Galway Cat Rescue


Galway Cat Rescue is an all-volunteer group of animal lovers. We are committed to helping homeless cats in Galway and dedicated to give every cat a chance to live a safe, healthy and happy life. We established Galway Cat Rescue in August 2010, because we were frustrated that not enough was being done to help feral cats in our neighborhoods. Since then we have neutered more than 800 cats and have been successful in re-homing more than 500. We also care for numerous abandoned and injured cats and kittens.


GCR has been officially registered as a non-profit charity (CHY 19772) since July 2011.


Educating and informing the public about the care of cats and the importance of spaying and neutering their pets is one of our priorities. Our mission is to solve the Galway feral cat overpopulation crisis through the humane, non-lethal method of Trap-Neuter-Return (TNR).

About Rescue Animals Ireland

My name is Maureen Ryan and I want to share everything I know about rescue animals to help you take better care of yours! I grew up raising rabbits, cats and dogs and have learned a lot over the years. I have also spend many years volunteering for my local rescues. Hopefully, my articles are helpful and as you read them you'll learn a little more about rescue pets.
