Anyone missing a golden Labrador Male not neutered brought into Fairview Veterinary hospital [Fairview, Dublin] on Saturday… No microchip /collar but has what looks like a clip mark growing back on his right shoulder. He’s about 4-6yrs and is being looked after by Fairview Veterinary Hospital at the moment…
Urgent Urgent! We really need to get this chap out on foster care TODAY! He needs 3 weeks TLC because of cat flu and he had to be shaved because he was very badly matted when he came in. If you can help please, please contact Barbara on 01 4994503 or firstname.lastname@example.org ASAP, Thank you
The DSPCA are delighted with the court results from today of an owner of a cat (above) who died due to severe neglect and starvation. Swords District Court found Rudolf Ciskos guilty of mistreating his cat and fined him €200 and court costs of €500 all payable to the DSPCA.
He was also banned from the ownership of any animal for a period of 2 years.
This is a great step forward in court proceedings in a case relating to a cat. The DSPCA is rarely successful in prosecutions around cases dealing with cats as proof of ownership is difficult to prove.
Unfortunately in this case the cat had to be euthanasied by a DSPCA Vet on humane grounds due to the severity of neglect.
Shane a baby duckling was collected yesterday in the city centre. Shane’s mom was an unusual black and white mallard duck as opposed to the regular brown kind. The mother duck did a silly thing and nested in an enclosed yard where she could not walk her young back to the park. We presume the other ducklings did not make it as she was only left with one.
Our ambulance driver Gillian Duffy attended the call yesterday but despite all efforts she could not catch the mother duck as she flew off and that left Shane alone.
Shane is now in good company as we have many ducklings in the shelter. When they are big enough we will release them back to the wild. Good luck little man
Ruby Johnston with Linus the Irish Wolfhound this morning helping to launch the DSPCA Great Irish Dog Walk this September which will see the LARGEST number of dogs ever gathered together in one location in Ireland.
Organisers hope up to 5,000 dogs will attend the 3km stroll in the Phoenix Park, Dublin, on September 28.
We’d take Chompsky, but he hates crowds, other dogs, the Phoenix Park and walking.
I arrived to the Dublin SPCA with an injured back leg. It was very bad so the only thing to do was to turn me into a 3 legged kitty!! As you can see from my photo I’be been upgraded from a cone of shame and I’m wearing a very fetching inflatable collar but it’s only while my injuries heal. I will be able to live a happy & full life even though I only have 3 legs and I can’t wait to find a home where I can rule the roost!
Meet Digby, he is the 83rd horse our inspectors were called out to last week alone. Digby was found wandering on the main road beside Citywest on Friday. He is not microchipped so yet again we have no way of tracing his owners. Our vets are currently looking into the the reasons for his skin condition and we will let you know as soon as we have an update.
We need your support to help horses like Digby, simply share his story to raise awareness of the importance of traceability or you can donate online to help with his care.
