Moate & Midlands Dog Rescue


In 2012 200 dogs were put to sleep in Westmeath alone, currently there is no other sanctuary in the Moate/Athlone area with facilities for housing dogs. Our mission is to create a safe haven for stray/abused/unwanted dogs. Our Sanctuary will provide a base for up to 40 dogs to recover, rehabiliate and be re homed.

About Rescue Animals Ireland

My name is Maureen Ryan and I want to share everything I know about rescue animals to help you take better care of yours! I grew up raising rabbits, cats and dogs and have learned a lot over the years. I have also spend many years volunteering for my local rescues. Hopefully, my articles are helpful and as you read them you'll learn a little more about rescue pets.
