Dog Rescue Charity

Finding new homes full of love for neglected, abused and abandoned animals


Clare Animal Welfare is a non-profit, charity organisation registered in Ireland.

We actively search for permanent, quality homes for our animals through advertisements in local newspapers, veterinary clinics, pet shops, and special events that provide exposure.

We actively support, encourage and promote neutering of pet dogs as an ethical solution to the over-population and killing of dogs in Ireland. We also wish to improve the welfare of dogs through general education of the public and through education programmes for children.

The CAW website and Facebook page provide current, up-to-date information about all of our dogs and our work.

Our Mission

Clare Animal Welfare's ultimate goal is for all dogs to have permanent, loving homes.

We wish to help create a world where no healthy, good-natured dogs are killed merely because they are considered to be surplus to requirement.

Our poor little lovebug has been left on her own. Her sister Penny has found a fabulous home (more to follow on that).... so we really want to find this youngster a family as soon as we can.
She is only six months old so a home without kids under five would be preferable so they don’t unintentionally hurt each other. Also would be good if someone is there most of the time. We are looking for an indoor home for this precious pet.
Home check and adoption fee apply.

Lovely Moll is still waiting on her forever family. She’s such a good girl and great with kids as she grew up with them. Molly is a 16 month old GSD X. She has a great temperament and is super eager to please. She loves playing with other dogs but would be fine as an only dog. She doesn’t like cats too much. We would love to find Molly a home for Christmas, she truly deserves one🥰
If you would like to adopt Molly please fill out the pre adoption form on our FB page.
Home check and adoption fee apply.
