Donate & Support Local Rescue Centres

It costs on average €170 to care for a dog, and €100 for a cat, while in a rescue centre and our partner rescue centres are full to capacity with up to 100 dogs and / or cats in their individual care at any one time.

With your support we can help our rescue centres care for the needy pets and help them to keep their doors open so that they can continue to provide the much needed rescue and rehoming work that they do. 

Average costs for caring for a dog in care:

  • €10 release fee to rescue a dog from the local dog pound
  • €30 per month to keep him fed
  • €30 for up to date vaccinations
  • €75 Neuter (male) / €125 Spay (female)

Average costs for caring for a cat in care:

  • €20 per month to keep her fed
  • €60 for up to date vaccinations
  • €70 Neuter (male) / €60 Spay (female)

Flea, worming and other medical treatments are also essential costs for all dogs and cats in care, while the day-to-day running costs such as as electricity, heating etc are not accounted for in these figures.

Please give what you can and help our local rescue centres, or consider giving a forever home to one of their needy dogs or cats. Donations can be made at your local Petmania store.
