Taking in older dogs

I was imagining doing this in Roscommon some time in the longer term if I ever move to my parents second house there- although I probably wouldn't have more than 5 dogs and I wouldn't be able to afford big continual medical bills for dogs with big health problems. If shelters would cover most of the medical costs of older dogs I might at sometime in the future offer to take in older dogs where it is proving impossible to rehome them because of their age and health. I'm not planning to move to Roscommon anytime soon but I can visualise myself living there some day and when I do will have dogs so may do what this couple below do on a smaller scale.
