At our rescue based in Carrowdore, County Down; we care for rescued cats and dogs. We also have dogs that have permanent residency and found their forever home here at the BARN.

We rescue & rehome

We are solely able to carry out our animal welfare work thanks to the kindness & generosity of our friends within the community, their support is vital. The BARN believes that networking is an important factor towards the healthy running of our Rescue. The veritable back bone of our existence, is our ability to communicate with other community welfare groups. Animal welfare groups, other Rescues & Shelters and foster caregivers throughout Northern Ireland & Eire.

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.
