Dog rescues across Ireland are under unprecedented pressure  as they cope with a record 70% increase in dogs being surrendered. These pets which people got during the pandemic, have been given up. And volunteers at rescues across the country are now calling on more people to foster dogs, Barry Whyte reports.

As well as this, irresponsible breeding practices are also an ongoing issue, leading to lots of dogs having complicated genetic defects. This in turn is leading to massive vet bills for the rescue services which are hugely draining on already scarce resources.

Bauer Media want to give them a helping hand by raising awareness and some much-needed funds with our Smooches for Pooches Campaign. If you wish to donate to help save our fluffy friends, you can do so at: gofundme.com/smoochesforpooches

Fundraiser by Bauer Media : Smooches for Pooches (gofundme.com)

All funds raised will be shared across various animal rescue services around Ireland, including Cara Rescue Dogs, Limerick Animal Welfare, The Haven and many more.
