Welcome to PAWS

PAWS Animal Rescue is a wholly Irish Charity (CHY12312) established in 1997. We are dedicated to rescuing homeless and abandoned animals, primarily dogs from high-kill pounds and owners who can no longer care for them.

By working with our committed employees, volunteers, local Veterinary surgeons and overseas adoption groups we are able to rescue hundreds of animals every year, provide them with loving temporary care, and find them well-matched, carefully screened forever homes.

We also serve as a resource to the public by providing education and information on responsible pet ownership, including the importance of spay/neuter, microchipping and Veterinary care.

With approximately 90 dogs in our care at any one time we rely heavily on the generosity of the public to fund and continue our work.
Please help us to help those that cannot help themselves.
