How you can help

As we are a voluntary organisation we depend on the generosity of the people in Laois to keep this organisation afloat.

Every cent we receive goes towards helping all sick, injured and/or abused animals in Co. Laois.


You can donate to the Laois SPCA securely through PayPal, by bank transfer or by cash.

For information on how to donate, please visit our Donate page.


You can also help by fostering a dog or cat for the society. We have found in the past that by holding a large number of animals in one area that you increase the risk of viral infections. Therefore we now have several foster homes where a smaller number is held. If you would like to consider helping us by taking even just one animal for a short time we would love to hear from you. For more information:

  • See our Fostering page for more information.
  • Contact the LSPCA for more details.
  • Express your interest in fostering or adoption by completing the relevant application form in the Application Forms section.
  • For an up-to-date list of animals currently in need of a home, see our Rehoming section or visit our Facebook page.


We are always looking for people to help out and participate in our fundraising events (details to be found in the Events section), as well as more ideas for fundraising. If you are interested in helping or have any new ideas please give us a call or email – see our Contact Us page for details.

Collection Boxes

Our Society now has official counter top collection boxes to help us raise much-needed funds. If you are interested in taking a box, you can contact us for more info and we will be happy to help! Please see our Contact Us page for contact details.

Other ways to help

If you simply do not have the time to help out with fundraising or fostering there may be other ways you could help. For more info please give us a call or email – see our Contact Us page for details.
