Another animal rights event is planned for Wednesday, October 4, scheduled to coincide with World Animal Day.  

“The main focus of this event will be to raise awareness of the animal welfare crisis that faces animals currently living in rescue services. What better day than on World Animal Day to highlight our companion animals which includes dogs, cats, horses and small animals e.g. rabbits, etc” said Lisa O’Connor of Missing Stolen Pets Ireland.

“We the public also want to gather to show support to all the volunteers and rescue organisations who give so much to the plight of these animals. 

“You are not alone, we are here to help in anyway we can” she said.

“We hope to increase the number of followers in this growing movement of people who wholeheartedly agree there is no excuse for animal abuse in Irish society today. 

“TNR & Dog Rescue West Dublin, Limerick Animal Welfare, Dogs Angels Ireland, Husky Rescue, The Hairy Project, Deise Animal Sanctuary, New Ross SPCA and Brenda representing LittleHill Animal Rescue (Kildare) are a few of the rescues that will be there and supporting this event on October 4.” 

Lisa is reaching out to as many high profile celebrities and public figures as possible in the hopes they might join their campaign event on the day, and to help reach more people. 

“The expected turnout is hopefully in the thousands, so please, take note of the date and time and join us at St Stephen’s Green from 1-3pm on Wednesday, October 4 (meeting at the Wolfe Tone Sculpture). All welcome please.”
