What Wicklow SPCA does:

For one hundred years the Wicklow Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Wicklow SPCA) has worked tirelessly to rehabilitate and rehome animals. We provide love, care and much needed attention to hundreds of animals that are abused, mistreated and hurt throughout the year. This is why it's crucial that we ask for your support.

We believe that in order to try and prevent animal cruelty, education is key. In the navigation above, we provide you with some handy training tips, veterinarian tips and more so why not take a look and we are sure you'll find something helpful!

We would not be able to do our jobs without the help from the general public. Without your support and generous donations we would be unable to provide care for any of the animals. We have recently set up an online donations page and we ask for your continuous support. All proceeds go directly to helping the animals and we appreciate all donations. Click here to visit our donations page. Donations can be made anonymously if you wish.

Our Isolation Unit is now up and running thanks to a huge effort from all our staff, volunteers and supporters.

The new unit already has made a huge difference to the care of the dogs at the Sanctuary.


We would like to give our thanks to Pedigree for their donation of 10,000eur, to Irish Civil Service Charity fund who sponsored our dog beds and also to BSkyB for their generous donation.


We've made huge strides to completing the Isolation Unit. Thanks to everybody who has helped us throughout the year.
