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.

Jonty is a 12 week old male terrier puppy. He is a friendly, playful puppy who is full of fun and loves carrying things around and brining them to his bed 😂
He is friendly with dogs, cats and kids. He would love to join an active home where he can get a daily walk or some form of exercise. He would love a home with another dog, or a dog free home with human company most of the time.
Jonty has been microchipped, fully vaccinated and is ready for adoption. If you're interested in adopting him, please email caraadoptions@hotmail.com

Pablo is an approximately 3 year old male lurcher. He is fully toilet and lead trained. He is very gentle on the lead

He is great with children, though can be a little nervous around men at the beginning, but quickly warms to them. Loves other dogs but has not had any contact with cats.

A medium energy dog, who likes a nice 30 minute walk during the day, but would thrive where he could be let run even a couple of times a week. A real lover of laying out in of the sun.

Can follow simple instructions such as Sit, Wait, Paw, go to bed. (He is made to sit and give paw before each meal/snack is presented)

Adores his comforts and has only ever slept indoors. Really loves to cuddle up with his human (of any size) on the sofa (or sneak off to an open bedroom).

He does not like to travel in my car, due to its confined space.

Can be left for periods of time at home with a radio on.

He is a very loving dog.

Contact caraadoptions@hotmail.com if you are interested in adopting him. Pablo is neutered, vaccinated and microchipped.
