Jack’s run


I'm raising money for Wicklow SPCA, Sharpeshill. Any contribution will make an impact, whether you donate a little or a lot. Anything helps! Wicklow SPCA, Sharpeshill is responsible for caring for animals that are in need of rehoming or who suffered from cruelty and abuse. This cause is close to my heart four of my own dogs have come from the SPCA and two from Sharpeshill specifically. To help raise much needed funds, I’m going to attempt to run from Galway City to Greystones in Wicklow on the 19th of July. The run will cover 232 kilometers and will be spread [...]

Older and forgotten


  Wicklow SPCA assisted officers from the ISPCA following a report of neglect to a number of dogs in Co. Wicklow. 4 dogs were removed from a property . The Husky is 10 years plus and was in very poor condition. All the dogs were under nourished with matted coats and overgrown nails. Following veterinary assessment and treatment, the dogs are now in our care. We will update you shortly with some photos of Decco with his new hair style shortly. All donations are very much appreciated.

A little understanding


Wicklow spca are asking for some understanding from the public on the rehoming  of the recently rescued dogs from a puppy farm. We are inundated with requests and offers of homes, foster care etc. These dogs are completely unsocialised and require a lot of time and patience from our team. When the time is right we will take into consideration what type of  home is best for each dogs. There are 9 dogs in total and this may be 9 home or less from the hundreds of offers. As mentioned before all donations to help with their care is much appreciated. [...]
