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.

GINGER ROGERS❤️Poor little Ginger had a tough start in life. She was found as a sickly four week old kitten on the streets of Limerick with cat flu. Some kind people picked her up and dropped her onto the vets in Limerick city and they asked us to take her.Thankfully one of our lovely fosterers Gillian took her in and nursed her back to health. Ginger has nearly fully recovered and we need to find a home for her as one of the dogs in the house is ill and needs minding.If you would like to adopt eight week old Ginger Rodgers and give her a new start in life please fill out the cat pre adoption form on our website check and adoption fee apply. ...
