Thank goodness for our supporters. It meant we were able to get Misty, a heavily pregnant Springer Spaniel, to safety just in time.
Misty was clearly exhausted and struggling to move or eat and we were so worried that her unborn puppies wouldn’t make it.

Misty received 24-hour expert care at our isolation unit in Longford where she safely delivered 14 beautiful puppies. Because of the help of our generous supporters, this beautiful puppy is here today.
Weighing in - our generous supporters helped tip the scales for this adorable Pup!
Clover, was just a tiny 8 week old kitten when she cast aside and left to die in a field along the Wild Atlantic Way last October. A kind passer-by who stumbled upon her brought her to us. She was very thin, cold, weak and malnourished and almost didn’t make it. Clover needed lots of care, cuddles, vaccinations, health checks, food and medical treatment to undo the damage.

It’s time to give Ireland’s abused puppies and kittens the care they deserve.
ISPCA Head of Fundraising, Lylah O'Beirne said: "After the very worst start in life, we believe that the animals we rescue deserve loving homes with kind owners who will fill their lives with affection and joy. When an animal has suffered so much neglect or abuse, it takes a lot of care, attention and treatment to help them recover. 54 days with us is the average recovery time needed. Of course, looking after an animal for this long costs a lot of money but thanks to the generosity of kind-hearted and caring people who funded the cost of Misty and Clover's recovery, we were able to help them in time".
Sadly, these stories aren’t one-offs. We’re continuously receiving calls about neglected dogs and cats and now that kitten season has arrived, the situation will only get worse.
If you can, please help us rescue Ireland's unloved and unwanted animals and find them loving homes today. Every donation helps us get to them in time with life-saving treatment and care.
