Welcome to LSPCA.ie!

Donate Poster

At LSPCA.ie, you can keep up to date on all that we’re doing at the Laois SPCA, see our upcoming events, find out how you can help us and see the animals we have in our care waiting to be rehomed.

If you can, we would be very grateful if you could donate to the Laois SPCA on our Donations page. Your donations go directly to helping the animals in our care.

Don’t forget to visit the Laois SPCA charity shop in Hynd’s Square, Portlaoise! All proceeds go directly to helping the animals in our care.

The Laois SPCA have so far this year subsidised the neutering of nearly 500 owned cats and issued over 70 half-cost neutering vouchers to dog owners. This has only been possible because of the Department of Agriculture, Food and the Marine Animal Welfare Grant for which we are extremely thankful.

Foster Carers Needed

We are currently looking for both cat and dog foster carers. All vet’s bills, food and litter are covered by us. All we need is your time and compassion. Every day we have several calls from people finding kittens, or people finding litters in their garden and asking us to pick them up. We usually have a lot of cats and kittnes in our care, with only a handful of foster carers.

We were overrun with kittens last year and this is primarily due to people taking on small kittens and losing interest as they get older and neglecting to neuter them. Kittens can be neutered from 4 months onwards, as advised by the […]

      Love at first sight — An update on Chester

      14th Sep 2020Over 5 years ago, this lovely dog Chester came into our care in the most appalling state. He came from the Myshall puppy farm, so you know the condition he was in, without us going into details. Five years ago, we thought we had found his forever home, but a few weeks ago his owner […]
