Stability Appeal

Like most rescues across the country, MADRA are totally reliant on our supporters to keep us going; when you stop supporting us, we have to stop our work. Thankfully, you have never let us down, whenever we ask, you guys always step up, and for that we are eternally grateful. We work really hard to keep all our bills paid on time, so that we only have occasional emergency appeals, when we get blindsided by a particularly difficult (and expensive) case. But now I’m afraid we do have another appeal, and while this is not an emergency appeal, it is an appeal for sustainability, so that we can continue to keep our doors open, and keep doing the work that you guys want us to do (and that we are good at) – saving the dogs in the pounds.
Times are very hard at the moment, and dogs lives are at risk. Many of you will have seen rescues across the country having to close their doors to intake (temporarily we hope), and we at MADRA are trying so hard to maintain our services to the dogs in three different pounds across Galway and Mayo, even though our kennel facility is at capacity. 

This means that we are currently paying external boarding kennels to hold some of these dogs, while we work flat out trying to find them new homes. We are particularly vulnerable right now after the closure of our shop in Furbo due to redevelopment of the landlord’s land.  This has been a major source of income for us that is no longer available.

Collecting the dogs from the pounds is only the start of a sometimes long, and always expensive journey. We cannot take dogs out, unless we know that we can look after them for as long as it takes to find their new home. And that is why we are asking if you can spare even just €5 a month, for the next six to twelve months, as we try to navigate our way through all the trials that have been thrown at us. 

This steady, regular income will give us the stability we need to keep going, knowing that you guys have our backs, and that when we take in a dog, we can be sure that we can follow through with whatever care is needed.  We know that with some consistent support, we can get through this tough time without any reduction in our service to the pound, the dogs, and to you our supporters.
