We could always do with more help 

Could you spare a couple of hours each month to help our dogs? Here's how you can help:

Dog Walkers - People are always welcome to come to our shelter out in Camus, Connemara to walk, pet and/or play with our dogs and pups. However, we are aware that we are quite far from Galway city and your own transport is a must. Training is required in advance and hours are variable. We do ask that you book ahead a few days before you head out to make sure that the time you plan to come out at is suitable, as sometimes we get a huge crowd all at once and it can get very stressful for the dogs and staff. See below for opening times and our kennel visit booking form.

Tuesday:      Closed

Wednesday: Closed

Thursday:   2 - 4pm

Friday:        2 - 4pm

Saturday: 12 - 4pm

Sunday:    12 - 4pm

Monday:     2 - 4pm

Drivers;  we require people to drive to and from the pound in Mayo (Thursday) and Loughrea (Friday), and to collect furniture/make deliveries for the MADRA shop in Moycullen (Tuesday).

Shop Volunteers

Foster families - Puppies need the socialising environment of homes rather than kennels – we are generally lucky to move pups on quite quickly but would love to have temporary homes for them in the meantime, to get them out of the kennel environment and give them the best possible start in life after they have come into our care. Some of our adult dogs also require TLC from time-to-time while they prepare to move on to their forever home. If you think you could help then please fill out our Foster Questionnaire.

School Training & Education Programme; MADRA runs a training and education programme for schoolchildren. If you would like to get involved in the delivery of this programme, and its expansion to other parts of the county, please contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.. Training will be provided and hours are variable.

Home Checks; All MADRA adoptions are subject to the completion of a successful home check. MADRA rehome nationwide, therefore we would like to build a network of suitably trained people who can conduct a home check in their locality. Training will be provided and hours are variable. For more information contact This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.

Fundraising and Marketing;  People with marketing and fundraising skills are always welcome. With running costs of in excess of €330,000 we really rely on fundraising events to help us continue our work. If you would like to help by organising a fundraising event, or if you have ideas of how to further promote our work, then please get in touch.

At MADRA we are extremely lucky to have such a hardworking and dedicated team of volunteers. We hope that you can join us!
