Animals In Need was founded in 2006 by a small group of like-minded people in Donegal Town who were individually making an effort to alleviate animal suffering. It is a non profit making organisation.
Initially we became involved in fund raising activities to help other animal welfare organisations. However, this was not sufficient to our needs so we had to become a ‘hands-on’ voluntary group, rescuing and re-homing unwanted pets and injured or abandoned animals.
We work mainly with cat/kittens and dogs/puppies but we also have had rabbits, ponies, donkeys and even a guinea pig looking for help. Our policy is a strict no-kill policy covering any animal in our care.
