Dogs Trust

Regional Rehoming

In the past, we were more restricted in our rehoming capabilities, having only one Rehoming Centre located in Dublin. However, when the Covid-19 pandemic hit, and travel restrictions were put in place, we had to re-evaluate the procedures we used for rehoming dogs.

During the initial lockdown period, we were inundated with kind offers to foster dogs, from families all over the country. This meant that dogs could be fostered close to where they were rescued and then could be rehomed directly from there to their Forever Homes. Thanks to the support of these caring foster families and several trusted boarding kennels, we were able to reduce the number of dogs needing to travel to their Rehoming Centre and have been able to help many more vulnerable dogs find the loving homes that they need.

We are delighted that so many more dogs can be matched with loving families throughout the country and you can see all of the dogs available for adoption by clicking HERE and looking out for “Munster, Connacht or Leinster Regional Rehoming Project” under a dog’s photo like Billy and Ruby:
