Adopt a Pet:

Dogs  |  Cats

We are urgently seeking to re-home our dogs, cats and other animals with families that will love and cherish them.

If you are interested in taking one of our animals please make an appointment to visit us at the sanctuary and give an animal a good home for the rest of its lifetime.

However, the decision to adopt a pet should not be taken lightly, as our aim is to find long term homes for each animal. In other words our animals need to be adopted not fostered. That is not to say animals cannot be returned, however this should only be done if the owner genuinely cannot take care of the animal any longer. So, please do take time to consider if you really do have the time/resources to adopt a pet and give it the home it deserves.

Rehoming a pet from us:

We will ask you to fill out a Home Finder Form and one of our representatives will be in contact with you soon after your booking.

For dogs it is necessary to have a fully secure garden of a suitable size for the dog you wish to choose. One of our representatives will be in contact with you and will visit you for your home check.

Sometimes people, for whatever reason, cannot continue to keep their own pets.  Rather than bringing them to the Sanctuary they are happy to hold onto their pets until someone will come forward to give a home to them.


There are often new pets up for adoption.  Please contact us for details.  You can also find details of pets for adoption in the Wicklow People newspaper most weeks.


Below is just a small selection of the pets available for adoption! If you can't make up your mind, why not come take a look - they'd be happy to see you!
