Adoption Application

We are delighted that you are considering adoption. Before you begin the application process, there are a few important points to note:

  1. Due to the urgent nature of our rescue work and the high demand for rescue space, we are unable to hold dogs for potential adopters.  By submitting an adoption application, you are indicating that you are ready and prepared to welcome a dog into your home now. If you are not ready to adopt immediately, please specify the timeframe within which you will be ready. This helps us find loving homes as quickly as possible and allows us to continue rescuing more dogs in need.
  2. Adopting a dog is a lifelong commitment. Before applying, please ensure that you are ready for the responsibilities of pet ownership, including providing food, shelter, veterinary care, and love for your new companion. And please ensure that everyone in the household is in agreement with the decision to adopt before you apply.
  3. Please complete the application form with as much information as possible as this will help us see if we potentially have a match for you. Please note that our Rehoming Team is small and volunteer run and occasionally it may take up to a month for us to respond but we will definitely be in touch. We pride ourselves on getting back to everyone who applies even if we don’t have a suitable dog to match.
  4. If you do not hear back from us within a month, please check your phone for text and voice messages and your email and your junk/spam folder. If there hasn’t been any messages from us, you can follow up with an email to or call us on 085 1861090 to get an update. Office hours are 9.30am-1.30pm Monday to Friday.
  5. Please note that our adoption donation is €190 for adult dogs and €245 for puppies (up to six months old). This helps us cover some of the costs of rescuing and caring for each dog which also includes kennelling, food and vet bills. We are a non-profit organisation and are always in real need of extra funds so you are also welcome to make a larger donation if you wish and are able to.
