Dogs Trust Ireland says it has rehomed more than 9,000 dogs from it's centre in Finglas since it opened in 2009.
Almost 800 were adopted last year, with Terriers and Lurchers the most common breeds.
Ireland's largest dog welfare charity has today launched a new campaign - #WaitingForYou - to highlight the hundreds of rescue dogs coming through it's doors.

Dogs Trust Ireland say they currently have 133 dogs waiting for a new home.
To highlight the hundreds of rescue dogs coming through our doors every year, we are urging people to consider adopting rather than buying a dog! Right now, we have 133 dogs #WaitingForYou— Dogs Trust Ireland (@DogsTrust_IE) January 20, 2020
