We received a call late one night about a young pup huddled against the wall trying to find shelter in an estate in Ballinasloe Town. Glacé arrived to Heathlawn, a sweet natured, gentle, grateful 4/5 month old Pointer x pup. She is exceptionally well behaved for a young pup which is a little sad as […]


Oxo arrived to us last month as a “stray “ with a rope tightly knotted around his neck, leaving a burn mark. But oh what an absolute gent. A young boy, approx a year old, Oxo is just a big bundle of love and affection. He is always looking for a cuddle and as a […]

Habba ❤️❤️

At the beginning of September Habba was picked up on the Dublin to Galway motorway, just outside Moate by a very kind motorist. She had sadly been hit by a car and was suffering with very badly broken back leg. One of our supporters was also travelling on the same motorway but in the opposite […]


Fortune came to us just over a week ago with his two friends after they all found themselves in Galway City Pound. A very handsome Lurcher boy, approx 2 years old, Fortune is a very sweetnatured boy, confident around people thoroughly enjoying their company especially if they want to give him lots of ear rubs!!! […]


Fernie, a four year old Springer, came to us from Mullingar Pound a few weeks ago after she was surrendered by her owner. Fernies previous life was one of being left outside to her own devices, she came to us quite emotionally shut down, underweight and hadn’t a clue what cuddles were. Fernie is one […]

Suhani and Capaldi

Suhani, the young Saluki x girl that we had to sedate in order to catch as she strayed around the Parkmore Industrial Estate in Galway City, has come on in leaps and bounds. She is just the most sweetest, loving and playful girl but best of all she has been a ‘life changer’ for our […]


It’s Wilson!!!!!! Our 6 month old Chihuahua x. Wilson was found over a month ago running scared on the streets of Galway city, only a baby of approx 5 months old With no collar or chip, Wilson definitely looked the worse for wear, underweight, covered in fleas and generally in poor shape. He was lucky […]


Montreal is a GSD/Husky cross who is approximately 14 to 16 months old. He is is a big, bouncy, playful pup who still has some learning to do. Montreal loves to get out and about, he needs a lot of exercise and stimulation and therefore needs an active home as he can be a little […]


Little San Miguel ❤️ This is our tiny, adult chihuahua boy has come a long way from his rescue day when he was sitting shaking with fear, so obviously traumatised fending for himself on the back streets of Ballinasloe. They say animals know when they are in a safe environment and caring hands and that […]


At the end of April we were called about a terrified Saluki girl, emaciated, mangy and running in absolute fear around the roads of Ballinasloe. 5 months later, Kumani stands tall and proud. This stunningly beautiful girl has come a long way from the defeated, abandoned stray we first met. She is very sweet natured […]


Let’s not forget the most senior man at Heathlawn…as if he would let us. A favourite amongst the volunteers, Redmond is approx 10/11 years old and is the funniest character. He likes to be the boss and doesn’t take kindly to being told what to do or where to go, but his charm and quirky […]
