Mo Chara Animal Rescue exists to improve the welfare of Irish Animals, particularly those that are abused, neglected and abandoned across Co. Tipperary.
We, at Mo Chara Animal Rescue, take in and provide care for mis-treated, neglected, abandoned and straying animals. Following rehabilitation and/or attempts to reunite animals with their owners, we rehome the animals in our care into loving, carefully vetted homes. All cats and dogs rehomed by us are vaccinated, treated against parasites, microchipped and neutered (unless they are too young to do so at the time).
We respond to reports of animal cruelty across Tipperary and endeavour to resolve them quickly and to the best interest of the animals involved and when needed, we report such cruelty to the relevant authorities or organisation.
We believe that knowledge is power, and so we eagerly provide Youth Education by partaking in School visits to children and teens.
We cooperate with other animal rescues both in Ireland and abroad to maximise the number of animals we can help together.
We also try to help owners responsibly re-home pets that they can no longer look after through advise and advertisment while (when feasible) the animal remains in his/her existing home.
Mo Chara Animal Rescue was founded in 2013 by a group of volunteers who had previously worked together on Animal Welfare Projects.
Our funds are used to feed and shelter the animals in our care.
Every dog/cat who passes through our care is vaccinated, treated against parasites, microchipped and (if old enough) neutered. We also provide veterinary care for any animal that needs it. Our vet bills run into the tens of thousands every year.
All of our committee members are volunteers. We make no financial gain from rescue work.
