Dogs Aid Sanctuary Volunteer

Dogs Aid

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. Since then we have helped rehabilitate and rehome hundreds of dogs. Dogs Aid has a no destruction policy so we never put a recoverable dog down, and as a result the sanctuary is a home for many dogs who are 'too old or too bold' to be rehomed
