In advance of Halloween – a terrifying time for domestic pets and outdoor farm animals – the ISPCA once again urgently appeals for financial support, to address the alarming rise in animal abandonment and cruelty cases

“Donors’ generosity has been amazing so far, helping us to reach 25 per cent of our goal,” said the ISPCA with the launch of its National Emergency Appeal at Merrion Square recently.

One heartwarming success story is Cáilín, a Corgi rescued from an illegal puppy farm. Through her owner Kaydi, Cáilín found a loving home, one of 115 dogs rehomed through the animal charity’s campaign.

“Cáilín’s transformation shows the power of compassion and second chances. While the ISPCA remains dedicated to animal welfare, the surge in cases requires additional resources, including rented emergency accommodation for animals in need.”

The National Emergency Appeal serves as a lifeline for animals facing dire circumstances. Every contribution aids in providing shelter, medical care, and, most importantly, hope.

“Your support can make a real difference. Last month saw International Legacy Giving Day celebrated. Leaving a legacy gift in your Will to the ISPCA is a wonderful way to celebrate your love of animals and the unconditional love and companionship they have given you.

“By doing so, you will be helping to rescue many more animals so that they can take that first step to a happy new life. By making your Will, you’ll have the peace of mind of knowing that those you care about will be looked after and that your wishes for your loved ones, friends and family will be respected.
