Just a few of the many dogs who were adopted from us this year in their happy homes, along with updates of some dogs adopted in previous years.
Thank you to all the lovely people who donated, volunteered, fostered, and adopted dogs from us this year. We couldn't do it without you!
We would like to say a very big thank you and well done Emma Hayward, MA Production and Direction student at NUIG, on her work in preparing this 5 minute short documentary about co-founder of MADRA Tara Nic Dhiarmada. This video shows another extremely important aspect to our work...TRAINING. It also introduces you a little better to Wanda, so hopefully this will help us to find her the forever home that she deserves. We hope you enjoy it.
A short documentary highlighting the dogs, our volunteers and the work we do on a daily basis.
Thank you to Galway Film Centre for funding this project and helping us to develop the technical, practical and personal skills necessary to produce this documentary.
Wanda came into rescue here at MADRA after her owner died. She seemed to never have been socialised, or walked, or even touched much. Rescue kennels were a great shock to her and she just shut down completely, afraid to let anyone touch her and freaking out when any attempt was made to walk her, so she stayed in her kennels, day after day after day. The volunteers tried to spend extra time with her, but she was really slow to come around and we were starting to worry that she would never improve. After six weeks without progress, we held a special appeal and Mary and Ciaran stepped up and offered to foster her. This is short video chronicles Wanda's journey over the course of nearly a year...
