Huge thanks to the Lough Rynn Castle for donating this generous prize to support our vital work.

Lough Rynn is one of Ireland’s most luxurious castle hotels, steeped in history, charm and beauty and we can’t think of a better place to enjoy a night away.

There is no better time to appreciate just how much love and joy our pets bring to our lives than during World Animal Week (1st – 7th October)

Did you know that it takes an average of 54 days for a rescued animal to recover from cruelty, neglect or abuse, needing a lot of care and expensive veterinary treatment? You can support the ISPCA in so many ways like sharing our rescue stories, rehoming an animal, signing up to our newsletter, or by making a kind donation to help the many rescued animals in our care or by simply giving your pet(s) some extra love and attention.

PS. The ISPCA is also asking pet owners to be responsible by ensuring their pet’s welfare needs are met, and that they are neutered/spayed and micro-chipped.
