  • Wildlife Rescues

    Wildlife Rescues


    Through our Animal Rescue Service, the USPCA relieves the suffering of injured native wildlife.

    Our Welfare Officers respond to hundreds of calls, bringing the injured animal for examination by a USPCA vet in Newry. Badgers, birds of prey, hedgehogs, swans, foxes … are just some of the animals rescued and treated at the USPCA and released back into their native habitat.

    Where it is not possible for one of our Welfare Officers to attend, we operate a Veterinary Voucher Scheme to ensure pain relief is available through a local veterinary practice.

    Animal Re-homing


    Where an individual is no-longer able to look after their companion animal because of their changed circumstances or where a companion animal has been abandoned, the USPCA will ensure the animal finds a new caring owner. All animals are health checked by our vets before being rehomed and a home check is carried out to ensure a successful match.

    Animal Cruelty Investigations


    Investigations into serious welfare abuses that often take place well away from the public view are a very important aspect of our work.

    In recent times Badger persecution, Cock Fighting, Dog Fighting, Puppy Farms and the illegal trafficking of pups have all been subjected to USPCA scrutiny. Information gleaned through our investigative expertise has been passed to enforcement agencies and successful prosecutions have resulted.
