About Us

We are based in Aughrim, Co. Wicklow.
Rescuing and rehoming unwanted, stray and abandoned domestic cats and kittens throughout the area. All cats and kittens in their care are neutered at 5 months old, and home checks are carried out prior to adoption. They also work with feral colonies, trapping and neutering - and returning the cats if safe to do so.

In 2010 Kathy Smale & Catriona Leahy got together with a mutual concern for the serious overpopulation of feral cats in County Wicklow, & formed 'Cat Concern Wicklow' to specialize in TNR (the Trap-Neuter-Return of feral cats) which they both independently already had many years of experience in.

As there are often feral kittens too, Catriona also called her home Aughrim Cat Rescue where she fosters tames & rehomes them, as well as some other cats in nee. As Catriona is based in Aughrim she looks after the southern half of County Wicklow, & Kathy based in Greystones looks after the northern half. They neuter from around 300 to 400 cats per year between them.
