath Development Association (MDA) are at an advanced stage of consultation with the Local Authority for to build Mountrath Dog Park.

The fund will be administered by the Trustees of the fund:
1. Isobella Kingston (Hutch's Family)
2. Karla Mitchell (Cara Rescue Dogs)
3. Brenda O’Grady (Chairperson MDA).

The decision of the Trustees in relation to the dispersion of the fund will be final. Full details of the amount of money donated and its distribution will be disclosed publicly.

Donations can be made from the 2nd February 2018  and the fund will close on the 2nd March 2018.
