Roscommon SPCA is run on a day to day basis by volunteers and we are only a few, we cannot be everywhere, so we are looking for some help. We are inundated with calls about cats and kittens at the moment, including sick and injured ones. We are looking to set up a database of people willing to foster on a long term basis and in an emergency for our cats and kittens.
All veterinary care will be paid for us and we will provide as much food etc as we can. If you feel you can foster, please get in touch with us, we are not experts in everything we do but we always try our best. If you can help, please fill in our short online fostering inquiry form here.

Once this information is received, a reference number will be given to you. A reference number will not be issued unless all of the information is provided. Proof of address may be required.
This is the ideal opportunity to get cats spayed/neutered now.
The importance of spaying/neutering:
Kittens can become pregnant at between 4 and 6 months old.
They can mate with their siblings. (Sick and deformed from inbreeding)
Cats can stay in heat constantly but generally 2 to 3 times a year and for several weeks at a time and for all of their lives. (No menopause). It is possible to have 5 or 6 litters per year. And can become pregnant by more than one Tom at a time.
