We need your committed financial support so that we can grow and plan for the future. Your contribution SAVES LIVES. Join a wonderful group of people who are dedicated to the cause of animal welfare and support the vital work of the Dublin SPCA:

Fernando Torres 'Nando' the Gosling!
Nando was found in Ballymun last Friday by a member of the public and brought in by Inspector Robert Kenny, he is now two week old and the cutest thing we've seen in a long time. He has been adopted by Lorna Swift the Dublin SPCA Call Co-ordinator. She is taking him home at night. In an ideal world we would have tried to get him into a clutch with other goslings but whoever had him originally has imprinted him on humans. That means that he thinks he is human and has bonded with humans. We will work with him to rehabilite him back to his own kind as he gets older. In the meantime, he is hanging out in reception, answering phones and generally making lots of noise!
