Limerick Animal Welfare - 063-91110 - 087-6371044 - CHARITY NUMBER - CHY 11598





Welcome to LAW! We rescue and rehome dogs, cats, rabbits, horses and many other animals when they find themselves homeless through no fault of their own. We have a no-kill policy. The animals remain in our care until we find the right homes for them.

Animals for rehoming are cared for at our Field of Dreams Sanctuary in Kilfinane, County Limerick (phone 063 91110). Visitors are welcome Monday to Saturday, 11am to 3pm. We also have two shops in Limerick City. Our shop on Parnell Street is open Monday to Saturday, 10am to 4pm. The shop welcomes offers of good quality clothing and many other items for sale, which in turn helps to fund our Sanctuary. Our second shop, on 51 Roches Street, opened 1st December 2010. We are in the process of expanding our facilities in The Field of Dreams Sanctuary, Kilfinane, so that we can help even more animals. Come and visit us sometime. We have many dogs who would like to accompany you on a walk on our grounds and some ponies, goats and pigs who love visitors. We also welcome educational school visits which can be arranged by ringing the sanctuary. If you would like to volunteer your services, we would love to hear from you, whether you just want to walk a dog or help with painting and general maintenance. Every little helps to place another animal in a safe secure home. Call or come and visit us soon.





WE STRIVE TO HAVE OUR SANCTUARY BUILDINGS FINISHED IN THE COMING YEARS.
This is what the buildings will look like when completed.

MY NAME IS PACO & I NEED A HOME

SPECIAL BOY PACO NEEDS A HOME
Paco is a four year old, male terrier. He is our longest stay dog at LAW. Poor Paco is in the care of LAW for one year. He should be in a home but sadly he is overlooked time and time again. Paco came in with a deformed front leg with had to be amputated to make him more comfortable and aid his balance. He is a bossy boy but we all love Paco and want him to have a family of his own. Have you a nice enclosed country garden where Paco can potter about and enjoy his life. We dont think he will live with cats but he can go for short walks.

HALLOWEEN



PLEASE KEEP YOUR PETS SAFE THIS HALLOWEEN
Friday 31st October is Halloween night, over this week end we will see people enjoying the celebrations and we would like to offer some advise to keep your pets stress free and protected so that both you and your pets can enjoy "A Scary Night"
*Keep your pets indoors and in a familiar room. Pets have a heightened sense of hearing so the jolts and loud noises cause many animals to flee in search of safe haven.
*Keep all doors and windows closed and draw the curtains to reduce the noise. Supply pets with enough food and water and ensure someone can stay with them to comfort them.
*Take dogs for a walk during the daytime before the celebrations begin. Never walk them near where others are lighting firecrackers. Consult a veterinarian if pets are prone to acute anxiety or distress from loud noises.
*Make a first aid kit in preparation for helping injured animals. Have a bucket full of water handy for emergency and for putting used sparklers into. Ensure pets are wearing collars and identification tags with current contact information. All pets, even those kept indoors, should wear collars with identification tags at all times.
*Keep contact information for local dog pound and surrounding animal welfare shelters handy and approach them immediately in cases of lost pets. If you find a lost pet, either take her to the address on the tag or take to any vet to check for a microchip(at no cost to you), place a photo of the missing of found animal on our Lost and Found Facebook Page and contact any local animal shelter to leave details of the animal until owners are found.
We wish you all a safe and Happy Halloween
Please keep your furry friends safe of the "Scary Season"

WOULD YOU LIKE TO BECOME A VOLUNTEER WITH LAW ?

We have an animal sanctuary in the beautiful Ballyhoura Hills where we keep over 200 animals, dogs, cats, rabbits, goats, horses and donkeys.
To become a volunteer with LAW you need to be over 16 years old. We have induction days every Monday and Tuesday with senior staff who will take you through all aspects of feeding, cleaning, and care giving to the animals.
How do you become a volunteer? Firstly give us a ring on 087 6371044 during office hours and we will make an appointment for you to come to the sanctuary.
On arrival you will need to view our health and safety video and the staff will tell you about the fire regulations. You will then fill a volunteer form. Training will be given by senior staff who will show you the correct way to care give, feed the animals and clean in the kennels.
As you advance you will learn how we examine the animals on entry, how we treat the dogs for fleas & worms and how we vaccinate and give kennel cough.
For those who are very interested in the welfare of animals, the volunteering programme will be a friendly and education experience.
You will be presented with a Volunteering Certificate on completion of 10 days working in the sanctuary over a ten week period.
We also have dog walking volunteers who come just to walk dogs. This is also a great help to the dogs who have had operations and need careful controlled walks.
Please contact us on 087 6371044 and we will book you in for training as a volunteer with LAW.




UPDATE: NEW BUILDING HAS STARTED


WE ARE DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE THAT PHASE TWO OF OUR BUILDING PROJECT HAS STARTED.
This will give us a professional base at our Sanctuary in Kilfinane, Co. Limerick. The centre of the building on site will be the first part to be completed, giving us a reception area, office and veterinary room. These facilities will be invaluable to LAW.
The outside of the building will be cleared, roadway and footpaths will be put down. Electrics and heating will be installed.
A visitors centre, remembrance garden and picnic area will also be in place. This will give us a much more visitor friendly facility where the general public and tours can come to visit. A talk and power point presentation on the welfare of animals and the work involved in rescue will be on site. General visitors can spend an afternoon in a pleasant environment and enjoy refreshments in our visitors centre. We are open seven days a week and expect with this part of the facility in place it will bring a lot more people to LAW. How can you help?

You may have some fashion pieces which would like to donate, hats, scarves, handbags and facinators and hair pieces.
All will be very welcome at any of our shops.

PLEASE TAG OR CHIP YOUR ANIMALS

We are working non stop to try and unite lost dogs with owners but this work which takes up countless hours outside the working day could be avoided if owners took responsibility and cared enough for their pets. PLEASE put an I.D. tag with your number on your dog and microchip if at all possible. Rescue space is precious and sadly we are not in a position to take in the countless stray dogs who have no identification on them. For just a couple of Euro and you don't even have to leave you house, you can order these great tags online. Click here to order Tags

WHAT'S ALL THIS ABOUT A HOMECHECK?


Many people are still confused as to what we mean by a fully-enclosed back garden. In simple terms, it means your garden must be "dog-proof" so that the dog cannot get out and run loose. Only a walled or suitably fenced garden (no chicken wire) high enough to prevent the dog jumping out will pass one of our homechecks.


A hedge will not do on its own because a determined dog will force its way through or under a hedge. We rely on volunteers to do homechecks for us - please don't waste their time. Before you reserve one of our dogs, do what ever work is needed to ensure your garden will fulfil our requirements. We cannot accept a dog run or invisible fence system as a substitute for a secure boundary. Please understand that we insist on these criteria purely for the dogs' sake. A lot of the dogs in our care end up with us because they've wandered away from home. In many cases, these dogs suffer severe injuries in road traffic accidents while they are roaming, and LAW are left to pick up the pieces. By law it is your duty to ensure that your dog remains on your property and is not allowed out in public unsupervised. LAW promotes responsible dog ownership. We must ensure that our dogs will be safe in their new homes.
