RE: Horses at 2071 Cockshutt Road, Waterford, Ontario, Canada.
Thank you to all the people that have contacted us over the past weekend and still continue to message us using various messaging platforms regarding the horse issue at 2071 Cockshutt Road, Waterford, Ontario, Canada.
We are well aware of what is going on at this premises due to the large number of messages sent to us from not only Canada but also London, however we are a rescue based in Waterford, Ireland. We are unable to act on a case that happens in another country.
While this does seem to be a horrific case of animal abuse and we have seen the pictures and video to prove it, we understand how this must be distressing to anyone that had to see what was going on at the site while local law enforcement seemed to be powerless to act.
We found a few emails and messages on our answering machine regarding this issue this morning and all the people that rang our office had to look up our address to find out the international dialing code to reach us as our international number is not printed on our website or Facebook page, how did you not realize we are not in Canada?
A lot of people used our newly launched web form to make a report about the horses. FUN FACT!!! It seems that our web form has now been used to report almost as much cruelty in Canada as in our local area in Ireland so c’mon Irish people get reporting, we are hearing almost as much from the far side of the pond as from here and you are our eyes and ears, we also take reports from outside our area and will pass them to the local authorities, the link to our web form to report any cruelty is in the menu bar at the top of the page.
Welcome to the website of the Waterford Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals also known as Waterford SPCA. We are a registered charity (Charity No. 743) and a non-profit organisation dedicated to preventing cruelty, abuse and neglect of animals. We deal with horses, dogs, cats, birds, wild animals, marine animals and exotic pets.
We run education and information programmes that promote and advocate good animal welfare and responsible pet ownership. We have a fully licensed welfare inspector who responds to calls from the public regarding the welfare of animals large and small, domestic and wild.
Our kennels look after dogs who have been abandoned and abused. Our kennels rehabilitate these animals and prepare them for their forever homes. All dogs are chipped, vaccinated and neutered before being rehomed. A home check is done to ensure that the new homes are safe and suitable for our beloved rescue animals.
We run a very successful feral cat neutering scheme and through it have reduced tens of thousands of unwanted cat pregnancies and untold amounts of suffering.
We are affiliated to ISPCA. A team of volunteers are actively involved in fundraising for the society all year round.
If you are concerned that an animal in your neighbourhood is being neglected or abused, please call our office at 051-841432 or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org. Please be assured that your call will be treated in the strictest confidence.
Remember!! One call can save an animal’s life!!!!
