Looking after your Pets

So You Want a Pet? Start here!

Looking after a pet is a BIG responsibility.  A pet is not just a playmate for you.  A pet needs lots of care and attention (as well as love) – just like you really – so you need to show the grown-ups in your home that you are willing to help look after your pet, as well as play with him/her.

Looking after your pet means you will need to help with:

  • Feeding
  • Cleaning (such as grooming, cleaning out the cage or cleaning out the tank)
  • Exercise

Click on the picture of each animal and it will take you to a page with all the information you need to help care for your pet.

Looking after your Donkey
Guinea Pig

The ISPCA have produced a legal handbook to make Irish animal welfare legislation more accessible to everyone.



All of our dogs are flea/wormed, fully vaccinated and micro chipped. All dogs over six months will be spayed/neutered before re homed. In certain circumstances or acting on veterinary advice, a dog may not be spayed/neutered before re homed.

We ask for an adoption fee of €80 euros for a dog/puppy and €30 euros for a cat or kitten, this donation goes towards the animals being vaccinated and in some cases micro-chipped and any other expenses we incur in caring for the animals. All adoption fees can be paid via PayPal.


Update on Fawn


One year on and Fawn is now ready to find her new home. For those of you who don’t know Fawn’s Story we will be posting pictures over the next few weeks to show you how far she has come. Fawn was found in Knock by a wonderful lady who contacted us straight away. Fawn was emaciated, dehydrated, skin and bone. To make matters worse she had been shot by a fire arm and had been blinded. With lots of TLC, veterinary care and one to one care from Marian, Fawn is now fit, healthy, excellent on the lead, very obedient and she loves lots of hugs and kisses.

Fawn would love a home to call her own and that is where we desperately need your help. We need to share her story far and wide to find her forever family. Fawn would need a home where someone would be there most of the day. A secure garden where she can play with her toys. If you can share her picture and story we would be very grateful.
