Mayo Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals

 

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.

THANK YOU

CRUELTY

SEPTEMBER 2014

In one month, these 5 kittens have been saved from very callous acts of cruelty. You can read their individual stories on the Cruelty pages. ( http://www.mayospca.com/index.php/cruelty-cases )

*

Little Alli, dumped in a cardboard box, obviously injured & in pain, 6 weeks old.

*

Spitz & Brun tossed into a river to drown, 3 weeks old.

*

2 tiny beings, dumped in a bag and hung on a gate, 6 weeks old.

*

It was the kindness of members of the public, that saved the lives of these little creatures.  but it is high time such horrific acts regarding innocent animals stopped!   There is no need for unwanted litters to be born.  Please have your pets SPAYED/NEUTERED!   Discounted price vouchers are available

 *

Any individual who can treat tiny defenceless beings so horrifically, needs to be stopped. Should anyone have any information as to how the kittens ended up in the river, in the bag, or in a box please call. All information will be treated as confidential - Please call 09496 31888




ALWAYS SPAY OR NEUTER

The most important thing to know about spaying & neutering is that it saves lives. In every county, there are animals sitting in animal shelters waiting for homes, or in pounds, sadly waiting out the 5 days before they are euthanised.

Making the decision to spay or neuter your pet, means fewer animals~ just as sweet, healthy, loving and deserving of companionship as yours~ being abandoned in pounds, shelters or worse.

In case you need more information before making this important and responsible decision, here are the truths behind commonly spread myths about spaying & neutering

MYTH: My dog/cat will get fat and lazy.

FACT: The only way your dog will get fat and lazy is if you do not provide enough exercise and feed him too much.

MYTH: It’s better for my dog/cat to have one litter before I spay her.

FACT: Medical evidence has shown that a dog who is spayed before her first heat cycle is typically healthier than dogs spayed after the first heat cycle or after having a litter of puppies. You should consult your veterinarian about the appropriate time to spay or neuter your dog.

MYTH: Children should experience the miracle of birth.

FACT: The likelihood of a child actually seeing a dog/cat give birth is slim. Most births occur at night and in a secluded area. The only lesson the child learns is that dogs can be created and discarded as humans see fit. The real miracle your child should experience is the knowledge that by preventing your dog from having babies, you are potentially saving the lives of hundreds of other dogs.

MYTH: My dog/cat is a purebred.

FACT: At least one out of every four dogs turned in to animal shelters around the country are purebred. There are just too many dogs bred, both mixed breed and purebred.

MYTH: My dog will not be protective if I neuter him.

FACT: A dog’s natural instinct to protect his home and family is not affected by spaying or neutering. A dog’s personality owes much more to genetics and environment than sex hormones.

MYTH: I don’t want my male dog/cat to feel like less of a male.

FACT: Dogs have no concept of sexual identity or ego and neutering does not change a dog’s basic personality. He doesn’t suffer in any way when neutered.

MYTH: My dogcat is so special; I want a puppy/kitten just like her.

FACT: A professional dog breeder, whose bloodlines stretch back for generations, has no guarantee of getting a particular characteristic from a litter. The dog owner’s chances are even slimmer. In fact, a 

 

whole litter of puppies might wind up getting only the worst characteristics of your pet dog and her mate.

MYTH: Spaying and neutering is too expensive.

FACT: The cost of spaying or neutering is based on the age, size, and sex of the dog, your veterinarian’s fees, and other variables. However, spay or neuter surgery is a one-time cost, and if you factor in the many benefits, such as improved health throughout your dog’s lifetime, it is a relatively small charge. It’s a bargain compared to the costs associated with raising a litter of puppies, such as exams for the mother dog, puppy checks and vaccinations, the extra food you need, etc. If complications arise and you need emergency veterinary services, the costs could rise into the thousands. There is also the amount of time you will need to devote to the mother dog and her babies; two months of pregnancy followed by two more months before the puppies are weaned and ready to go to new homes. Most importantly, the price is small when compared to the satisfaction of knowing that you are not contributing to the very real problem of too many dogs and too few homes available for them. You can also check with your local animal welfare organizations. Many of them offer low-cost spay and neuter services.

 

MAYO SPCA issues discounted price vouchers to anyone in need - not just to people who adopt our cats!   We also issue discounted vouchers for neutering/spaying dogs - all of which should be operated on at 6 months of age which is the time they commence breeding.  Many rescue centres will also TNR ~"Trap, Neuter & Return" strays in your area. Contact us for more information on being a responsible pet owner and Spaying/Neutering your pets as well as our "TNR" efforts.
