Thank you so much Horseware Ireland for your very kind donation of equine rugs, helping to keep our many rescued horses, ponies, donkeys and foals warm and dry this winter.
The ISPCA is proud to continue our strong partnership with Horseware Ireland enabling us to continue our vital work rescuing and rehabilitating Ireland’s most cruelly treated, neglected and abused animals.
This generous donation makes a huge difference to the equines we rescue from cruelty, neglect and abuse and we are delighted to receive such high quality equine rugs to help care for the many equines at our Centres.
88% of ISPCA funding is received from public donations, legacies and gifts in kind like this one which is vital in helping us manage our costs.
By donating items like equine rugs, good quality hay, wood shavings, animal feed, veterinary supplies or even tea for our volunteers, you are helping us continue our work helping Ireland’s most vulnerable animals. ~Thank You~

The Big Stop Campaign a major success!
The ISPCA warmly welcomes the announcement that Ireland will introduce a ban on the use of wild animals in circuses with effect from 1st January 2018 by way of a Regulation under the Animal Health and Welfare Act.
Huge thanks to our amazing supporters and affiliated members for supporting our Big Stop Campaign. We received 27,625 online petition signatures supporting our call for a ban on the use of wild animals in circuses.
We would like to congratulate Minister Michael Creed and his officials for this progressive step for animal welfare in Ireland, which now becomes the 20th EU Member State to introduce a ban or restrictions on the use of wild animals in travelling circuses. A total of 42 countries across the world have recognised that the physical and psychological needs of wild animals cannot be met in a travelling circus environment.
ISPCA CEO Dr Andrew Kelly said: “I am delighted that Ireland has announced a ban on the use of wild animals in circuses following many years of campaigning by the ISPCA. Travelling circuses cannot and will never be able provide a suitable environment for wild animals such as elephants, tigers and lions which have complex physical and psychological welfare needs. Coercing wild animals into doing tricks, which are actually abnormal behaviours for these animals, for human entertainment is outdated and it is right that it is being consigned to the history books where it belongs.
We launched the Big Stop Campaign in February 2016 to highlight the serious animal welfare concerns associated with the use of wild animals in circuses and have been calling upon the Irish government to implement a complete ban as soon as possible. The Animal Health and Welfare Act 2013 has five core principles for animals which include: Freedom from hunger and thirst; Freedom from discomfort; Freedom from pain, injury and disease; Freedom to exhibit natural behaviour; Freedom from fear and distress.

Please keep your pets securely indoors today walking your dogs before dark. It’s best to keep them occupied using a toy filled with a healthy treat to help distract their attention and keep them calm during any fireworks or when answering the door to trick-or-treaters. The ISPCA is also highlighting the importance of ensuring your pets are microchipped and wearing ID tags so that they can be reunited with you in the event they escape whilst answering the door
Dressing up for Halloween can be great fun for kids, and for adults too! Some people may want to dress up their pets, but you should not put any costume on your pet unless you are absolutely sure that they will enjoy it! Never force your pet into a costume. Most pets will be anxious or uncomfortable in clothes, so for these pets a festive collar or bandana is a better choice. If you are putting anything on your pet, make sure that it doesn’t restrict movement, breathing, or any other natural behaviour and never leave them unsupervised.
Please visit our website here http://www.ispca.ie/protecting_animals_at_halloween for more tips and advice to keep your pets safe this Halloween. #halloween#pets#petsafety#ispca#keeppetssafe#keeppetsinside
