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.
