We want to thank you, our Donedealers by sharing in the glory of the work that you have helped support:
- Doubled the number of PetAware Partners promoting pets for adoption. Assisting welfare groups save more than 800 pets.
- Our PetAware Partners work hard and Every Pet adopted is spayed / Neutered / Microchipped and Vaccinated.
- Supported SPAY Ireland and the Animal Welfare Forum promoting education and responsible pet ownership.
- Assisted a number of welfare groups with the promotion of activities through free banner ads.
- Made significant changes in our policies on how animals are advertised on our site and provide extensive buyer beware information in our animal section.
2013 will see two transformative projects:
- National Trap Neuter and Return programme
- National Education Programme for primary schools
In 2013 year we want to bring even more PetAware partners on board and continue promoting Adoption as a First Choice and promote responsible pet ownership.
Thank you Donedealers.
So if you are looking for a special Christmas present to get someone that loves animals,choose one that makes a difference…..and won’t cost the earth!
The DoneDeal Foundation PetAware Team have put together some Christmas suggestions and each one saves lives!
We were so proud to see the great write up they received in the Journal.ie that we had to share the article with you:
Madra have been rehoming dogs via our Adoption Programme since July 2011 so we were delighted to hear they managed to re-home a further 30 dogs over the weekend!
It just shows what can be achieved by welfare groups around the country to impact the destruction rates in Ireland.
Madra have been working closely with Mayo and Galway county councils and since 2005 the county Galway put-to-sleep rate has fallen from 83 per cent to 18 cent, while in Co Mayo it has fallen from 72 per cent in 2008 to 11 per cent in 2011. The charity rescues approximately 600 dogs every year. For more information, visit www.madra.ie.
To view their dogs available for adoption on DoneDeal just click here or search “madra” in our adoption section. We’re delighted to see so many success stories via our adoption ads on the site to date.
If you have a rescue centre or know of a group that could benefit from advertising their dogs for adoption for free on DoneDeal, PLEASE, just get them to fill in this online application form.
Keep up the good work!
