DOGS IN DISTRESS –  We rescue unwanted dogs and puppies in Ireland. 

We believe that a temporary foster home is the best place for a dog to be cared for while waiting to be adopted. Our rescued dogs and pups are placed in foster care, in a secure home environment. Through our fosterers we really get to know our dogs and pups and learn which type of home they will be best suited to. So we can help adopters to find the right dog for them.

Everyone working with Dogs in Distress are volunteers and we do not have a facility with our dogs that can be visited. If you are interested in offering a loving permanent home to any of our dogs, please fill out our Adoption Form or contact us.

Below you will find our dogs currently in foster awaiting their forever homes.
