This is Bear, Bear was found at side of road at just 4 weeks old unable to fend for himself and scared until some kind people brought him to us.

Bear went straight into foster care with one of our volunteers and now is getting stronger every day.

Bear is a very lively little boy who will need experienced cat owners to be his new family, he can be a little head strong and feisty and this could and should change in time when a bond and trust is formed.

If you feel that you could show Bear how to trust us humans please contact us and we will be happy to arrange a meet and greet for you.

Winter Warm Campaign

Last year our electricity bill for the winter months amounted to over €1700. We had quite a few sick animals that required heat lamps around the clock and our washing machine and dryer never stopped. The darker evenings during winter meant that indoor and outdoor lighting had to be switched on earlier.

We anticipate that this year’s bill for electricity will be something of the same order. With this in mind we are appealing to staff members in local schools and other workplaces to contribute just €1 each at your Friday morning break.
We will provide a poster and collection box for your staff room or canteen.

Anyone that would like to get involved please email

Thank you all for your support

This poor little girl was found tied to someone’s gate with no collar-just a chain around her neck.  We have called her Leah and she is about six months old-very nervous and on the thin side.

Leah is still very nervous but with the help of the wonderful volunteers, is gaining confidence in people and learning to enjoy life.  She will need a home with experienced owners and a secure garden in order to help her feel safe.

She is a really lovely dog with a beautiful spirit. Please contact us if you would like to meet her.
