“Over the last decade we have worked tirelessly to rescue, rehabilitate and rehome as many dogs as possible across Ireland. Since our work began, we have rehomed over 17,000 Irish dogs.

“To celebrate this monumental milestone, we wanted to create a special fun-filled event for our amazing supporters and all dog-lovers, showcasing the amazing work that we have achieved together and honouring all the beautiful lives we have changed for the better (dog and human) over the last ten years,” she added.
