Rescue dogs, house and home flooded

Mountmellick Co. Laois was hit by horrible floods today, as 3 surrounding rivers burst there banks and destroyed family homes and businesses in the area.
My sister and a close friend live in a house in this area and there home was struck severely with the floods. The rooms are covered in almost 3 feet of water. They run the Cara rescue dogs group, were they take in, care and rehome all kinds of dogs. It is amazing the work and hours they put in for these animals and at the time of the floods there were 20 dogs that needed rescuing from the house. Luckily all the animals surrvied with the help of so many brave individuals. But now there home is destroyed, along with all their belongings.
It's been extremely stressful and so many people have been so helpful in providing shelter to these dogs until the house gets sorted. I'm asking if anyone can donate, even just a small amount, to help get them back up on their feet and give the dogs back a loving place to stay until they are rehomed, it would mean the world to me and to everyone involved.  The goal is to try have them back in livable conditions before Christmas. Thanks in advance and for your time.
