Wicklow SPCA

Our website is currently being updated, please check back soon for new features and details of our animals. In the meantime, please see our Facebook page for photos, news and upcoming events.

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.


Adopt a Pet:

We are urgently seeking to re-home our dogs, cats and other animals with families that will love and cherish them.

If you are interested in taking one of our animals please make an appointment to visit us at the sanctuary and give an animal a good home for the rest of its lifetime.

However, the decision to adopt a pet should not be taken lightly, as our aim is to find long term homes for each animal. In other words our animals need to be adopted not fostered. That is not to say animals cannot be returned, however this should only be done if the owner genuinely cannot take care of the animal any longer. So, please do take time to consider if you really do have the time/resources to adopt a pet and give it the home it deserves.

Rehoming a pet from us:

We will ask you to fill out a Home Finder Form and one of our representatives will be in contact with you soon after your booking.

For dogs it is necessary to have a fully secure garden of a suitable size for the dog you wish to choose. One of our representatives will be in contact with you and will visit you for your home check.

Sometimes people, for whatever reason, cannot continue to keep their own pets. Rather than bringing them to the Sanctuary they are happy to hold onto their pets until someone will come forward to give a home to them.

There are often new pets up for adoption. Please contact us for details. You can also find details of pets for adoption in the Wicklow People newspaper most weeks.
