We are always happy to visit schools and speak to children of all ages on the subject of animal welfare. We prefer to bring along a rescued dog that has been restored to health, but only with the permission of the School concerned.
Facts, figures and statistics are provided in order to provide a lesson from the visit.
Details of visits made to cases, photographs, and information on general animal care will be given.
A 'question and answer' session is encouraged.
Do please call us to make arrangements.
The future of animal welfare lies with the youth of today!
Our thanks to St Louis School, Kiltimagh, who recently had a collection and kindly raised 80 euro, thanks also to Ms Marie Flannagan who added 20 euro making a total of 100. A talk was given by Mspca member Anne Gill, and was enjoyed by all.
DONATION MARCH 2012
Education Officers Ann and Christine were delighted to receive an invitation to speak to pupils at Sancta Marian School in Louisebergh. It was such an enjoyable and very educational session at the end of which the pupils donation a cheque for 330 euro to Mayo Spca. Our sincere thanks for their kindness, generosity and hard work that must have gone into raising this amount. It will be put to very good use and help many of our rescued animals. Well done to all concerned.
Our Education Officers, Anne & Christine, had the pleasure of visiting Rice College, Westport, and speaking to pupils about the work of Mayo Spca and animal welfare in general. A very enjoyable time for all concerned and our thanks to staff and pupils for their kind gifts of dog food - we have plenty of mouths waiting for that!
RICE COLLEGE WESTPORT
Mayo SPCA introduce an abandoned Alsatian named “Captain” to the 2D (CSPE class)
Mayo SPCA is an organisation which looks after the welfare of abused and abandoned animals in Mayo. They are a voluntary run, non-profit making organisation, with a “no kill” policy, dedicated to the prevention of cruelty to animals in Co. Mayo.
Ms. Ferguson’s 2D CSPE class learned about Mayo SPCA as they investigated animal welfare issues in Ireland as part of their coursework. Mayo SPCA were kind enough to send two volunteers to visit the CSPE class on 3 October. The speakers were invited into our classroom to share some of their experiences and to answer questions relating to animal welfare in Mayo. The volunteers brought “Captain” a cream Alsatian with them. Captain was abandoned by his owners at the side of the road and was found by the SPCA. He now lives in Westport with a lovely family. He received a warm welcome and lots of attention from the class!
