puppy farms in Ireland

Did you know Ireland is considered the Puppy Farm Capital of Europe?

What is a puppy farm? 

A puppy farm is a commercial dog breeding facility that is operated with an emphasis upon profits above animal welfare and is often in substandard conditions regarding the well-being of dogs in their care. Due to the frequently poor breeding conditions in puppy farms, puppies bred there often suffer from health and/or social problems. Puppies raised in a cramped environment shared by many other dogs become poorly socialized to other dogs and to humans. 

adopt a rabbit Ireland

I had a number of rabbits as a child and I was lucky enough to recently adopt a fantastic rabbit named Rita(pictured left) from MADRA in Galway. Rita* is around six years old. She was left behind in a garden to fend for herself when her previous owners moved away. Not a great situation for a small creature to be in! Luckily she was picked up before she was harmed or killed. Rabbits can be a great pet if you know how to care for them.

My puppy farm dog - Seymour


My reason for setting up the page and for getting involved in animal rescue is simple. I love animals and want to help them as much as I can. So knowing that I bought a puppy farmed dog is a bit depressing. Here is Seymour’s story:

Not everyone has the animals best intentions at heart. Some may have started out this way but have developed into an animal hoarding situation, or take donations but do not put the money towards the animals in their care. They may also be more interested in the praise they get.

Everyone involved in rescue needs to ask questions because the animals are counting on you to make sure they are safe.

Here are some warning signs to watch for before you work with or donate to a rescue:



Please note we do not rehome any animals ourselves. Please contact the advertiser or your local rescues directly.
