Giving Pound Dogs the Chance of a Better Life

Fostering can be short, medium or long-term. All vet care is covered and if food or equipment is requested then we are happy to provide. We also provide a foster pack full of information about helping the foster dog settle in and there's an online foster group for keeping in touch with other fosterers and our team for support.

Giving Pound Dogs the Chance of a Better Life

A Dog’s Life, CHY 18640, is a totally voluntary group that works hard to give pound dogs a second chance. From June 2006 – 1st August 2013 we took dogs from South Dublin County Council (SDCC) pound, which was located just outside Dunboyne, Co. Meath.

Adopt A Dog

We have a number of criteria which must be met before we will consider a home for adopting any of our dogs.

Foster A Dog

A good foster home is extremely important so we can prepare our dogs for their new lives. All veterinary care is covered by A Dog’s Life and we will provide a crate where necessary.
