Lacey’s story

29th Jun 2019
Hi, I’m the mother of the 5 kittens that were found during the week in Mountrath. I’m only about 8 months old myself and haven’t had a great life up till now. Believe it or not, I was once a cute little kitten that everyone loved to cuddle, but — once the tom cats came […]

Invisible Cats

21st Jun 2019
A big shout out to Colm, a Portlaoise postman, who rang in about this very sick cat. He had noticed it on his rounds in The Garden Village yesterday and thought it didn’t look well. However, on his rounds today it was still hanging around and looked considerably worse. He rang Vet-care, who rang us. […]

Kitten Food Appeal

20th Jun 2019
The kittens are still flooding in… All of these kittens are a long way off rehoming. They need veterinary attention and weeks of building up in preparation for vaccinations and neutering. During this time we go through an unbelievable amount of kitten food. If you can help by donating a box or two, it would […]


New Home Urgently Wanted

8th Apr 2019
Through no fault of their own this lovely pair are looking for a new home. We have been asked to remove them from a shopping mall in Portlaoise.


11th Mar 2019
The lovely Radagast headed off on Saturday (9/3/18) to her new home. An older lady who was found shivering and starving behind a hotel. Radagast needed to gain weight before she could start her immunisations but this she did quite quickly and she soaked up all the love and attention she got in her foster […]


11th Mar 2019
Last Thursday (7/3/18), we welcomed this little girl, Trixie, into our care from the Laois pound. Only a year old and so scared, but a sweet gentle girl behind the fear. She’ll get plenty of TLC and will be spayed, vaccinated and microchipped before looking for her new home. We’ll keep you posted on Trixie’s […]

Update on the puppies found dumped in a bag

1st Jan 2019
Not a good start to the year… Following on from yesterday’s news item on the seven puppies found in a bag — unfortunately one puppy passed away last night (31st) and the remaining one died early this morning. They were very weak when they came in to us —  God only know how long they were […]

Kitten rejected on Christmas day

27th Dec 2018
Unfortunately, one of our volunteers ended up having to collect this kitten on Christmas night, an unwanted Christmas present. Seriously what do some humans have as brains? Why would you go out and get an animal who needs love and care for someone without checking with them first?

Happy Christmas from the Laois SPCA

20th Dec 2018
THE LAOIS SPCA would like to thank all our supporters for the help they have given us during the year.

Jesse and our volunteer spent a lovely afternoon on Monday, with the 3rd year students of Portlaoise College and their teacher Ms Scully. What amazing students, they are really concerned for the welfare of animals. A big THANK YOU for the fabulous hamper, our puppies are having a great time playing with all the toys. […]

Portlaoise GAA gone to the Dogs

5th Nov 2018
We learned today that, unfortunately, the Portlaoise GAA are planning to have a fundraiser at the greyhound track in Newbridge next week. We believe this is a very poor choice of venue and would ask that the Portlaoise GAA reconsider this form of fundraising. We would encourage everyone at the club to take the time […]

Puppies are not Christmas presents!

3rd Nov 2018
The calls have started already. People have been calling us trying to book a kitten or puppy for Christmas. “Oh, can I pick it up on Christmas Eve?” No, our volunteers work hard enough during the year and deserve to have Christmas Eve to themselves to enjoy with their own animals and animals they are […]

Uncared for Kitten found in car park

20th Sep 2018
This poor little 4 week old was found this morning in Laois County Hall carpark by a nice lady called Sandra who contacted us. She was freezing cold, terrified and with a very sore leg. Another good reason to neuter your cats. Obviously unwanted and uncared for 😞
