Run with us and help abused animals

The ISPCA is asking women who love animals to join ISPCA Inspectors Karen Lyons and Elaine Whyte on their 10k mini marathon challenge taking place on Bank Holiday Monday 1st June 2015.

“With over 21,000 calls for help made to the ISPCA National Animal Cruelty Helpline last year, we have been busier than ever helping so many vulnerable animals” said ISPCA Inspector Elaine Whyte.  

The ISPCA is asking the women of Ireland to dust off their runners and join Team ISPCA to walk, run, jog or crawl with us giving animals a voice and a second chance of a happy home.

It is unfortunate that during times of reduced income, animal neglect is one of the biggest problems ISPCA Inspectors encounter. Your support is vital enabling us to continue our work rescuing animals that need us the most.

ISPCA Inspector Karen Lyons said “We understand times are financially very difficult and we are very grateful for the efforts people go to in raising funds for the ISPCA. Even a small amount of fundraising makes a big difference to the work we do and so many animals in our care will benefit from supporting events like the Vhi Women’s Mini Marathon”.

If you can, join Team ISPCA on Monday 1st June in Dublin by registering for your race number on and then order your ISPCA marathon pack here.

Note the closing date for registration is Friday 17th April or when the maximum number of 40,000 entries has been received so don’t delay and register today!

If you cannot participate why not support ISPCA inspectors Elaine  and Karen by making a small donation to their fundraising pages, even €5 would make a huge difference to the lives of cruelly treated animals.  Your donations are secure on the Just Giving platform and all monies are sent directly to the ISPCA to support our services.

Why your participation is so valuable:

Each year it costs €1.4M to run ISPCA services, and almost 90% of this comes from public donations. The money raised from this event will go directly to helping support the ISPCA National Animal Cruelty Helpline 1890 515 515 which receives over 21,000 calls annually.  We have six ISPCA Inspectors on the front line of animal cruelty prevention who investigate approximately 4,000 cases of animal abuse every year with two animal rescue centres, the National Animal Centre in Longford and the ISPCA Equine Centre in Cork. 

Thank you so much!
