Mission Statement

Red Shed acts as a partner animal welfare organisation that works with underfunded shelters across various economically marginalised communities. Its mission: Build fully functioning animal welfare shelters in areas where animals are displaced due to war, climate change or other extraordinary circumstances. Create Red Shed Learning Centres as part of the shelter builds in order to educate, inform and raise awareness of animal welfare issues. Deliver emergency rescue services temporarily in dangerous zones where animals are in serious danger.


Red Shed is an animal welfare organisation that exists to fulfill a growing need of animal displacement due to war, climate change and other extreme circumstances.

It was set up in Dublin, Ireland by Sandy Sheerin who envisioned The Red Shed as a place where sick, neglected, homeless and refugee animals could be initially homed, rehabiliated and cared for.

Multiple Red Sheds are forecasted to be built over the next 5 years where animals are endangered or displaced.

Red Shed's goals are:
- To become synonymous with emergency Red Sheds where conflict or extreme circumstances emerge that is harmful to local animals.
- To create Red Sheds in areas where local communities can benefit from the care given to animals.
- To educate, inform and raise awareness to the general public on the work carried out in emergency rescue services for animals.

Red Shed Programs:
2022 - Voluntary Programs to help rebuild or restructure existing animal welfare shelters in areas where shelters are underfunded and in substandard condition. (Particular focus on Ukrainian border shelters and Ukraine)
2023 - 2025 - Build new Red Sheds across various countries where turmoil has emerged and the livelihoods and survival of animals is at great risk.
