We are an animal sanctuary based in the heart of the Nire Valley, County Waterford, Ireland. We are a last chance for animals in crisis. We do not accept drop offs from the public, however we do love visitors! When you pop into us in the Nire Valley, please wear old clothing that you don’t mind getting dirty (Our animals are free to roam and play). We believe in happy, healthy animals - you won’t find any runs/cages with unhappy occupants. We rescue dogs from the Waterford Pound and Tipperary every Thursday in coalition with South Tipp dog rescue. We sign out any dogs that haven’t been claimed and are at the end of their 5 days. We take every dog that is available (we don’t cherry pick!). These dogs are rehomed locally where possible, those that can’t are taken to the UK where they are collected by UK rescues and rehomed from there. On the new website you will find information about the people that make the Deise Animal Sanctuary possible, photos of an array of our occupants (past and present), suggestions of how you can help and a database of who we have for adoption. Here at Deise Animal Sanctuary we are incredibly grateful for anything and everything we receive through donations. We heavily rely on funding from the public.
