With the ever increasing volume of messages and calls coming in from all across Northern Ireland regarding lost and found pets. We are ran by a small team of volunteers so we are desperately in need of some people to join the Lost Paws NI squad!

We cover the whole of Northern Ireland and we are striving to have a team full of volunteers that cover every part of the country. We are a very passionate and friendly team so the benefits of volunteering for us would be you would have the opportunity to meet new people and develop new skills. All necessary training will be provided by ourselves.

Itโ€™s our mission to get every lost and found pet back home to their family and we need your help to continue doing that.

Please PM us if you could help in any capacity.

If you are not in the position to volunteer for us we would massively appreciate it if you could share this appeal.

Thank you โค๏ธโค๏ธ

Three of our dogs are currently in the vets receiving emergency care after eating items left out in Hillsborough Forest Park.

Search Dog Betsy along with Trainee Search Dogs Koda and Rocko are receiving the very best of care and their handlers are with them. Three family pets are also affected.

It may be an idea to avoid the park for now, or keep your dogs on a lead.


๐Ÿ’”3 Rehoming Appeals And Not A Single Home Offer- Foster Home Now Required๐Ÿ’”

Diesel has been in emergency foster with our good friends at Oldwood Boarding Kennels for over 2 months now in one of their kennels. But he really needs a sofa to rest his paws. We just donโ€™t get it heโ€™s had 3 rehoming appeals and not a single enquiry to offer him a home.

Diesel is slightly older at 7-8 years old but that doesnโ€™t stop him. Heโ€™s still game for an adventure and a huge character. If you feel you can offer him a forever home or a foster home please fill out the app below or PM us.

Senior cat- we are unsure of an exact age

Mufasa arrived to Firmount vets earlier this year, sadly this big man had a tough time of it and was quickly diagnosed with both Feline Leukemia (FELV) and diabetes.

Unfortunately we don't expect this beautiful, friendly gentleman will have long a life ahead of him, but this doesn't mean he shouldn't have the opportunity to live out the rest of his days in a loving comfortable home.

Any adopter will need to be comfortable with giving injections and following specific instructions ref diet.
Mufasa will have to be indoors only and we believe being the only cat in the home will be most suitable.
Mufasa could live with children who have a sensible approach to cats.

The sanctuary will cover the cost of Mufasa's vet bills under our foster scheme.

If you are interested in offering this cat a home and you meet the criteria listed, then please click on the following link to complete an online application.
If you are being considered we will be in touch to arrange an appointment for you to meet the cat and start the rehoming process.
All parts of the form must be completed to ensure your application can be processed
If you are being considered to commence the adoption process you will receive a call from a mobile number ending in 081; due to time constraints there will be a limited timescale to answer or respond to our message.



*Update we have sourced another mare for the foal due to arrive this evening*
Thanks again for the shares and cares, keep everything crossed ๐Ÿคž.

Sadly our little foal is coming home today. The poor foster mare has got Ill and needs to recover without our foal to look after as well. So we may be at hand rearing stage and in the absence of a surrogate mother we are on the lookout this time for a nanny goat. Facebook please do you bit again and share ๐Ÿ™


It's hard to believe but there is still no interest in pretty little Rosie yet. ๐Ÿ˜ข.

We would like to alert all dog owners to the fact that it is now LAMBING SEASON.

Owning a dog comes with certain obligations. You must ensure that your dog is secured, and kept under effectual control.

Do not allow your dog to wander.

If you are walking in the country, or close to sheep, keep your dog on a leash to prevent any unnecessary worrying of sheep.

Ensure that your dog is microchipped and correctly registered, and is wearing a collar and ID tag.

Please keep your dog(s) safe and secured. It is your responsibility.

Iโ€™ve been asked to help with the remaining hens from a commercial farm. They are 72 week old white leghorn hens which will go to slaughter if homes are not found. Aiming for 18th February farm clearance

We will never save them all but we will save the lives of as many as possible. They have been in quarantine for 60 days so are ready for their new homes immediately. If you can help please get in touch as their little lives literally depend on it.

How has this absolute angel not found her furever home. ๐Ÿ’”

Fern has been in rescue now 7 months. And really deserves to find a sofa to call her own. She has no health or behaviour issues. Other than typical of her breed will chase small animals and would be best suited to an active family.

๐Ÿ’•Sex Female
๐Ÿ’•Breed Collie
๐Ÿ’•Local NI Surrender

She is house trained and has some basic training but needs lead work. She can be very boisterous with other dogs so a home where she will have all the attention would be best suited. And a home without very big dogs.
๐Ÿ’•Children due to her livelinesses 16 years +
๐Ÿ’•Small Animals and cats no.
๐Ÿ’•Not spayed yet and any potential adopter will be on our extended home trail contract and under the wing of the charity until this is completed
๐Ÿ’•Vaccines up to date.
๐Ÿ’•A few words from his foster mum: She loves to play ball and will fetch for you too and when it's time for the sofa ....she gives the best cuddles.

Is interested in giving her final and permanent loving home please PM the page to find out more. Please note we will not consider applications from homes with un neutered dogs.
