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.

Maybe she's born with it...
Yep Robbin sure was born with it, doe eyed little beaut!
Robbin is a year old beautiful lurcher girl who is just the best girl, she loves other dogs and is really good with kids, she also should be a model but is too lazy to work, preferring to laze on the sofa being waited on hand and foot 😂

We are soooo glad Clio isn't made of chocolate as she'd definitely eat herself 😂😂
Who could blame her staring at that face thou, we cannot get enough of this pocket rocket, Clio is 5 months old
And is a scream, she is a very funny little girl who likes to be the joker of the family.
Clio is In foster with both large and small dogs and is getting along just fine and dandy with them all, we do feel due to the exuberance of her wiggle butt older kids maybe best as she may knock over little ones with her fat arse 😂
Please email caraadoptions@hotmail.com for an adoption application for this little poser ❤️❤️

Roxy❤️
Pure perfection, the sweetest most patient proper lady you'll ever meet ❤️Roxy is a 5 year old collie type mixed breed. She's a pure gem. She was brought up with kids and pays no heed to other dogs. She would match well with a laid back dog who minds their own business like she does. Give her a tennis ball and long walks and shes happy, very low maintenance.
Roxy has been spayed, fully vaccinated and microchipped. If you're interested in adopting her please email caraadoptions@hotmail.com 😍
