This legal handbook has been produced with many people in mind: members, and especially secretaries, of local SPCA`s, local and national animal welfare Inspectors, other animal welfare bodies in Ireland, and particularly the Garda Siochána, who have the statutory authority over animal welfare in this country, and to whom we are all greatly indebted for their work in enforcing the laws that protect animals. It is our hope that this book will make it easier for everyone concerned to prevent cruelty, and to foster a climate in which all animals are respected and protected from abuse.
