FAWN – Cruelty

In January 2016 Fawn was found by a member of the public in a dreadful emaciated state. She was very distressed and very sick. On further investigation, it was discovered that Fawn had been shot in the face and eyes, resulting in her losing her eyesight.
Fawn was a broken soul who was absolutely terrified of everything. Here was a once healthy young dog, now reduced to a shivering, shaking wreck.
After months of veterinary care, lots of loving care by Marian and the volunteers at the kennels, she began to grown stronger and became happy and playful. Over the months she grew stronger in herself, she loves human company, even though it was a so called human that caused her so much suffering. She is very forgiving. Fawn walks well on a lead, even though she is blind, all her other senses are finally tuned and she can get about ok.


This little lady was picked up in Claremorris on the 9th September 2016 by two wonderful lads who realised she was in bother. We would like to thank these gentlemen because who knows how this could have ended. This poor girl is very weak, hungry and scared. Her neck is raw from a rope we think and she will need a lot of TLC. Cara had a long journey ahead of her; she was too weak to stand up and had fluid on her lungs. She was under veterinary care for weeks after her arrival at the kennels.

Little Lily


This is Lily, a female Yorkshire X terrier, around 5 years old, was handed into the care of The Mayo SPCA on the 25th February 2017.



This lovely little boy had been straying in Claremorris; he was living in some undergrowth on waste grounds, cold wet and very hungry. He was petrified and scared out of his mind. He was rescued by Tracey Cullinane & Pat Egerton and taken into the care of Mayo SPCA.

Today he was taken to the Small Animal Practice in Claremorris where Katie McGrath kindly groomed and washed him. She has helped us with so many rescued dogs and it is greatly appreciated. Benjy is a much happier dog tonight. He will be up for adoption soon.

It is a very busy time for Mayo SPCA and we are appealing for donations to help in the care of the unwanted, abandoned and injured cats & dogs in our care. Over the past twelve months we have had in our care many dogs and cats with severe and horrific injures due to neglect. Ever donation we receive goes directly to the care of our animals.

Helpless & Unwanted

Friday 10th February 2017

Meet Chas & Dave, two helpless collie pups, not even two weeks old, no eyes open and completely helpless, dumped by side of the road in a cardboard box, they were left there in the freezing cold. It is not known how long they have been there.

It is a miracle with the weather so cold they have survived so far. Safe now in the care of Mayo SPCA, they are currently in foster care being hand reared.
