The logo will appear on the back of the jersey above the number and will give Dogs Trust valuable brand exposure during the All-Ireland final, helping to raise awareness of a very special, yet underfunded organisation.

As Ireland’s largest dog welfare charity, Dogs Trust aims to reduce the number of stray dogs that are destroyed in Irish pounds each year and helps to educate the public about responsible dog ownership.

"The Dogs Trust team rely on funding from the public and we want to be able to raise awareness of this great cause," Raymond Leddy, Head of Marketing & Product, ŠKODA Ireland said.

"We appreciate the support of the Tipperary county board on this and we wish the players, management and the county board all the best ahead of the game."

Since opening its state of the art rehoming centre in Finglas, in 2009, Dogs Trust has helped save the lives of over 4,000 stray and abandoned puppies and dogs.
