Collon Animal Sanctuary

We would like to welcome you to the Collon Animal Sanctuary website. The Sanctuary, located in the beautiful village of Collon in Co. Louth, has been in operation for 31 years. Our mission is to take in unwanted , abandoned, abused animals and to rehome them. Over the years we have cared for a large variety of animals, Wolves, Emu, Lynx, Meerkats, Skunks, Snakes,
Spiders and many many more. Our primary function is rehoming Dogs, Cats, Rabbits and the usual domestic pets. At any point in time we have a minimum of 30 Dogs and 20 Cats looking for good homes. If you are looking to adopt an animal please feel free to visit the Sanctuary, there is no need to make an appointment.

We have many beautiful animals here at the Sanctuary looking for a new home. There are Cats and Kittens, Dogs and Puppies, Rabbits, Guinea Pigs all looking for a second chance. If you're contemplating getting a pet please consider giving a rescue animal a second chance. Please have a look at our Facebook Page where you will see some of the Dogs for rehoming. We microchip all dogs leaving the Sanctuary and can also give a voucher for reduced cost neutering.


At present the Sanctuary is dealing with an unprecendented number of animals every day. We are full to capacity and are working our way through a long list of people waiting to surrender animals. Unfortunately we are also dealing with an increasing number of abandoned/abused animals and these have to be given priority. Because of limited space we would ask people on the list to bear with us. If you wish to surrender an animal to the Sanctuary please give us as much notice as possible so that we can plan ahead.
