About Us



Roscommon SPCA (Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals)

Charity Registration No: 20072735  &  CHY 18790 is a non-profit organization run by people who volunteer their time. And is affiliated with the Irish Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ISPCA). We lookout for the care and protection of animals in County Roscommon, Ireland. We believe that animals should have:

  1. Freedom from hunger or thirst by ready access to fresh water and a diet to maintain full health and vigour.
  2. Freedom from discomfort by providing an appropriate environment including shelter and a comfortable resting area.
  3. Freedom from pain, injury or disease by prevention or rapid diagnosis and treatment.
  4. Freedom to express normal behaviour by providing sufficient space, proper facilities and company of the animal’s own kind.
  5. Freedom from fear and distress by ensuring conditions and treatment which avoid mental suffering.

Our 2020 Animal Welfare Stats.

Last year was one of the busiest in the history of Roscommon SPCA. Despite the COVID -19 restrictions and movement we still managed to help a huge number of animals in the County and outside. Our Annual Veterinary Care Bills came to over (€60K) Sixty Thousand euro. It was also the year that our external fundraising ceased, and we had to turn to our social media platforms. Thanks to the ongoing support of our supporters and followers we can report our stats with a hint of pride I must say. But, without the commitment of all our volunteers and your donations, we could not achieve this. Thanks to the commitment of our Foster Carers, we saved so many small lives.
