We are very sorry, but we are unable to take in any owner surrender dogs for the foreseeable future. Due to the high amount of dogs coming into us from the pounds and being found straying on a daily basis, we are full up. This time of year is always slow for rehoming and we do not expect to have any extra space in the kennels until after the new year.
The Sports Hall at Galway-Mayo Institute of Technology (GMIT) on the Dublin Road will provide the venue for the MADRA dog adoption day this Saturday, 4 October, from 12 – 4pm.
The event is being organised to help us find new homes for the many dogs of all shapes, sizes and breeds currently in our care.
Visitors on the day can meet each dog and find out more information about the dog’s personality and activity level, as well as the type of home that will suit them best. Those interested in adopting a dog on the day will be asked to complete an adoption questionnaire and a home check is required.
Speaking about the event, MADRA spokesperson Eileen Keleghan commented, "While we have great success in finding homes through our website and Facebook page it is sometimes hard to capture a dog’s personality with a write-up and picture; meeting the dog at an adoption day helps potential new owners to get a better idea of the dog's characteristics and requirements.
"People come from far and wide to meet our dogs, and many end up finding their perfect canine match at an adoption day", she added.
All dogs are micro-chipped, vaccinated and neutered before going to their new homes and an adoption fee of 150 euro is recommended.
Visitors are asked to make their way to the north entrance of GMIT (second entrance after the roundabout) where they can access the car park for the Sports Hall.
