What's Happening

Keep an eye on this page for all our upcoming education events, campaigns, and news!


There’s something spooky happening in the Dogs Trust rehoming centre and you’ll simply die if you miss it; We call this educational event Howl-O-Ween. This ghastly event is packed full of activities that combine our message of responsible dog ownership with a seasonal twist.

There will be a workshop on keeping your hounds safe at Halloween. There is a behind-the-scenes tour of our fangtastic rehoming centre. All attendees will be quizzed in the sudden death game “Howl or Scowl Quiz”, and there may even be some treats (and maybe some tricks) to feast on while you celebrate. If you manage to survive all that, we will then participate in the annual reading of an infamous legend we call “The Werewolf of Dogs Trust”.


So, dear reader, do you dare attend this fiendish celebration? Tickets cost €5, or €18 for a family ticket (four people) and you can nab a ticket by visiting our Booking Page

Doors open at 12pm, and this event is for people (dead or alive). Unfortunately we cannot allow any dogs. It’s too scary for them, but all humans are invited and encouraged to come in fancy dress (though masks must be removed during the tour).

We’re dying to see you all.


Understanding Dogs

Our education team are currently touring the libraries of Ireland delivering our Understanding Dogs workshops. Check out your local library to see if we'll be dropping in over the summer.


The Education and Community team will be hosting a number of adult Be Dog Smart workshop in Dogs Trust Rehoming Centre over the next few months. These workshops will give new & expectant parents, parents/guardians of young children, and parent/guardians of teenagers lots of useful advice and tips on keeping the whole family safe around dogs both at home and in the community.

Please note that these workshops are for adults only, except the parents/guardians of teenagers workshops, where teenagers are able to attend with their parents. There is a charge of €10 per couple for these workshops.
