About Us

We create a safe and loving forever home for farmed and domestic animals in need. We foster small domestic animals and find them a family best suited to their needs and personality. We promote a vegan philosophy and encourage people to speak out against the use and abuse of animals in the farming industry. By sharing the stories of our residents with the public, we strive to show people the incredible beauty, serenity and individuality of other animals.

A Long-Term Foster Home for Gentle Violet

She is a well trained and lovely 9 years old husky-cross. She is very gentle and calm with children and loves cats: she has lived with multiple cats most of her life.

Violet has always been the only dog in her home, but is very friendly and playful with other dogs, so with proper gradual introduction she’ll happily fit into a home with other dog buddies.

She is still very energetic for her age, but after sprinting or a long walk she’ll sleep for a long time. She loves company, but also loves her own space.

Please get in touch with us if you can foster lovely Violet. We are searching for a family that can commit to 8 to 12 months of foster care.

Food For Thought

It is not an act of kindness to treat animals respectfully. It is an act of justice.

– Tom Regan

Know Your Numbers

Worldwide, more than 70 billion land animals are killed for food every year. We run an outreach program to encourage people to end their part in any use and abuse of animals by refusing to buy and consume animal products.

Our sanctuary relies predominantly on donations from private supporters and our own fundraising efforts to finance our work. We are grateful to the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine for the Animal Welfare Grant of €4000 we received in December 2022.

Charitable Status

Back Into Daylight operates as a registered charity and has been recognised as of benefit to the community.
