THE ISPCA IS appealing for new homes for over 90 cats and kittens currently being cared for across the country.

A total of 68 are currently being cared for at the National Animal Centre in Longford, 19 cats and kittens are available for rehoming at the ISPCA’s Donegal Animal Rehabilitation Centre and four kittens at a rescue centre in Mallow, Cork.

An inspector recently removed ten kittens from a property in Wicklow where the cats were breeding out of control.

Once in ISPCA care, they were assessed by a vet, treated for parasites, vaccinated and received veterinary treatment for any illnesses.

ISPCA Centre Manager Hugh O’Toole said cat overpopulation is a serious animal welfare concern and the ISPCA is currently caring for 68 cats and kittens at our National Animal Centre. 

“Some cats and kittens are being treated for various ailments in our isolation unit which is now full to capacity, with a waiting list of more cats and kittens to be admitted. Once they receive the veterinary all-clear, they will be moved from isolation to our main cattery when they are ready for adoption. 

“Anyone thinking of getting a cat or kitten, please get in touch.  We’re are open to visitors Wednesdays to Sundays from 11:30am to 4pm where you can come in and meet the many animals in our care.

“We can all make a difference by neutering or spaying our cats and kittens as soon as possible giving them the best chance of a longer, healthier and happier life.”
