KILDARE ANIMAL FOUNDATION: Our dogs looking for forever homes

One of the dogs available for adoption

It’s February at last. I’m sure like me you thought January was never going to end.

Life is starting to come back to the world around us. Snowdrops and daffodils are starting to shoot up. You can hear the mating calls of foxes. Spring is coming.

Should you see dandelions starting to flower, please leave them alone. They are the first food of our native bees and we need to do what we can to save them.

Without bees and insects, we really are in trouble. If you’re interested in all types of nature from bees to birds, then please check out Wild Kildare on Facebook. It is run by an enthusiastic and caring group of people.

They have lots of plans and events for 2019, so get out and get some fresh air and help Kildare’s wildlife.

Dogs for adoption

We have 35 dogs looking for new and wonderful homes. Please come visit us any day between 2pm and 4pm and meet them.

They could change your life for the best. All our animals for adoption are microchipped, neutered, parasite treated, vaccinated and vet checked.

A home visit is a must and an adoption of just €90 is required.


Darwin is one of the shy ones…. especially when it comes to his photo being taken. But once he gets to know you, he is very affectionate. He arrived to us as a stray dog. He is a medium-sized dog, a young collie of mixed breed, around three years of age. He is very good on the lead and shows no interest in cats.


Wolfie is a five-or-six-year-old mixed breed. He has been with us for some time now and is always overlooked.

We don’t know why as he is one of the volunteers’ favourites. Wolfie needs an active home where he can be a member of the family.

He is good with female dogs but does not like cats. He would suit a home with older children.


Eve is, a shy and gentle girl who is looking for a very special home. She is around two years old and is a lab mix. She is small-to-medium-sized. She is good with other dogs. She needs a nice understanding home where someone is at home most of the time and can give her the time and affectionate she needs to come out of her shell. Please feel free to contact us if you could give a home to any of these dogs.
