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.
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.
Fosterers assess dogs for us, help them after surgery (spaying and neutering usually) and socialize and train the dogs.
This is usually temporary and can last for a few days to months. Fosterers can adopt, although keeping a healthy number of fosterers is imperative for us.
Adoption is similar to fostering as regards caring for the animal. However, adoption is a permanent arrangement.
We are a non-profit, charity organisation registered in Ireland. Please support us by contributing. Your contributions help to ensure we continue to re-home unwanted, neglected, abused and abandoned dogs.
