Useful Information

Did you know Ireland is considered the Puppy Farm Capital of Europe?

What is a puppy farm? 

A puppy farm is a commercial dog breeding facility that is operated with an emphasis upon profits above animal welfare and is often in substandard conditions regarding the well-being of dogs in their care. Due to the frequently poor breeding conditions in puppy farms, puppies bred there often suffer from health and/or social problems. Puppies raised in a cramped environment shared by many other dogs become poorly socialized to other dogs and to humans. 

Rita Rabbit - Adopted from MADRAI had a number of rabbits as a child and I was lucky enough to recently adopt a fantastic rabbit named Rita(pictured left) from MADRA in Galway. Rita* is around six years old. She was left behind in a garden to fend for herself when her previous owners moved away. Not a great situation for a small creature to be in! Luckily she was picked up before she was harmed or killed. Rabbits can be a great pet if you know how to care for them.

 

My puppy farm dog - Seymour

 

My reason for setting up the page and for getting involved in animal rescue is simple. I love animals and want to help them as much as I can. So knowing that I bought a puppy farmed dog is a bit depressing. Here is Seymour’s story:

Not everyone has the animals best intentions at heart. Some may have started out this way but have developed into an animal hoarding situation, or take donations but do not put the money towards the animals in their care. They may also be more interested in the praise they get.

Everyone involved in rescue needs to ask questions because the animals are counting on you to make sure they are safe.

Here are some warning signs to watch for before you work with or donate to a rescue:

Adopt

 
Thinking of getting a new pet? You have come to the right place. Search our animal adverts to find the right pet for you. If you don't see one to suit you listed just yet we also have most of Ireland's many rescues and pounds listed in our directory so that you can get in touch with them easily. 
 

Rehome

 
Have you come to the difficult decision to find a new home for your pet? Found an abandoned pet and want to find a new home for it? Or are you running an animal rescue or pound and want to find homes for the animals in your care? No matter what the situation we can help. Just register for free to post a listing on our animal adverts
 

Foster

 
Would you love to have a pet but can't commit to one for its life time? Fostering is a great alternative. It helps to get a pet ready for its new home and also frees up space at the animal rescue so that they can take in more pets in need. Get in touch with your local rescues for details for more information on how to foster. 
 

Volunteer

 
Have you got some free time and love animals. Most rescues are in need of help. You can walk dogs, play with cats or organise a fundraising event. There are lots of options. Get in touch with your local rescue to see what help they need.
