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.
We rescue dogs and place them in a loving foster home until we can find them a forever home.
Since its inception, Cara Rescue Dogs has re-homed over 1,000 dogs and we have an average of 60 dogs and puppies 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 including Dublin area.

How Cara Rescue Dogs Works

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 of rescue dogs 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.

Lainey is looking for a very special home ❤️❤️❤️
Lainey is an 7-8 year old female German Shepherd. She is a loyal, friendly girl who adores the humans she trusts. She can be wary of other people but is happy in their company once they give her time and space.
Lainey gets on great with other dogs.. Big or small, male or female. And she loves to play with them.
Her ideal home would be a quiet adult home, with humans who will be kind, gentle and willing to put some work into training her and helping her gain her confidence. A bonus would be a home with another friendly dog.
Lainey is house trained and crate trained, she also knows sit and paw. She will walk on the lead but needs some training and confidence building with this. Lainey is a medium energy girl and would like a daily walk. She is a high risk of bolting so can never be allowed off lead.
Lainey has been spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. She will be ready for adoption in a few weeks. If you are interested in adopting her please email caraadoptions@hotmail.com

She is full of energy and will need someone who can dedicate time and patience to her, she is very clever and responds well to commands is mostly toilet trained but does have accidents when excited. She loves to chew so will need plenty of toys. She is unsure around other dogs until she gets to know them, she doesn't like cats, she can be quite timid at times but is very people friendly and just wants to please, she needs someone who will love her as much as she loves them, a beautiful dog with a beautiful soul.

This is Tayto. He is a great little boy. Tayto is 2.5 years young. He is much smaller in person than his pictures look. Tayto loves to play with all female dogs. He likes to play with toys and loves to follow a ball. He is full of energy and loves to play all day. He is best suited to a home with older kids because he's so liveky. Once he attaches to you he just wants to please you. He would be happy with another female dog or as an only dog. He will love his human so much, he loves a cuddle on the couch beside you watching Tv or just pottering around behind you. He really is a great little lad.
If you would like to make an application to adopt this little boy please email caraadoptions@hotmail.com
