30th September 2019
Today, 30th September 2019, the ISPCA launched their 2020 Charity Calendar to raise vital funds during World Animal Week 1st – 7th October to coincide with the feast day of St Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals on World Animal Day, 4th October.
ISPCA Ambassador Rosanna Davison is supporting the charity along with her adorable dogs Ted and Leo calling on all animal lovers to raise awareness for animal welfare especially during World Animal Week.
Rosanna said: “I am always delighted to support the great work of the ISPCA and to help raise awareness for animal welfare, a cause close to my heart. There is so many ways to help the ISPCA like getting your copy of this fabulous calendar, to volunteering in your spare time or by adopting a rescued animal”.
ISPCA Public Relations Manager, Carmel Murray said: “We hope that by reading the heart-warming animal rescue stories in our calendar, that it will inspire animals lovers to continue supporting our vital work caring for Ireland’s most cruelly treated animals. All these beautiful images for the calendar was taken by the very talented Michelle from the Wet Nose Pet Photography Studio who kindly volunteered her time to support our work”.
Carmel added: “The calendars make a wonderful gift for the animal lover in your life and there is plenty of room for calendar notes too! As a charitable organisation, the ISPCA rely heavily on public support so we can continue our work rescuing, rehabilitating and responsibly rehoming thousands of animals with 88% of our funds coming from public donations. The 2020 calendars go on sale today for €10 and can be ordered from the ISPCA online shop on https://shop.ispca.ie. All proceeds raised will go towards helping many more vulnerable animals”.
Maggie, a golden Labrador featured in the calendar was rescued by the ISPCA from a puppy farm where she was kept in very poor living conditions. It took Maggie some time to trust humans again, but since her fabulous new family came along and adopted her, she hasn’t looked back and is now living the life of luxury by the Sea in Dublin. Always consider adopting a rescue dog says her new owner Davina!
