World Animal Week – Love your pets!

World Animal Week is an annual event celebrated around the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi (4th October), the patron saint of animals.  To celebrate this event, Pedigree® and Whiskas® along with RTE and other welfare organisations are inviting you to vote for Ireland’s Best Loved Dog and Cat in preparation for World Animal Week.  We want to find the healthiest, happiest and most loved pets in Ireland.  For more information, visit

Why not enter your Dog or Cat and be in with a chance to win a fabulous prize for you and your pet worth €3,000.  Simply send an e-mail to and tell us why your dog or cat is the best loved in Ireland. We welcome information about your dog or cat’s history, personality, grooming, health, diet, hobbies, etc but remember to keep your entry under 150 words! Don’t forget to send a picture too. Note judges will not be choosing winners based on good looks alone! Deadline is 15th of September so visit for further information. Online voting will begin on Monday 20th September and the winners will be unveiled on RTE 2fm.

World Animal Week helps raise awareness for the difference we can all make to improve animal welfare and to make the world a better and safer place for all animals that play such an important part in our lives.  There is no limit to what you can do but the important thing is to get involved. You can help the ISPCA in so many ways like organise a fundraising event, make a donation, rehome a rescued animal, become a volunteer, or purchase ISPCA merchandise available on-line. The ISPCA needs your support this year more than ever to continue helping animals. How you make a difference during World Animal Week is up to you but the important thing is to get involved and give animals a voice. You can make such a difference!
