        Its big and red but not Santa .....we are overwhelmed with the kindness and generosity from the Kavanagh family, owners of James Street Steel for their sponsorship and supply of steel for our new kennels. The Kavanagh family adopted a dog from the shelter a few years ago and we look forward to having them as our guests at our official opening of the new dog kennels in the Spring. Many thanks James Street Steel from all at Wicklow SPCA.
