Welcome to Pause 4 Paws!

Situated in the heart of rural Wexford, yet only 3 miles(4.8km) from the N30, Pause4Paws has been purpose built to provide a comfortable and secure “stay away from home” for your dog or cat. Because of my affection and respect for animals, it is my intention to cater for your pets comforts, and offer you the security of peace of mind.

Let me introduce myself. My name is Karol Cullen. I bought this property in Co. Wexford for the purpose of building the kennels. I have always loved animals (there were always animals in our house). I currently have 2 dogs of my own, (both are rescues).

At Pause4Paws each animal has its own roomy accommodation, and out door exercise area. They get several visits a day, be it for feeding, walking or just a chat and a pat.

In the unforeseeable event that a vet is required, there is 24 hour cover.

As well as dogs and cats I can also provide a caring enviroment for other pets, such as Pip and Squeak, a rabbit and a guinea pig who have been recent boarders. And another rabbit called Bunny. (See his pic!)

Whatever your reason for needing to board your pet, be it going on holiday; an illness or moving house , you have one less thing to worry about when you let us look after your pet.

Please spend time to view this web site and find out more about Pause4Paws and the services provided.  Many pictures are shown on this web site of pets that have boarded here. Just click on a pic to find out more about that pet, then click to exit.

Visits are welcomed.

Being purpose built, the cattery can give your puss a happy, comfortable and pleasurable stay, with all their needs catered for.

The cattery is built with timber throughout, to provide a natural environment, and each individual pen is insulated.

Each pen has an exercise area, with toys to stimulate and occupy your cat; and being south facing, there are places to bask in the sunshine ( weather depending ! ); and a cosy corner to snuggle into.

Access to an outer area, for further exploration, extra stimulation and more sun bathing, can also be provided, depending on number of cats boarding.

I do not allow cats to socialise, so they have their own space.

Two meals a day are provided and special dietary requirements can be catered for, where possible.

As there is limited space and demand is great, if you want to place your cat here, you need to book early.

I do a lot of  fostering of stray cats for the New Ross SPCA., prior to re-homing. Pics of some can be viewed on this page.

If you are interested in giving a home to a needy puss, please phone Ann Roche on: 089 4161367.
