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 this amount nowhere near covers our costs. 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.

Last night we were called to a horse in a field that was in need of help. On arrival we found two horses one of which had a serious injury and knee deep in mud. The vet was called and the horse is now receiving the much needed help. If anyone can spare some bedding, feed or hay it would be much appreciated by both horses.
We also need vet bandages and manuka honey for the wound. If people can donate these then it will help keep the vet bill down. Since we rescued the horse the vet has come in everyday to redress the wound so the costs are going up so any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you.
This is what was wrapped around the poor horse's leg.
After the wire was removed and before the wound was cleaned.
After the wound was washed and cleaned, this is what we saw. The bone can clearly be seen here.

COOKIE AND HER PUPPIES
Cookie was handed in to us as a stray on 24 February. We could see that she was heavily pregnant and that night gave birth to 4 beautiful healthy puppies.
PARVO OUTBREAK : THERE IS A PARVO OUTBREAK IN BALLINA - so far the majority of cases are in the St Patricks Estate and its surrounding areas. Please share this post, the only way a dog can be protected is if it has had its full vaccination course -this means it should have had 2 vaccinations in total within 4 weeks of each other. Pups are extremely vulnerable. IF YOU LIVE NEAR this area, please do not let your dog wander - especially if the dog has not been vaccinated - it is literally a death sentence. Parvo is airborne - which means it could spread anywhere, a dog walking around can pick it up on his paws, so please please get your dog or pup vaccinated now, it is a terrible disease and can cause immense suffering to a dog/ pup --- AND IS SO EASILY PREVENTED
On Monday 13th January our volunteers were out walking dogs and came across this terrible sight in a ditch at Holywell Upper & Lower, Ballyhaunis. A young pony, who was in poor body condition, had obviously died and been heartlessly dumped into a drain. We know it didn't die in the drain as there were no signs of a struggle. Such a sad thing to see when out walking dogs and nobody could help but wonder why did this little pony die and where. If you recognise it then please contact us.
