Fundraising

Thanks for visiting our fundraising page.  We would very much appreciate your support in helping us to raise funds for Roscrea SPCA.

Roscrea SPCA was formed in 1995 by a small group of people with an interest in animal welfare. The society is run by volunteers who do not receive monetary compensation for their work.

We would like to thank everyone who has supported the Society over the years and hope that you will continue to support us in the years to come.

Any money received by the Society goes towards the neutering and care of animals.

Below is our A-Z list of fundraising event ideas.  If you would like to hold a fundraising even for Roscrea SPCA, please contact us. 

Maybe you have an idea for a fundraising even which we have not thought of?  Please let us know about your idea, we’re a bit short on X, Y and Z!
