The ISPCA rescue three vulnerable puppies abandoned in a garden in Westmeath

4th October 2019

The ISPCA responded to a call for help recently when a kind-hearted member of the public heard little whimpers coming from their garden just outside the village of Ballymore, Co. Westmeath. 

ISPCA Inspector Elaine Reynolds discovered three collie/terrier type puppies no more than ten weeks old.  The puppies, later called Liam, Fifi and Tomas were transported to the ISPCA National Animal Centre where they received veterinary assessment.

ISPCA Inspector Reynolds said:  “Apart from being cold and hungry, the puppies did not appear to have health issues. It was unclear how long they had been there and as soon as they arrived at the Centre, they were placed under a heat lamp and were monitored closely.  They are continuing to thrive and will be looking for new, loving homes for them soon”.

Elaine added:  “I just don’t understand how anyone could just abandon three defenceless little puppies and I am so glad we are able to give them the life they deserve, in kind loving new homes.  Of course this all could have been avoided if the puppies’ mother had been neutered.  Neutering is absolutely key to reducing the numbers of unwanted animals in Ireland”.

Anybody with any information is asked to contact the ISPCA National Animal Cruelty Helpline on 1890 515 515 or report online here 

The ISPCA is encouraging prospective pet owners to always consider adopting a pet from a reputable rescue organisation instead of going online. Anyone looking to get a new pet, particularly a puppy, should visit to download the Puppy Checklist to avoid falling victim to unscrupulous breeders.
