Featured LSPCA Profile

Abe's profile pictureAbeThis old gentleman came into our care after he was found in a shed eating turf and stones. A kind lady who was feeding cats nearby for a neighbour took pity on him, fed him and contacted us for help. When he first came into our care he struggled to stand, his back legs weak and unable to support him. He was filthy with bad ear mites but, importantly, his heart was strong. He spent a couple of days in Portlaoise Veterinary Clinic, bloods were taken to see if there was a more sinister reason for his thin, weak condition but the tests were clear, it was simply starvation. He was given a name - Abe. Abe was brought to one of our foster homes, given a comfortable bed and special sensitive food for his digestive system, little and often. He cowered when a hand went near enough to give him a rub and his tail didn’t wag. But Abe turned a corner, his tummy settled and he started to straighten up when he stood. Today, his big old tail thumped loudly on the bed when his fosterer came in and he walked up to her, still winced when her hand came close but not nearly as much and enjoyed a good scratch! When we first took Abe in, we felt he may have already given up but it isn’t the case, there’s plenty of life in the old dog yet! He just badly needed some tlc and we’re confident he’ll come on in leaps and bounds. So now, the difficulty - he needs a kind home to spend his twilight years and there aren’t that many homes out there for old dogs. He’s such a good fellow, perfect with other dogs and the cats rub up against him, he’s just a totally chilled old dude. He loves eating and sleeping (preferably in front of the fire) and won’t need much walking when he gets his strength back. If you feel you could offer Abe a place in front of your hearth, please complete our dog adoption form and call 086 4169559

    We received a call late this afternoon to say that an adult dog and 2 pups were seen in the Glendine Glenregan area of the Slieve Bloom Mountains. Both the dog and the puppies appeared in poor condition, quite thin and very nervous. When this was first reported it was assumed that it was a mammy and her 2 pups but it turned out to be a male dog and 2 female puppies.
