WELL done to the ISPCA dedicated team who have brought a gentle little pony back to health. The small pony, now named May by ISPCA staff, strayed onto a busy road at the start of May. An ISPCA Inspector found her trembling and in pain with many wounds to her face and neck.

She was brought to the ISPCA’s National Animal Centre in Longford for urgent treatment. She had a massive injury across her lower neck. The vet removed dead skin to prevent life threatening infection; exposing flesh and blood almost the size of an A4 piece of paper. Despite the pain, this gentle young filly never showed any fear or aggression. May will remain under vet supervision for many more months such is the extent of her injuries.

A kind donation to support the ISPCA’s work, could help rescue more hurt and injured animals like May so that they too can get the treatment, care, and love they desperately need. And when ready, a happy, loving home. If you can, please donate to the ISPCA.

The ISPCA encourages members of the public to report any animal welfare concerns to the ISPCA’s National Animal Cruelty Helpline in confidence on 0818 515 515, email helpline@ispca.ie or visit www.ispca.ie
