Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals
The Dublin Society for Prevention of Cruelty to Animals is a registered charity, established in 1840 to prevent cruelty to animals and is now Ireland's largest animal welfare organisation. Cruelty, neglect, accidental injury and sickness to animals continues today - and we are still here dealing with these problems.
We care for animals by:
Investigating suspected cruelty and where appropriate prosecuting people who inflict cruelty on animals.
We have two Inspectors who cover the Dublin area.
Providing animal ambulance service to rescue sick and injured animals.
Caring for animals at our shelter in Rathfarnham.
Finding new homes for the animals in our care.
Providing advice and information to the public on pet care and animal related queries.
Providing accessible veterinary treatment at our mobile clinics.
Providing educational information and an information service, colleges and youth groups.
Providing career guidance advice for those interested in working with animals.
Working on legislative changes to improve protection for animals.
