Give a Dog a New Home


A dog can bring great pleasure and enjoyment to its owner. If you are looking for a new dog, why not contact the dog shelter and see if you can give one of our dogs a new home? Before rehoming a dog, please consider the following:


  • Are you and your family prepared for the commitment of dog ownership?
  • Will you have time to look after a dog properly?
  • Can you afford the ongoing expenses of dog ownership?


A fee of €40.00 is charged for each dog rehomed from the Dog Shelter: €20.00 of this fee covers the dog licence fee for the first year and €20.00, which is refundable if the dog is neutered within 6 months of being rehomed.


We regularly share posts of dogs available for rehoming from the dog shelter on our Facebook Page.


For further information contact the Dog Shelter.
