When you donate to Dogs Trust, you are doing a wonderful thing and helping us to save the lives of many dogs from across Ireland.

Did you know if you donate €250 or more during a tax year, you can help us save many more and it won’t cost you anything extra?

The additional funds will make a life-saving difference.

How does it work?

Dogs Trust is authorised by Revenue to claim tax relief on donations of more than €250.

What this means is that if you pay tax and have donated €250 or more to Dogs Trust in the past 4 years, we can claim 45% extra in tax relief at no extra cost to you. All we need is your signature.

Do I qualify?

For us to claim tax back on your donations you must have donated €250 or more to Dogs Trust within a one-year period, within the last four years.

For your donation to be eligible for tax back you must pay adequate income tax and/or capital gains tax for the year. Dogs Trust claiming this rebate won’t affect your tax band.

How your signature helps!

Dogs Trust can claim 45% in tax back on donations over €250, at absolutely no extra cost to you!

It’s a simple and straightforward process, which allows your donation to go even further. It won’t affect your tax band or credits and won’t cost you a cent extra.

Andromeda is just one of the dogs who these funds help. Andromeda was found straying and we could tell straight away this poor boy had been through a lot.

Support from people like you meant we could give Andromeda the thing he needed most, love. Your generosity is helping us keep our promise of never giving up on a dog like Andromeda.
