Stop The Suffering, End The Demand, Be Part Of The Solution

The ISPCA have saved hundreds of puppies and dogs over the last 12 months from deplorable conditions from rogue puppy breeders. Mothers and puppies arrive at our Centres terrified, often huddled together silently. On many occasions, the ISPCA has found that mom has no access to day light, has inappropriate bedding and is cooped up in a small kennel or breeding cage. In the worst cases there is limited food or access to clean drinking water with minimal human interaction or veterinary care. After extensive treatment and rehabilitation, the ISPCA find loving homes for these puppies where they will receive the love and kindness they deserve.

The ISPCA is asking you to Be Part of the Solution by helping us to break ground in 2017 on a purpose-built Mother and Puppy Unit at the ISPCA National Animal Centre to accommodate the dogs that come into our care heavily pregnant, or with very young puppies. You can donate to the ISPCA either securely through our website, or Text ISPCA to 50300 to donate €4. Texts cost €4. ISPCA will receive a minimum of €3.25. Service Provider: LIKE CHARITY. Helpline: 076 6805278.

With your help, the ISPCA can build a dedicated, separate quiet and sterile environment for pregnant mothers and young puppies. By donating to the ISPCA, we can accommodate and rehabilitate more mothers and puppies rescued from puppy farms.

Finally, don’t feed the demand for puppies, consider adopting a puppy instead.  By deciding to adopt a puppy you will reduce the risk of becoming the latest victim of this cruel trade. Buying a sick puppy is a heart breaking experience for any family to endure, and many puppies are bred in appalling conditions, are not vaccinated or microchipped and may be in need of veterinary care. If you are sure that you want to buy a puppy, please read our advice on buying a puppy, highlighting some of the things you need to know before you buy, and what questions to ask when you meet your puppy.
