The ISPCA promotes a number of campaigns each year targeting some of the animal welfare issues in Ireland today. These campaigns look for legislative changes or public education to secure improved welfare conditions for domestic, farm and wild aniimals. After joining Eurogroup for Animals in 2016, the ISPCA has partnered with them on a number of European campaigns as well. You can find out more information about our curent campaigns below.
The ISPCA launched The Big Stop campaign in February 2016, seeking a nationwide ban on the use of wild animals in circuses. The ISPCA is opposed to the use of wild animals in cirucses on welfare and ethical grounds, and believe that a travelling circus cannot provide a suitable environment for wild animals such as elephants, tigers and sea lions.
SpayAware is an annual public awareness campaign that aims to reduce Ireland's high numbers of abandoned cats and dogs by persuading more owners to spay or neuther their pets. Not only does responsible spaying and neutering reduce the numbers of unwanted cats and dogs, it also provides health benefits for your pet.
The ISPCA is calling for a review of the legislation surrounding live transports of animals for slaughter. As a member of Eurogroup for Animals, the ISPCA is joining other animal welfare organisations from around Europe to call for the currently insufficient and unenforced legislation to be replaced with shorter maximum journey times and a general review of the Transport Regulation (Ref. Leg., 1/2005).
