About Dogs Aid

Dogs Aid is a charity set up by three ladies in 1987 to help dogs that were unwanted and abandoned in Dublin, Ireland. Since then we have helped rehabilitate and rehomehundreds of dogs and cats. Dogs Aid has a no destruction policy so we never put a recoverable dog or cat down, and as a result the sanctuary is a permanent home for many forever dogs  that are “too old or too bold” to be rehomed. From time to time we also take care of other animals including rabbits, bats, birds, foxes, feral cats, hedgehogs etc.


Dogs Aid is entirely staffed by volunteers and entirely funded by public donations, and all of our money goes to help the animals. We are currently in the process of building a new sanctuary on our permanent site and look forward to moving the dogs to their new home later this year.


Our sanctuary aims to give the animals as normal a life as possible until they get rehomed, and we prefer them to spend most of the day playing in the grounds of the sanctuary rather than being cooped up in runs.


We can be contacted after 12pm on 087-2944310 or via email at info@DogsAid.ie . You can visit the sanctuary between 12pm and 4pm six days a week, only closed on a Tuesday.
