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.

SORTED: Thanks to Jane in Summerhill Vets❤️
It’s time to socialize the puppies and start bringing them out and about. They need to get used to traffic, different people, different smells etc. They are too young to walk and haven’t had their vax..... so, we are looking for an old fashioned pram.
Have you one hanging around? We would be most grateful🙏
