St. Patrick’s Day 2015

Well a great day was had by all at the Parade. We had lots of dogs that had been rehomed in our gang. Some of the people travelled from a good distance away to take part.

She is unharmed, quite excited to be playing at the shelter with her friends and looking forward to getting a forever home! We really need to thank everyone for all their efforts (over 34,000 people on Facebook alone!) and a big thank you to Pet Detective Robert Kenny who advised us on how to go about it all.

Now, let’s get Rosie homed, she has had enough adventures to do a lifetime and needs somewhere to settle down. Can you give her a forever home? If so, fill in the below application form.

Rosie The Lurcher Stolen

Last night a person or person(s) broke into our kennel facility in Walterstown and stole Rosie The Lurcher. We request that everybody keep a look out for this dog and let us know immediately if you spot her. She has very defined black markings on her white coat and should be easy to spot.

1925317_1009231305772823_6428137559342771698_nYou can contact us in full confidentiality by phoning 042 9335045 or emailing info@louthspca.ie. PLEASE HELP.

Rosie is microchipped and currently registered to  Louth SPCA.

The thieves also stole a bunch of metal feeding bowls, so they are likely stealing other dogs in the area, or planning to do so. The sooner they are apprehended the better.

We are using the hashtag #findrosiethelurcher for this important campaign.

Rosie still needs a home!

Rosie is the Lurcher has been with us some time now, girl. She is now 9 months old and has had all her vaccinations and is neutered. She is not good with cats and needs some training, but loves going for walks and loves people. She has a very gentle nature. Can anyone out there give this beautiful, friendly dog a forever home?

Stop Animal Ark collecting in every town and city in Ireland

Sign the petition to stop Animal Ark collecting in every town and city in Ireland on the pretence of supporting animal rescues!

Here’s the link.

When Animal Ark collects money on the street from the public they:

  • have no permit for doing so (they are only permitted to sell scratch cards)
  • do not contribute to the local animal charity in the area for whom they claim to be doing so
  • are taking away donations from very reputable Animal Rescues who struggle on a daily basis to keep open and take, treat and home abused, abandoned and neglected animals

Santa Paws Photos

Here’s some photos of this year’s Santa Paws event at the Longwalk Shopping Centre. Great fun was had by all, and the little dogs were all delighted to see Santa.

Thanks to all involved, and we hope to see you all again next year.  The main photo above is Alice and Karen with Santa  and of course Roxy, who was there for the three days as our mascot dog, meeting and greeting everyone. Special thanks to them.

Happy Christmas from the Louth SPCA!

New Website!

After a good run of 5 years, the old website has now been replaced, just in time for Christmas!

new-website

Many new features have been added to help with homing animals and making it easier to report cases of animal cruelty. Also, if you are on a tablet or phone, you will notice the site looks SO much better now on smaller screens 🙂

Many thanks to Paul Scollon at altFIRE Technologies for building and hosting the site (old and) new site, which he does completely for free. He even renews our domain name annually and manages all our updates and backups!

Here Comes Santa Paws!

Santa Paws is in town once again this year, on the 15th, 16th and 17th in the Longwalk Shopping Centre, from 11am to 5pm each day. Santa will be waiting for all the little dogs to come to see him and get their picture taken!
