HOW TO HELP
Simply make a donation today for as little as €5 and that will mean the world to us.
Setting up a regular donation gives us huge reassurance as regular funding can help sustain us in the work of caring for our MADRA family of dogs.
There are a lot of facets to keeping the day-to-day work of the charity going. The kennels are the main stage for our dogs but the shops play a key role in funding the costs of caring for our dogs. We are lucky to have a small but mighty admin crew but on that front too, help would be very much accepted as there is always so much to do!
Fundraising is one of the most popular ways to help us. We see so many of our fantastic supporters stepping up for MADRA dogs. Whether through a workplace effort or an individual running a fundraiser, every cent is appreciated. And we are prudent to ensure the funds go where it is most needed, giving our furry friends the best chance of a loving home.
Leave a legacy
Some supporters have gone one step farther and have planned the gift of a legacy in their will. This option can be as little or large as you like. Legacies left to MADRA are completely tax free and will reduce the inheritance tax liability on your estate.
Our charity shops are a huge source of funding for our us. As well as a bargain, you will receive a warm welcome and of course, canine visitors are especially welcome. You can also shop for MADRA merchandise from the comfort of your home; just visit our online shop.
Sponsor a dog
We have some special dogs in our care long term and we offer you the chance to sponsor their ongoing care. Cooper is recovering from cancer, Lego needs a hip operation and the Croga family are in the process of being rehabilitated after their tricky start in life.
You could join the retail supporters that have placed our countertop boxes in their retail spaces to help collect funds for MADRA. We have the option of a contactless box as well as the traditional one that collects cash. You can email us on website@MADRA.ie to arrange this for your business or workplace. Make your cents make sense to our dogs.
Many special couples see the value in including their dog on the big day. Whether 10 to 100 guests, you can include your pooch on a table card or have your very own dedicated link on our website for donations in lieu of wedding gifts.
