The ISPCA Inspectors are at the forefront of animal welfare, they respond to allegations of cruelty, neglect and abuse and also to aid sick and injured animals. In the vast majority of cases our officers find a solution to most problems by working with the owners of the animal(s) involved. Unfortunately however, this is not always the case and on occasion instances of cruelty, neglect or abuse are uncovered. The ISPCA Inspectorate directly interacts with thousands of animals throughout the year, and where necessary competently follow prosecutions.
There are currently six ISPCA Inspectors covering 14 counties
The ISPCA Inspectorate provide regular support, training and advice to aid other counties not directly covered.
The volume of calls to the ISPCA National Animal Cruelty Helpline has increased in recent years and continues to rise, stretching our services beyond measure. If you believe an animal is being cruelly treated or neglected contact the ISPCA National Animal Cruelty Helpline in the strictest of confidence.
