The #ISPCA is appealing for loving homes for a large number of Jack Russell Terrier #dogs and #puppies recently surrendered to the #charity and currently being cared for @ispca_official National Animal Centre in #Longford .
The majority of the dogs were only eighteen months old or less and included seventeen gorgeous little puppies.
While the #ISPCA were pleased to have been able to intervene before any major issues arose, #Spaying or #Neutering would have prevented these unwanted litters of puppies being born in the first place. The rescue and rehabilitation of such a large number of dogs and puppies places a significant amount of pressure on the ISPCA, both financially and also in terms of accommodating such an influx of animals. #Ireland already has a serious problem with stray and unwanted dogs. Owners need to take action to have their pets #Neutered or #Spayed now to end this cycle of pet overpopulation.
For more information about rehoming these adorable dogs and puppies, please plan a visit to our National Animal Centre in Longford or visit our website for more information.
You can read about the positive benefits of spaying/neutering your pets which helps reduce the risk of certain cancers, curbing unwanted sexual behaviour, marking and also includes having a positive benefit for their health and lifespan.

The Evening Echo Mini Marathon deadline for registration is fast approaching so if you are up to the challenge and would like to support the ISPCA, please sign up today. The event is taking place on Sunday 24th September 2017 in Cork and we are looking for 25 animal lovers to take part to support our Equine Rescue Centre in Mallow.
We are hoping to raise €5,000 to develop our equine isolation unit caring for cruelly treated, neglected and abused animals. The isolation unit, which is separate from our main stables is a holding area for newly rescued equines. We desperately need to expand our facilities to enable us to help even more horses, ponies and donkeys rescued by ISPCA Inspectors.
Check out the ISPCA website for your marathon pack at https://goo.gl/cZhqXQ or to officially register to take part please visit http://minimarathon.eveningecho.ie/
If you have any questions, please contact our fundraising team on 043 33 25035 (3) or email firstname.lastname@example.org. #ispca#marathon#minimarathon#fitness#feelgood

We were delighted that three of our ISPCA rescued horses took part at an equestrian event at the Ballygarvan Show in Cork recently. The event was a great success and everyone had such a fantastic day. Huge congratulations to everyone who competed on the day.
It’s heart-warming to see equines that were once rescued by the ISPCA go on to reach their full potential where they are so well loved and cared for, for the rest of their lives. To see more great images from the day please visit our website here http://www.ispca.ie/events/detail/ballygarven_event_was_a_great_success

A whopping €426 was raised, also including the recent ‘pay as you feel’ event and the funds raised will help so many animals in our care.
Thank you so much to everyone who kindly donated and also to the sponsors who supported Holly @welleco @linwoodshealthfoods and @yonka_ireland @allroundgreatguy @nutmost @SovaVeganButcher and to the lovely Grace @skinfullaffairs for coordinating everything.

Star is settling in her new home so well and we were thrilled to receive an update from her new owner Patsy: “I rescued Star after she had her back leg amputated. I fell in love with her from the moment I saw her. There was a connection between the two of us and she gives our home so much love and happiness. I could not begin to describe how much joy Star has brought to our lives. I highly recommend adopting a pet from the ISPCA and giving one a second chance of a happy home”. The ISPCA has lots of pets patiently waiting for a new home, check out the website here to find your new best friend. http://www.ispca.ie/rehoming/dogs_rehoming/ #adoptdontshop#adoptadog#pets#bestfriend#ispca
Here is a great update about Abú, Duke and Gibson who are very happy in their new homes. Miriam said: “Duke is so attached to Abú and they are often seen grooming each other. He is the mischievous and inquisitive one who wants to chew and kick anything unusual that he can find in the field.
He is such a funny little character. We put two of last year’s miniature donkey foals in this part of the field with the three ISPCA rescued guys and they are all getting along great. Gibson was a little shy initially but has become so friendly and always seems pleased to see us coming across the field and Abú remains as placid as ever. The two young ones tend to keep to themselves and they all get along great together. We are delighted to have them here with us and really have become great members of our family.

Melisandre is a gorgeous little kitten looking for a new home. She has spent some time in a foster home and settled in very well. She was rescued wandering around a housing estate suffering from cat flu. She has since made a wonderful recovery and now has a clean bill of health. She is litter trained, treated for parasites, vaccinated and will be neutered when she is old enough.
If Melisandre could be the one for you, please check out our website here http://www.ispca.ie/rehoming/cats_rehoming/

We are so delighted to see Simpson settle in so well in his new home. Catherine who is Simpsons new owner is thrilled with him and here is what she had to say: “Simpson loves playing with other dogs, and he is absolutely great with kids. He is so affectionate; all he wants to do is cuddle up on the couch with me. He is always so happy when anyone walks through the door and is an absolute joy! If I was to ever get another dog it would definitely be another Lurcher”. Thanks Catherine for the lovely photos and update! Lurcher breeds make wonderful family pets. They love a quick sprint around the garden followed by a nap on a the couch or their cosy bed. They enjoy daily walks and love nothing more than chilling out in good company. They are extremely affectionate, gentle and love playing with toys and they will love being your best friend.

The ISPCA is appealing for information after a malnourished horse was seized from waste ground off Killarney Road in Bray recently.
ISPCA enquiries established that the animal, a roan cob gelding, was tethered in the same spot for a number of days and it had become entangled in the rope with which it was tied.
The horse was not microchipped and an owner has not yet been identified. Anybody with any information as to its ownership is asked to contact the ISPCA National Animal Cruelty Helpline in confidence on 1890 515 515 or report online on www.ispca.ie
ISPCA Chief Inspector Dowling added “I would like to thank the Irish Horse Welfare Trust for their assistance in transporting and accommodating the horse, and an Garda Siochana for their help during the seizure”.
