  • We hope to introduce you to as many animals for rehoming through our website.  This is always a hard task as we have so many animals with us at the moment.  It’s always worth visiting us if you are looking for a new best friend but in the meantime please visit our dogs for adoption or cats for adoption pages for some of the animals up here looking for their special new home and big break.


    Thanks to Wonder Paws dog training in Bray, Co. Wicklow who have offered a 10% discount to the cost of a full dog training course in Wonder Paws for any dog adopted from ASH.  Please click on their link above for further details of everything they have to offer.

    If you are unable to adopt an animal but would still like a special connection with a worthy, deserved and grateful friend, it’s definitely worth visiting our “Sponsor an animal” pages.  These animals can’t be rehomed for various reasons but nonetheless would still love to have someone look out for them and be their friend.  Please have a little read of their stories and let them speak for themselves.

    We are always looking for willing volunteers to help us out with dog walking.  We have so many dogs up here right now that its almost impossible for us to walk all of the dogs.  Your help would give a dog time away from his kennel, much needed exercise and interaction with people which is really important for any dog.  It also gives us a great window of opportunity to clean out their kennel and bedding while they have their fun on their walk.  It makes them happier, healthier and really helps us deal with other daily routines.   Please visit our volunteering pages if you would like to find out more about volunteering with ASH.

    We also have a Facebook page where we love to share and hear stories of rehomed animals and its also a great way for us to keep you posted on any news in our sanctuary.   Please search for us and become a friend.

    A few ways you can help us help them ….


    Without doubt the best way you can help us help our animals is by way of donations.   This year we received a government grant for €18,000 euro for which we are very grateful.  However our running costs far far exceed this amount and we rely on peoples kind donations in order to continue our work to help care for our animals.   Every single cent counts and we really make it go such a long way.  We’re always so grateful (and relieved) to receive any donation whether regular or one off.

    These can be made through our online donation facility or even by supporting our amazing fundraisers (listed on our My Charity website) who are giving their absolute all for our animals by taking part in various events.  Fair play you guys!

    We are constantly overwhelmed by peoples generosity but especially in such difficult times.  We’re very aware that raising funds for animals at the moment isn’t always going to be on peoples list of priorities.  When we see such generosity, kindness, and obvious concern for animals from people this gives us the boost we need when things get really hard and it gives us great hope and promise for our animals.

    Donating food

    Dogfooddirect have very generously offered free delivery to ASH and easy, user friendly ways to donate dog food to ASH.  This is such a great help to us because it not only saves us on our massive food bills but also the time we spend away from our animals having to go and collect feed.   If you would like to donate food for our many residents please click on either link below to find out more.


    We are always in need of old newspapers or shredded bags of paper.


    These are mostly used to help with bedding for our puppies but we have so many other uses too.  So, if anyone out there is keen to recycle and at the very same time directly help quite a few animals please think of us.  We’d love if you could drop up whenever with whatever newspapers/shredded paper you might have (except glossy magazines which we can’t use).

    There are many other things we’d gratefully receive, such as dog or cat food (see above), soft toys, bedding or beds (see below), cat litter, toys for chewing like Kongs etc or anything you think a puppy or dog, kitten or cat could be distracted with and enjoy, day or night.   These are things we’d love to get any time especially if you no longer have any use for them.

    Dog Beds If you’d like to donate a dog bed to our shelter we have teamed up with Kuranda Dog Beds in the UK who offer ASH beds at a discounted rate. You will find our preference in the Donate a Bed section under Rescue Centres and you able to order beds directly for the ASH please remember to use our shipping address. Just click on DONATE to be brought to our page on the Kuranda website. Kuranda are also offering discounted pricing to ASH customers, who use a promotional code ASH10 at the checkout will receive a 10% discount on the normal bed prices with Kuranda donating £5 to ASH.

    Just click on the picture below to be brought to Kuranda’s Shop page.

    We honestly couldn’t continue to do what we do for these less fortunate animals without your support and thoughts and we are so very grateful.

    If we can give just one person or family the love, joy, fun and unconditional friendship that we know an animal can bring, we’re not doing a bad job.

    Thank you for visiting our website!
