Ireland's abandoned dogs urgently need your help today.
Please help them by making an emergency donation.
In the last few months, we have seen an alarming rise in the number of dogs being abandoned in Ireland. This is partly because many dogs were bought during the pandemic and are no longer wanted now lockdown has ended.
This unexpected and heart-breaking increase means Dogs Trust is facing a rehoming emergency. We urgently need more funds, more foster-carers and more support from the Irish dog-loving public to help as many vulnerable dogs as we can.
We have been quick to set up fostering hubs across Ireland to save and take in as many dogs as we can, but we urgently need your help to do more.
We’re concerned that the current emergency is likely to get worse in the weeks and months ahead. The cost-of-living crisis may force some dog owners to make the difficult decision about whether or not they can afford a dog.
