Meet Thanos, Snowbird and Dr. Doom.

Meet Dr Doom, Thanos and Snow Bird.

Dr Doom arrived on 16th Novemeber having being rescued and transported from Bastardstown beach, Co. Wexford by John Hogan. Dr Doom was dehydrated and he was very underweight and suffering from a head and jaw injury. He was approximately 4 - 5 weeks old when found and weighing only 14kg which is birth weight...he should have been well over 30kg at this age, so had sadly lost all condition. Dr Doom was treated for dehydration with regular feeds of fluids and started immediately on antibiotics to treat his injuries. Initially he remained under a heat lamp to keep him warm but he has since moved out to a kennel where he is getting stronger every day and learning to eat fish by himself which is fantastic!


Thanos arrived on 18th November from Clegan Pier, Connemara, Co. Galway after being found with a nasty respiratory infection and suffering from head trauma. He was only around 2 weeks old with his fluffy white coat still intact and obviously having been separated from his mum. A huge thank you to everyone involved in his epic rescue! Bartley from Galway SPCA for picking him up and transporting him, and Peter Lacey and Caroline McGuire for relaying him to our centre for prompt treatment.


Snow Bird arrived on 19th November from Spanish Point, Co. Clare. She was very small at 14kg and around 3 weeks old when she should have been around 40kg! She had obviously been separated from her mother for a long time and lost all condition leaving her emaciated and weak. A huge thank you to Ken O'Sullivan for rescuing her! 

After initial fluid therapy for hydration and warmth in our ICU, Snow Bird is now doing much better and has begun to eat on her own which is wonderful!
