Adopt A Dog

PAWS Adoption Policy

1. Our dogs are rehomed as indoor pets only.
2. Your garden should be fully enclosed by walls or secure fencing (not hedges) . We do not place dogs in homes that use electric/Radio/shock fencing.
3. If there is nobody at home all day (two dogs are required) as lone dogs get bored & destructive.
4. Children over seven years only. This is for your child’s protection because w
e have no idea of the dogs history with children.
5. There is a pre-adoption home-check carried out for all dogs.

We are open 2 to 4 pm seven days a week for visitors

We always have over 70 dogs on site. As we do not have the manpower to photograph them all or the time to upload all the pictures, please visit our kennels near Kilkenny anytime during our public opening hours (2 pm-4 pm 7 days a week), email us at or call us on 052 9153507 and we will do our best to match you with the right dog.

All dogs will be neutered, vaccinated, flea-treated and wormed before rehoming, this costs us on average 180 euro, so please understand why our minimum donation for adoption is 120 euro, anything over that is greatly appreciated.
