MISSY - LABRADOR/COLLIE MIX
Very gentle and kind -- Missy is 8 years old and would be ideal for an older couple with a secure garden -- 6' fence or walls. Even though she is middle aged and overweight, she is still athletic! She has been used to being kept outdoors, but does enjoy coming into the house. Missy would like a home that will help her feel more confident being indoors with her human pack members. She gets on well with other dogs and doesn't seem to mind being indoors in her kennel here. A lovely natured female with lots of love to give!
NED - MALE DONKEY
AS WE HAVE NO CATEGORY FOR EQUINES, I HAD TO PUT THE DONKEY ON THE DOG SECTION!
Ned was found abandoned and straying in the Castleshane area several weeks ago. He has recently come into our care and is in a field with 2 other male donkeys. The vet came out last week to castrate him and trim his hooves, but Ned played hard to get, so he now has a head collar on (thanks to Peter & Mary O'Neill). Peter is going to walk him daily and hopefully this week the vet will be able to perform the surgery. Huge thanks to Carol Lambe who helped Sharon McNulty (MSPCA) transport him to this field. As Carol guided him off the transport box He was delighted to see the 2 other donkeys (see bottom photo) and is gentle and allows you to pet him. The MSPCA wants to re-home him to a person that has another donkey or 2. We will provide updates on Ned, but in the meantime, if you are interested in adopting this handsome fella, please contact us.

She is not your typical GSD - does not want to guard, only wants to be cuddled and made a fuss over. Sahara is looking for a quieter adult home that is familiar with the GSD breed and will allow her time and space and loads of positive attention. Based on her condition upon arrival, she did not have the best of care in the past.
Please phone Orla Doran (MSPCA Kennel Manager) on 086-403-9618 to learn more about this special girl and to see if you can provide the right home for her. She won all of hearts immediately and we are so thrilled to see her transformation from being so timid and unsure to being happy and content!

(bottom photo is after Curtis's grooming -- thanks to Nicola Morgan)
This handsome fella is gentle, friendly and has a wonderful temperament. Curtis is approx. 4 years old and is house-trained, good on the lead, and will sit on command. He gets along with females and properly matched dogs Curtis enjoys long walks, playing in the exercise field, but most of all being around people and receiving attention. Curtis came into the MSPCA from Monaghan Pound as a stray. On arrival to our shelter we noticed he was lame and held up his back right leg sometimes when running. We took him to our vet, who x-rayed his leg and informed us he has an old injury to this leg. It has healed/mended and no surgery was required, and he said it is not causing him any discomfort or pain. The vet did say that arthritis might develop in the damaged bone when he is older. It does not inhibit his running or walking ability at all! Curtis has been with us early November and still is awaiting a loving home. He is so relaxed when he comes into our office -- but is stressed by shelter life! Please come and meet this great guy -- he make a wonderful companion!
