I have been apart of Cara Rescue Dogs for many years now, volunteering and fostering many dogs. I cannot recommend fostering a rescue doggie enough, to give a dog a second chance at life, to teach them that not all humans are selfish, abusive or ignorant. It is so very rewarding seeing each dog learn to love and trust again. Together we can all make a differnce through fundraising or fostering. Below is some information on adopting a dog from Cara, adopt don’t shop! 

All dogs will be fully vaccinated, wormed, microchipped, spayed /neutered (once 6 months) and in good health before being placed in a ‘forever home’. A ‘Home Check’ will be carried out prior to placement of any dog to ensure a safe environment, fully enclosed garden etc.

A charge of €120 will apply which will make a contribution towards the cost of general care and  veterinary care / procedures carried out whilst in the care of Cara Rescue Dogs. A fee of €80 will apply for puppies (under the age of 6 months) as they will not have been neutered at the time of adoption. Please note that as part of the adoption contract, all puppies must be neutered once they reach 6 months of age. You will be required to provide evidence of same.

Once an adoption has been agreed a contract will be signed between the adoptive family and Cara which clearly states  that should the adoption not work  out the dog will be returned to the care of Cara Rescue Dogs.

Every assistance will be provided by Cara Rescue Dogs to ensure a smooth transition from their care to the ‘forever home’ during the settling in period.
