Mayo Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals Ltd., is an entirely voluntary run Society with a 'no-kill' policy. Acting mostly on reports from the general public we rescue, rehabilitate and rehome approximately 500 animals a year, paying for all veterinary treatment and giving each and every animal a good quality of life whilst in our care. All animals over the age of 6 months are neutered/spayed/vaccinated/flea/worm treated. The total cost for this would be approximately 170 euro for a male and 180 euro for a female dog. Female cats would cost approximately 76 euro and male cats 55 euro - these costs do not include being treated for lice, mange, broken limbs etc., or feeding, cleaning materials, cat litter, heating etc. Whilst we ask for a donation of 70 euro when rehoming a dog and 30 when rehoming a cat, while this amount nowhere near covers our costs, they do go towards Mayo SPCAs vet bills, daily care, feed bills and more. Any donation small or large is most welcome and enables us to continue to rescue and care for cruelly treated innocent creatures.
ANYONE WISHING TO COME AND SEE ANY OF OUR ANIMALS CAN DO SO BY APPOINTMENT ONLY. NOT ALL OF OUR ANIMALS ARE AT OUR KENNEL/CATTERY FACILITIES, SOME ARE IN FOSTER CARE.
26 NOVEMBER 2014
We named this dog Tori after he was rescued from the School at Toreen, where he had been hanging around since Wednesday 26th November. He is the most beautiful looking dog in excellent condition and believed to be a rough collie or cross bred. He's rather nervous right now but that is understandable. If an owner doesn't come forward then we need to find him a new home as soon as possible. Please call us if you can help.
PETWORLD in Castlebar has kindly put out a special bin for donations of food, kitty litter, and other needed items for the MAYO SPCA.
If you would like to help, but can't make it to Petworld in Castlebar, please contact us for alternate drop off points.
A Huge Thank you to Horkans Petworld in Turlough for their help in launching the appeal.

*********CAT OF THE WEEK**********
Bambi & Bailey, two stunning ginger cats. Bambi & Bailey are two of the loveliest natured cats, litter trained, vaccinated, and ready to move into their very own forever homes. The long coat is very unusual on a ginger, and will need regular brushing to keep it in top condition. These two truly are gorgeous in looks nd personality. If you can offer an indoor home to these lovely cats please contact us.
