About Cara Rescue Dogs

cara_icon

Cara Rescue Dogs is a voluntary community group with charitable status. Formed in 2011 by a small group of people in Co. Laois with a shared love of animals.
Since its inception, Cara Rescue Dogs has re-homed over 1,000 dogs and we have an average of 60 dogs in our care at any one time.
While the centre of our operation is in the Laois area, our fostering network extends throughout most of Leinster.

The volunteers of Cara work tirelessly in an effort to prevent animal cruelty in the region and re-home unwanted and abandoned dogs. Cara take unwanted, stray, neglected dogs and puppies into their care and then provide them with foster homes until permanent ‘forever homes’ can be secured.

The benefit of this system of working is that each and every dog available for adoption has experienced a proper slice of home life and as such we're then uniquely positioned to let potential adopters know valuable information about how the dogs cope with various situations and how they interact in the real world and thus help to find the perfect match.

The care is provided through a network of foster homes thanks to an army of volunteers who give of their time and affection freely to help these dogs feel safe, secure and loved as they await their ‘forever home’.

Every care is taken to ensure that these animals, many of whom have not been treated well are placed in homes which are truly deserving of their loyalty and love. All steps possible are taken to ensure that the particular dog is a good fit for the adopting family taking into consideration children, other animals, space etc.

Cara Rescue Dogs also provide short term care to dogs who have been ‘found’ in the area until such time as they can be reunited with their owners.

When space allows within the foster home network Cara work alongside dog pounds to take dogs into their care for rehoming.

Cara Rescue Dogs is a 100% voluntary run non profit organisation and therefore relies heavily on donations. Please give what you can to enable Cara Rescue Dogs to continue this vital work.

Hi I'm charlee and I'm the biggest snuggle monster in the world. I'm 2 years old and the best boy! I love everyone, other doggies and treats I really love treats. I've poor vision but that doesn't stop me living life to the fullest! I still do everything that my foster brother and sister do it really doesn't bother me. I'll even play fetch and use my nose to try find the ball. I love going on walks too and am good on the lead. Plus I know how to sit, stay and lie down!
I'm going to an eye specialist next week to have my eyes looked at. My foster family love me so much and really want to find the most amazing and special home for me where I will be loved for the rest of my life. I would love a home where I have company through out the day, human or canine. I'm really loyal and love my people so I promise I will love you back. If you think you can offer me a 5 star home please contact Cara rescue ❤️ love Charlee the food loving labrador. Charlee is microchipped, vaccinated and neutered.

LIAM, REBECCA and BRIAN
these 3 tiny pups came to us from the pound the other day after spending the required 5 days in there, sadly all 3 are now under veterinary care on intravenous fluids and antibiotics.
Tiny vulnerable pups are sure to pick up something in pounds with so many other dogs...
Please keep these puppies in your thoughts and send some positive thought their way❤️❤️
Keep fighting babies, your foster families love you and need you to get better🙏🙏🙏
