Animal Welfare-Rights

Irish Council Against Blood Sports

The Irish Council Against Blood "Sports" was founded in 1966 and is a non-political, non-violent, non-sectarian and voluntary organisation.

In common with all animal welfare organisations, we condemn all cruelty deliberately inflicted on animals. We are actively campaigning through legal and peaceful means for the abolition of blood sports where one or more animals are set against another for the purpose of sport or entertainment and which result in the maiming, harassing or killing of that animal.


PAWS is a work in progress, we started out in February 1997 with the intention to rehome unwanted dogs from their current homes. However, we soon realised the huge amount of abuse, neglect and abandonment of Dogs and Cats throughout the County and we started to give them shelter and Veterinary care... News spread fast and soon we were dealing with cases from Cork and Kerry to Sligo and Donegal...

Sathya Sai Sanctuary Trust for Nature

The Trust was founded in 1991 primarily to offer a place of peace and refuge for old, injured, unwanted, abandoned, neglected and abused donkeys, who through no fault of their own, no longer fit into a world geared for profit and productivity and which is presently dominated by heavy agricultural machinery. Once an important part of the Irish heritage and farming economy these forgotten animals so often suffer through mankind's greed for money and power and even today are generally valued more for their financial worth than for the spirit within.
