Fur farming is set to end in Ireland

The ISPCA welcomes the news that Fur farming in Ireland will soon come to an end after the bill to ban the practice passed final stage debate in the Seanad earlier this week. Once signed by President Michael D Higgins, it will become law.

The ISPCA has campaigned, along with Veterinary Ireland, Respect for Animals and Fur Free Alliance for an end to fur farming in Ireland on animal welfare and ethical grounds for a number of years. The bill was introduced in the Dáil by Solidarity TD, Deputy Ruth Coppinger.

As a member of Eurogroup for Animals, the ISPCA is pleased to support the joint position of our colleagues at Eurogroup for Animals (of which the ISPCA is a member), Fur Free Alliance and Humane Society International (Europe) and we were pleased to sign the joint letter to the EU Commission to support our colleagues calling for a ban on fur farming across the EU.
