What we do

 At the Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline, we help lost pets find their way home.

What We Do

At The Munster Lost and Found Pet Helpline (RCN: 20074630), we help lost pets find their way home. Since our foundation, we’ve reunited hundreds of pets with their families, and found loving new homes for many more. We seek to reunite lost pets with their owners through our helpline and database of lost and found pets in Munster. Our helpline provides practical advice on responsible pet ownership to all pet owners, as well as those who have lost or found a pet and are unsure of what to do.

In emergency situations, we provide shelter for stray pets, either at our small rescue centre in Cork, or with one of our foster families. If an owner is not found, we find loving new permanent homes that are thoroughly checked before the pet is adopted. We have a small group of dedicated volunteers who work with our rescues, helping to prepare them for new homes by spending time with them and socialising them. Every pet that we rehome is neutered or spayed, as well as being fully vaccinated and microchipped. We will never allow a healthy animal in our care to be destroyed.

 

How We Are Funded

We are an entirely voluntary organisation – every cent we raise goes directly to caring for the dogs and cats we’ve taken in, as well as keeping the helpline up and running.

We are very grateful to receive a sum of ex-gratia funding which we apply for from the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine yearly. This grant helps us to pay for veterinary care, to make repairs to our shelter accommodation and to maintain our helpline telephone lines. The latest grant received was €12,000 in December 2021.

However, this grant covers a fraction of our annual expenditure on veterinary bills and operating expenses for our helpline and small shelter. This means we are hugely dependant on the generosity of our supporters  in order to continue our work. We are incredibly grateful for any donations we receive; every euro donated is a huge help! Click here to find out how you can help us.
