About the centre
Leitrim Animal Welfare was established in 1997 by Christine Coulson and has developed into one of the largest rescue centres in Ireland, housing up to 100 dogs at any one time at our Drumkeerin base in North Co. Leitrim. In January 2004, LAW also took over the operation of the Dog Pound for Co. Leitrim after a successful six month trial period..
Phenomenally successful in re-homing stray dogs, with more than 95% of dogs arriving at the shelter successfully re-homed, Leitrim Animal Welfare operates a "no kill" policy for both its Dog Pound operation and Rescue Centre, meaning all healthy animals stay put until homes are found for them.
We at the centre know that there are many more dogs in the North West of Ireland that are desperately seeking refuge and the hope of a new and better home. Every dog that comes to LAW will have at least €150 spent on it before it is re-homed. All our cats are also wormed, vaccinated and neutered before rehoming.
The centre needs funds so that we can carry on rescuing and caring for dogs and cats so, on behalfof the dogs & cats, Please donate as much as you can afford today,
or you could donate €5 for a 5kg food delivery from our friends at DogFoodDirect.ie . Simply visit our page there and follow the instructions.
Alternatively, come and offer a home to one of the dogs or if you can help out at the kennels and can give the greatest gift of time, we would greatly appreciate it.
In addition to the rescue centre Leitrim Animal Welfare also runs a pet boarding service.
All proceeds from both go to helping animals in need.
