Animal Care Society


The Animal Care Society (Cork), a registered charity, was formed in October 2000. The aim of the Animal Care Society is stated in its name, to try and provide care to animals in Cork City and County that need our help, as far as our funds and facilities allow us to do so. We are almost entirely made up of volunteers who give their time and effort to help animals.


Through our network of dedicated dog, cat and wildlife fosterers we have rehomed and assisted over 12000 animals since our foundation. We also operate a help line service dealing with animal welfare matters.


In 2017 we spent over twenty thousand (20000 euro) on our vets bills, courtesy of our veterinary guided non-euthanasia policy. We need your support to continue our vital work. Our sanctuary currently has over 130 animals in residence and we desperately need your help.

Please support us by clicking on the donate online now button. 
We accept major credit cards and Laser cards, as well as PayPal and now donations via text messages  as well.
Your help will save a life.

About Rescue Animals Ireland

My name is Maureen Ryan and I want to share everything I know about rescue animals to help you take better care of yours! I grew up raising rabbits, cats and dogs and have learned a lot over the years. I have also spend many years volunteering for my local rescues. Hopefully, my articles are helpful and as you read them you'll learn a little more about rescue pets.
