Dundalk Dog Rescue seeking builders for new Rescue Centre

Dundalk Dog Rescue are looking to meet with building contractors to discuss the construction of their new Rescue Centre.

“Any company big or small who would have an interest in our exciting project please contact me by email for detailed drawings.”
