Cara Rescue Dogs always have an abundance of beautiful dogs and pups which are eagerly awaiting their ‘forever home’…a  place where they will become an integral part of the family (or a dear companion for an individual) and receive the love and care that they truly deserve in exchange for the kind of love and loyalty only a dog can give in return.

Just like humans, dogs have differing personalities and needs and every effort will be made to ensure that the adopting family and the dog fit together well. As the dogs are cared for through the Foster Home Network, the foster families get a great insight into the dogs personality and behaviour and therefore are in a position to provide all the necessary information to prospective adoptive families and answer any questions or address any concerns which they may have.

All dogs will be fully vaccinated, wormed, microchipped, spayed /neutered (once 6 months) and in good health before being placed in a ‘forever home’. A ‘Home Check’ will be carried out prior to placement of any dog to ensure a safe environment, fully enclosed garden etc.

A charge of €120 will apply which will make a contribution towards the cost of general care and  veterinary care / procedures carried out whilst in the care of Cara Rescue Dogs. A fee of €80 will apply for puppies (under the age of 6 months) as they will not have been neutered at the time of adoption. Please note that as part of the adoption contract, all puppies must be neutered once they reach 6 months of age. You will be required to provide evidence of same.

Once an adoption has been agreed a contract will be signed between the adoptive family and Cara which clearly states  that should the adoption not work  out the dog will be returned to the care of Cara Rescue Dogs. Every assistance will be provided by Cara Rescue Dogs to ensure a smooth transition from their care to the ‘forever home’ during the settling in period.

If you would like to adopt a dog, please complete the online application form.

A Cara volunteer will contact you in due course to discuss your requirements.
