Can you spare 2 hours, twice a week (minimum)?

We are looking for a driver who can do pick ups in the Centre van between 1pm – 3pm on a Tuesday and Wednesday.

Experience of Transit Van driving would be helpful as it’s a big old beast!!!!


Please call Elaine on 0533 863 1950 if you can help!!

Aubergine and onion au gratin

4 medium aubergines

Salt and pepper

2-3 tbsp oil

8 oz onions

8 oz cheese grated

Chopped parsley to garnish


Slice the aubergines and layer in a colander, sprinkle each layer with salt and set aside for 1 hour. Pat the aubergines dry.

Heat the oil in a frying pan and fry the aubergine slices for 2-3 minutes each side. Drain on kitchen paper. Fry the onions in the same pan until soft.

Arrange the aubergine and onion slices in a greased ovenproof dish, seasoning each layer. Sprinkle with the cheese.

Do you remember Pasha?

Back in April we were asking if anyone recognised her – She understood commands in English and was very well behaved so we were fairly sure that she had come from an English home. Well no one came forward to claim her.

Then we featured her asking for a new “Furever” home…..Pretty Pasha caught the eye of Denise but she was worried as she had her own handsome hunk at home, her beloved Rocky (the rotti). After many talks and thoughts it was decided that Denise should foster Pasha to see how she got on with Rocky and how she was at home. It was agreed that if it didn’t work out, or if Pasha and Rocky didn’t hit it off, that she would go back to the Centre immediately. After 2 weeks it was clear that Pasha and Rocky were besties … it was also clear that Denise was also smitten with Pasha and vice versa … Pasha is now Lily and she has been “at home” for several weeks now and is well and truly part of the family.

Happy Days Lily.

Whenever a cat or dog is homed from our KAR Rescue Centre it is always made clear that IF there are any problems the owner should come back to us to discuss the problem and we WILL help as much as we can. The same is true for our foster carers – we WILL help as much as we can and we WILL take the foster animal back if the placement is not working for either the foster carer or the cat/dog.

Please if you can offer a foster placement (or a furever home) for one of our cats or dogs contact us or visit the Rescue Centre to have a chat.

We have so many who need you.

Message from Louise Holly Flynn

Thank you so much Kyrenia Animal Rescue (KAR) for letting us walk your beautiful doggos, absolutely loved fussing them and taking them out in the mountains, we will definitely be back!

Anyone that can help in any way, it’s so appreciated!  All these doggos need forever homes but even just taking them for walks/donating food, any help you can give is huge! 

There’s around 300 beautiful dogs here that have all been rescued by KAR and the work they do is amazing! If you get the chance to visit here then definitely do so. X


We love that you want to walk the dogs at the Centre, but with it being so hot, we can only allow them to be walked for short periods or at 9am.


We don’t wish you to be disappointed, but walking after 10am is extremely dangerous for them and YOU!!

Elaine and the staff at the Centre

Would like to thank all the visitors who have brought donations to the centre, including and not totally inclusive..beach umbrellas, dog biscuits, cat food, collars, leads. 

Please keep your donations coming, it is so generous of you all!!

Today marked the end of an era at the centre.

Elaine has asked that we pay tribute to Dave who leaves for pastures new with Rae his wife and family.

Dave’s medical knowledge has made a huge difference to the lives of the dogs and cats at the centre, his concreting and welding skills are perfection.

Elaine, the centre staff and all at KAR wish you the best and happiness with your move, you will be missed. Are you sure you don’t want to change your mind?
