Our plan with Cian’s Kennels is to “bring pets closer to sick children and their families” providing this service in a structured, safe, practical way, free of charge to all qualifying families.

The services we aim to provide include:

· Full veterinary checks including vaccinations

· Transport from home to and from the kennels

· Transport for pets to and from the hospital (as needed in Phase 1 below)

· Fully resourced holding/boarding kennels


During Phase 1 we are piloting the project, offering the service initially to families in St John’s Ward in Children’s Health Ireland at Crumlin, the oncology ward where Cian’s spent a lot of time during his illness. On 20th May 2022 we officially opened our pet visiting facility at the back of St John’s Ward, close to the entrance of Ronald Mc Donald House.


During Phase 2 we hope to expand the service to other centres and fulfil the “dream” of creating a legacy for Cian that will be live on into the future.


Our plans our continually evolving but we will keep everyone up to date on progress as the plans moved forward over the next couple of months. Our social media pages, Facebook and Instagram are updated regularly and we will be keeping our Latest News section up to date too!
