Saoirse has recently come into the care of the KWWSPCA from the Kildare Dog Pound. She was a very sorry case when she first arrived; she was very underweight, her coat was in a terrible condition and it was obvious she had been living rough for some time and scavenging to survive. She is a boxer cross and we think she is between 2 - 3 years old. When she first came to the KWWSPCA Animal Shelter she was very anxious and nervous about her new surroundings, but within a few days she became a new dog, loving all the attention, regular meals and a warm, dry bed for the night. She became a KWWSPCA favourite, loving her walks and loving the human love and companionship she is being given. She is now living in a foster home bear Athy. She appears to be fine with other dogs and with cats. She has begun to put on weight and she had also begun to put on condition. She has not yet been neutered as she is still too thin but this will be done, together with her vaccinations, before she goes to her new home. If you would like to visit Saoirse an appointment would have to be made to meet her. We ask for a minimum adoption fee of 130 euro when we rehome a dog to partly cover their veterinary and other costs and a home check is needed. A dog licence must also be obtained before the adoption process can be completed; this can be obtained for 20 euro from the Post Office or online from your local County Council. Please call/text 087 6803295 if you would like to find out more about Saorise or would like to make an appointment to meet her.
All cats and dogs from the Kildare & West Wicklow SPCA are fully vaccinated, treated for worms & fleas and neutered (when of age). Dogs from the pound will also be microchipped. We request a rehoming fee of €100 for adult dogs & €75 for pups to partly offset our vet costs. A dog licence must be purchased for any dog originating from the pound'
