Socialisation of dogs


Staff members Linda and TJ completed some kennel management training with ACDH in London at the start of the year and returned with some great plans. We aim to visit different environments and introduce our dogs to different sounds, textures and people. The photos are taken from our visits to Avondale house, Glendalough, Deputy's Pass, and Roundwood

A keen eye


Brendan is a long term volunteer with Wicklow spca and is also involved with the Golden Eagle trust in Co. Wicklow. These are just two of his many photographs of Red Kites and Buzzards which he spotted near the sanctuary. A wildlife meadow and bird hide is something that is part of our future plans at Wicklow spca
