HUGE DEMAND FOR OUR HELP
We’ve experienced an unprecedented influx of animals lately – pregnant mothers abandoned days from whelping, unwanted pups and adult dogs dumped in secluded areas, cats and kittens from all across the county, sick and injured pups who have known only cruelty in their short lives.
Every day seems to bring more heartache, more poor babies needing a safe refuge.
We are really struggling to cope with the volume of animals needing help this month; we currently have 27 pups under 4 months of age and 28 adult dogs in our care, the cattery is overflowing with cats and kittens needing homes.
Our resources are stretched to breaking point; we are working from morning til night just to care for them all.
Please, please spay and neuter your pets – the unwanted pet situation in Ireland is beyond crisis point and rescues nationwide are buckling under the pressure.
If you are thinking about adding a new pet to your family, please remember, Adopt – don’t shop!
