A Special Thanks to all of the people that have rehomed dogs from us in the past number of weeks, months and years. We hope you are very happy with them. It is our aim to rehome as many dogs as possible within the criteria within which we have to work. So come on folks if your looking for a dog call to us here at the Carlow Kilkenny Dog Shelter, we will do our best to help you.
The Carlow – Kilkenny Dog Shelter is a modern facility which is a joint venture between Carlow County Council and Kilkenny County Council, from which the Carlow – Kilkenny Dog Warden Service operates.
It is situated just off the N10 at Garryduff, Paulstown, Co Kilkenny.
The Carlow – Kilkenny Dog Warden Service is funded by both Local Authorities.
It fulfils both Local Authorities statutory obligations under the Control of Dogs Act 1986.
