Sponsor A Dog

Sometimes dog lovers are not in a position to actually adopt a dog. You might not be able to offer the commitment that a dog needs, may live in accommodation which is not suitable for a canine companion or maybe you already have dogs and cannot add to your four-legged family! If you are such a person, you could still help one of our very needy dogs by sponsoring them. The following dogs have been rescued by us but for either medical or behavioural reasons cannot be rehomed.

It costs €50 a year to sponsor a dog, that’s less than €1 per week. You will receive a colour brochure about your sponsor dog and regular newsletters and of course you are very welcome to visit your sponsor dog.

Why not sponsor a dog as a birthday or Christmas present for a friend or relative and make a real difference to these dogs. We will send the recipient a colour brochure about their dog, a christmas or birthday card from their dog and a current newsletter. A dog can be sponsored as a present for any amount from €20.

Payments can be made by

  • Credit card using the Donate button below

Don’t forget to email or write to us and let us know which dog you are sponsoring so we can send you a sponsor pack.

Josie & Joe

Josie & Joe were surrendered in 2013 after they had fulfilled their usefulness as breeding dogs.

Although they had never been socialised with other dogs they learnt to live in harmony with their kennel mates and are devoted to each other.

Being nervous dogs who need to stay together has made their chances of finding a forever home very slim.
