Dogs and cats available for adoption

This is the page where we post details of dogs and cats available for adoption. However, for a more up-to-date version, please check out our Facebook page, which is updated daily.  All of our animals are spayed/neutered; vaccinated; wormed and microchipped. Cats are tested for FIV (feline AIDS). Thankfully, most are negative, but even those who test positive can live to a ripe old age in an indoor home.

December 2018

We have two gorgeous greyhound girls, Ann and Ali, who have been here at the Sanctuary for over a year.  They would dearly love their own sofas to curl up on in time for Christmas. Contrary to popular belief, greyhounds are quite lazy and would happily sleep most of the day. They do love a walk though, or off-lead in a safe place is heaven to them.

Please contact us if you think you could offer Ann or Ali, or both, a loving forever home.

vicky timothy and henry

Vicky, Timothy, Henry.

Vicky is a young female collie mix, extremely intelligent and loving. She would do best in a home where she’ll receive lots of stimulation (agility classes would be ideal!)  She does not do well with cats.  UPDATE – Vicky has been rehomed.

Timothy is a young mixed breed dog, who needs his own person to love! He is not happy in kennels and would love to curl up on a sofa in his own home. 13/03/15 UPDATE – Timothy is still waiting for his forever sofa.

Henry is a lurcher type, found on a roadside with his buddy, Alfie (who’s just been rehomed in Paris!), starving, emaciated and so weak he could not stand up.  Henry is now in great condition, but needs more one to one contact.  He would probably be best suited to a home with no other dogs, as he can be bullied, especially by male dogs.  13/03.15 UPDATE – Henry is still waiting for his forever sofa.

Matilda (photo to follow) is a small, lurcher type, really pretty, and desperately in need of her own home.  She is very affectionate, and loves her cuddles. 13/03/15 UPDATE – Matilda is still waiting for a new family.

gracie & isabelle

Gracie and Isabelle

Gracie and Isabelle are two tiny pups, who we found in dreadful conditions following this year’s Ballinasloe Horse Fair.  They are approximately 6/7 weeks old, and will be looking for their forever homes (preferably together) in the next few weeks. They have been wormed, defleaed and vaccinated, and will, of course, be spayed in due course.  They are lurcher/spaniel types, and will grow into beautiful dogs. 13/03/15 UPDATE – Gracie and Isabelle have been rehomed.

hughie, dewey, louie

Hughie, Dewey, Louis

These three delightful black kittens were found on a roadside, soaking wet and starving. Their mother was nowhere to be found, so we brought them back to the Sanctuary and have given them lots of TLC.  These previously feral cats are now purr machines, who love to cuddle up on a lap.  They are neutered, vaccinated, wormed and tested negative for FIV. 13/03/15 UPDATE – The brothers are still waiting for a new home. They are great for keeping rodents away!



This little sweetheart is Heidi, who is about 7 or 8 months old. She’s spayed, wormed, vaccinated, and FIV negative.  She really wants her own family to love, as she is so affectionate and just adores being held and petted.
