Abandoned pony in the care of the ISPCA


A 15 year old skewbald miniature Shetland pony is in the care of the ISPCA after being found abandoned in Letterkenny, Co. Donegal. The little gelding, named Thor by care staff, was reportedly straying in the vicinity for approximately 10 days before his removal.

Inspector Kevin McGinley who coordinated Thor’s rescue commented “I am glad to have removed this pony from that situation and any potential harm. It is not the responsibility of the ISPCA to impound healthy stray animals but thankfully, in this case, we were able to come to Thor’s aid”.

Thor was taken to the National Animal Centre in Keenagh, Co. Longford where he is doing well. Nobody has come forward to claim him so he will be made available for rehoming.

Thor will require an experienced home where he can be a companion to another pony.
