Limerick Animal Welfare

  • Limerick Animal Welfare Dog Walking

Limerick Animal Welfare is a registered charity, founded in 1983, dedicated to caring for abandoned and neglected animals in the Limerick area. 

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. 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. Visitors are welcome Monday to Sunday, seven days a week from 11am to 3pm.

We also have two shops in Limerick City. Our shops are on Parnell Street & William Street, Limerick and are 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.

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 and see all the animals. You are welcome to walk a dog, pet a cat, take a stroll through the beautiful gravel walkways which wind through the fields and you will experience the extraordinary views of the surrounding countryside and the Ballyhoura Hills.You will see our rescue ponies, goats and pigs chickens and rabbits who have come to us for sanctaury until they find their new homes.

We also welcome educational school visits which can be arranged by pre booking.  

We welcome help any day of the week and we really appreciate the extra help at the weekend when we have less people to help feed and care for all our 200 animals. If you are over 18 years old and would like to volunteer, you can contact us on 063 91110 or email us about any queries you may have about the work involved.

Every little helps and we appreciate anything you are willing to help us with. Your contribution will place another animal in a safe, secure home.

Call or come and visit us soon!
