Shirley's Abandoned Cat and Dog Rescue


We strive to provide a safe haven for any abused, unwanted, abandoned animals of Athlone. We ensure all these animals, once nursed back to health through veterinary care and good nutrition, are fully vaccinated, micro-chipped and neutered before rehoming. We are a non-profit organisation, 100% of donations received will go directly to provide care, shelter and nutrition for our animals. We aim to reduce the population of stray animals through discount neutering and micro-chipping for the public, along with the TNR (trap, neuter, release) scheme for feral cats throughout Athlone.

If you would like to adopt or foster a rescue animal, please contact us. Donations towards vet bills can be made directly to Glasson vets by postal order or by phone (credit/debit card) on 090 6439986.

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.
