Adopt a Dog


We usually have a number of dogs available for rehoming at our animal shelter in Athgarvan in County Kildare, and sometimes we also have other dogs in foster homes who are available for adoption. Their details are given below.  Because of the Covid-19 travel and safety restrictions the Shelter is closed to visitors at the moment, so if you have any queries about adoption please call 087-1279835 or email kwwspcadogrehoming@gmail.com. There is more detailed information about how our adoption process works on our Adoption Process page.   The KWWSPCA and its premises at Oldtown, Athgarvan, Co. Kildare, are registered with the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine in accordance with the Animal Health and Welfare (Sale or Supply of Pet Animals) Regulations 2019 and the Registration Number is IPT200001C.  The Registered Charity Number of the KWWSPCA is CHY 6280 and our Charities Regulatory Number is 20011048.  All our rescue dogs originate in Ireland.
