About Us

St Martin Apostolate is a Charity registered under The Dominican Order in Ireland CHY 7209. We are also registered with the Charity Regulator under the following No 20015153. We have been in existence for the last 60+ years and have a very strong loyalty among people from all walks of life both here in Ireland and across the world.

Our patron Saint, St. Martin de Porres was well known for his love and protection of animals and is almost always shown in images with a dog, a bird, a cat and a mouse. 

In order to celebrate the lives and mourn the loss of our beloved pets, St Martin Apostolate have developed this web site so that you might pay tribute your pets and to share your loss with friends and family in an easy and respectful way. Visitors to this site can publish details of their pet and can read other’s tributes – you might also want to send a prayerful thought to one who has lost their pet.

There is a small donation requested for this service and all proceeds are distributed to charities – if you have a favourite charity, please do let us know and we will consider different charities each month.

We are consistently getting requests to arrange masses and also petitions from our supporters to “say a prayer” for their beloved pets. As a direct result of this, we have decided to launch this memorial web site dedicated to the loss of every pet.
