Help Us

The USPCA is a Registered Charity and receives no financial support from government. We rely on the generosity of our members and other concerned individuals to provide the funds necessary to fulfil our charitable purpose.

The absence of government funding presents us with both a problem and a positive. The downside is evident as in common with many other Charities we must rely heavily on legacy funding and this dependence means our future cash resources are unpredictable. In order to meet our commitments good governance is essential. The benefit is our detachment from the influences of government, we are beholding only to our supporters and to the animals we seek to protect.

If you value our work please help us protect the provinces animals. They need our help. A number of established fundraising options are set out in this section and we welcome any new initiatives.

It is the USPCA pledge to use any funds you donate to prevent cruelty and relieve the suffering of animals in need.

Volunteering & Careers

Volunteering & Careers

The USPCA is overwhelmed at the kindness and support every day of people who would like to work or volunteer at our Newry Animal Hospital, and while we appreciate the kindness and selflessness shown by supporters we don’t always have positions available.

Any career or volunteering opportunities that become available will always be posted on our website, our Facebook page and on Twitter.

You can support the USPCA is by liking us on Facebook and following us on Twitter and sharing, retweeting, commenting and helping us to campaign to prevent cruelty to animals.

Regular Donations

The USPCA welcomes all donations. However, a regular and dependable flow of monthly income is an extremely valuable resource. Two inevitable repercussions of our currently depressed economy are a reduction in giving and an increase in need. Your monthly donation will help us protect and rescue these additional abused animals.

If you can manage a monthly donation in support of ALL animals please complete the Standing Order Form and return it to the address shown.

REMEMBER…… It’s ‘U’ that sets us apart.

Without the foresight and vision in their lifetime of our deceased benefactors the USPCA would struggle to meet our charitable objectives.

The gifts we receive are a lifeline to countless abused and neglected animals. On their behalf the USPCA wishes to record its sincere thanks to those concerned individuals who continue to provide for animal welfare long after their passing.

If you wish to make a bequest to this Charity and its welfare work on behalf of ULSTER’S animals please inform your legal advisor of your wishes. It is very important the intended recipient is clearly shown as the ULSTER SOCIETY PREVENTION OF CRUELTY TO ANIMALS and the Registered Charity Number XN 45066 is quoted.

Donations in Lieu of Flowers

This Charity receives many such donations and we appreciate the foresight on the part of the deceased. If you wish the money normally expended on wreaths to go to this Charity tell those family members closest to you and your wishes will be respected.

The receipt of such donations is welcome confirmation of your support for the Charity receiving the tangible benefit.
