The KWWSPCA is delighted to let you know that it has purchased land close to Kildare Town to build its permanent home. It is a 15-acre green field site.  The Society has been renting a cottage, a farm building and land near Athgarvan for the past nine years as its Shelter, but for the last few years has been looking for its own premises and this site seems ideal.

The Society has now to go through the planning process, which might take some time, but if it is successful in its planning application, it will build a state-of-the-art animal welfare facility to cater primarily for dogs and cats, but it also intends to have facilities for other rescue animals.

The KWWSPCA owes a huge thank you to all its loyal supporters who have organised fund raising events, attended these events, made donations, and purchased items in its Charity Shop, Noah’s Ark, and at its online sales and auctions.  This has enabled the Society to accumulate sufficient funds to purchase this site.  More fund-raising will, of course, be needed once the Society gets the required planning permission and is able to start preparing the site and to start building.
