Just few of the many animals recued by Kilkenny SPCA
These two hedgehogs were rescued from a cattle grid where they had become trapped.
Both were released back into their normal habitat.
Whilst being on holiday in Southern Ireland in September 2009, we found 2 tiny semi-starved kittens (black and tabby) abandoned by their mother cat. It was truly heartbreaking so see that we were not able to save both kittens: the tiny black one only lived one day. He was so weak and even struggles to drink milk from the pippete. To start with we looked after tiny kittens for 4 days and nights, they were about 3 weeks old. One of the kittens, little grey tabby one is 3 weeks old on the video and photos, her name is Lilly. She is the most beautiful kitten isn't she? Sadly, we were not able to keep Lilly and take her to England with us. Irish SPCA http://www.kilkennyspca.ie/ helped us to find the loving and caring owners for Lilly. All the people in SPCA (www.kilkennyspca.ie) were so kind and helpful. We will always be so grateful for their kindness, care, support and love that they feel towards little helpless animals. Kilkenny SPCA help all the abundonded animals to find a loving and caring owners. The Kilkenny Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (Kilkenny SPCA) is a non-profit animal rescue and welfare organisation affiliated to the ISPCA. The Kilkenny SPCA was founded in 1882, and has been a registered charity since 1937. In the video I used my own little composition, a tune titled "You have stolen my heart". Piano arrangement by NAP music Ltd. Part of my heart will always belong to little most beautiful kitten Lilly. I hope you will enjoy watching the video of the most beautiful and loving little kittens.
