Our Organisation

Inistioge Puppy Rescue is a non-profit animal rescue organization based in Inistioge, Co. Killkenny, Ireland. Puppy Rescue is a home run organisation. Registered Charity No: CHY 13987

The aim of our organisation is to protect against and prevent animal cruelty and abandonment.

We provide temporary care for many pound dogs, as well as other unwanted pets, until such time as the animals can be suitably re-homed. We have a strict no-kill policy.

Make Room In Your Heart

I know that you still search for me
thin the room; by the fireside
Eyes alight with hope reflected
In the flames, and tears you’ve cried.

But I am not, and cannot be
Laid by your side another day,
For your bonded love has set me free
Letting my wounded soul fly far away.

But still I see you growing older
Day by day the greyness showing
In a world that’s getting colder
Each step you take; loneliness growing.

I also see my kindred kind
Who shiver and weep upon the path
Knowing not their state of mind
Betrayed by the humans that they had.

Thrown by bushes and left to roam
Or caged in pounds without a home
These lonely dogs know nothing of
The life we shared; the home; the love.

So now I need to ask of you
A friendly favour, perhaps overdue.
Won’t you open your heart to take one in,
And let the love of man and dog begin.
