Pamela is a beautiful older cat is looking for her purrfect retirement home. Preferably a home without dogs! Pamela was in bad shape when we rescued her. She was starving and a veterinary examination revealed she had been shot at with a pellet gun. Surgery has successfully removed most of the shrapnel. With the support of wonderful veterinary care at City Vets and fantastic foster parents, Pamela has made a good recovery. In spite of all she has been through she has a very sweet nature and must have been somebody’s pet at some stage. She’s litter trained and sleeps on her foster mum’s bed! If you think you can give Pamela a home please phone Linda at the office (051-841432) for a chat. Looking forward to hearing from you.
Saoirse, a partially sighted deaf lurcher, came to us from a very poor situation. Her living conditions were inadequate and her quality of life very poor. The bad old days are over for this beautiful girl, she has found a wonderful new home and we were delighted to get an update with pictures and videos of Saoirse now known as Pickles, living it up with her new buddy, Oski. Here’s what her new Mammy had to say…”Oski absolutely adores her (Saoirse). We knew he was an extremely friendly, peace loving chap, but he made us even more proud by showing everyone he is a true gent. He shares his treats and toys with Pickles (Saoirse) and never complain, even when she pinches them from under his nose! Both fur babies are truly fond of each other and we couldn’t be happier. “……and WE couldn’t be happier either! An update like this is like a ray of hope on a dark winter’s evening. It gives us hope for the neglected, unwanted and abused animals that sadly we meet as part of our work Thank-you to Saoirse aka Pickle’s wonderful new family.PS I can’t stop smiling!!!!

This is Dara and Izzy from Dungarvan presenting Waterford SPCA with a cheque for 310 euro. With the support of Dara’s mam Ciara, Dara and his friends organised a sponsored walk for Waterford SPCA on the Greenway before Christmas. Thank-you to all our junior supporters who took part in the walk and helped raise much needed funds for the Waterford SPCA. A great start to 2020 for the animals. Thanks from all of us and “woof-woof”, “miaow” and “whinny-whinny” from all the animals.
We would like to thank Waterford Credit Union, Upper Grange for their generous donation to our work. The puppies really enjoyed their day out and as usual charmed all around them. Thank-you Waterford Credit Union, your support is greatly appreciated and will be put to good use.
Please make sure you’re pet is microchipped and that the chip is registered. We have come across some dogs lately who have strayed and have no owner ID. When this happens the dogs are brought to the pound and there is a cost attached to reclaiming them. It’s also a good idea to get your cat microchipped. A speedy reunion with owners avoids tremendous anxiety to you and your pet in the event of them going missing or wandering off.
Many many thanks to all who supported our fundraisers last week in City Centre, Tesco Ardkeen and Ardkeen Quality Food Stores. The day was a great success. We met lots of fellow animal lovers. As usual the people of Waterford gave generously and we are very grateful for the support. Thank-you to Ardkeen Quality Food Stores and Tesco Ardkeen for their support and thank-you to all our volunteer collectors. Also a big thank-you to our four legged volunteers, Paddy (pictured below) and Molly. Ar scaith a chéile a mhaireann na daoine agus na h-ainmhithe.
