Challenge yourself by taking part in a marathon to support the ISPCA

The ISPCA is calling on our supporters, friends, heroes and champions to sign up to a marathon event in aid of the ISPCA to help support the growing demand for our services.

#HappyTails is all about loving homes for the animals we have rescued and your fundraising efforts will help us to rescue, rehabilitate and responsibly rehome the many animals that have been cruelly treated, neglected and abused.

If you are running, jogging, walking a marathon or taking part in any sponsored challenges, we would be delighted if you would consider supporting the ISPCA as your chosen charity.

Contact our fundraising team on (087) 0512603 or by email for information on setting up a fundraising sponsorship page and to send you our marathon pack.

If you can and would like to enter into a marathon to help rehome our animals please sign up here to receive your marathon pack.
