Dogs Aid Animal Sanctuary has been recipients of ex-gratia funding from my Department for a number of years. An application for funding has been received for 2013 and while my Department cannot intervene in the operational matters raised, I have asked my officials to take into account the current issues facing Dogs Aid in context of processing this year’s exgratia application.
