OSPCA cater for 1,000 animals in one year

THE Offaly Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals have revealed that around 1,000 furred and feathered creatures have passed through the books, the homes and the lives of members of the Offaly SPCA during the year.

THE Offaly Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals have revealed that around 1,000 furred and feathered creatures have passed through the books, the homes and the lives of members of the Offaly SPCA during the year.

The issue, which the OSPCA said may even be an under-estimation, will be reviewed at their annual general meeting in Tullamore on Sunday next, April 10.

The venue is Hugh Lynch’s Function Room, Kilbride Street, and the meeting is scheduled to commence at 4pm.

The Agenda includes presentation of reports and financial statements, but another primary objective will be to introduce individual representatives of some of the many species of animals included in that very ‘grand’ figure of 1,000. In most cases, these introductions will be made in a power point presentation of photographs but a few extra special four-legged guests are expected to make personal appearances.

Everybody interested in animals and their welfare is welcome to attend the meeting. That’s because the organisers fully realise the debt that the society owe not only to their members but to the hundreds of animal lovers – of all ages – who support their activities in many different ways. After the meeting, all present will be invited to participate in light refreshments.
