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 have other dogs in foster homes who are available for adoption. Their details are given below.  If you see a dog that you think you might like to adopt, please click on the following link, complete the ‘Expression of Interest Form’ and return the completed form to kwwspcadogrehoming@gmail.com.  The KWWSPCA Animal Shelter is closed to visitors without an appointment.  Once we have received your Expression of Interest Form and our Dog Rehoming Team feel you could offer the right home for one of our rescue dogs, then an appointment to see the dog can be made.
