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.
